Paper Street Soap Company

Organic bug spray certified by Oregon Tilth. Made from a list of lovely essential oils in a witch hazel extract. “You are probably wondering why there is a dragonfly on our bug spray instead of a mosquito or a tick; the dragonfly is the ultimate observer of the animal kingdom. Whereas the human eye, trichromatic, depends on three opsins — light-sensitive proteins — that absorb red, green, and blue light wavelengths respectively, the eye of a dragonfly has up to thirty-thousand facets and thirty-three opsins allowing it to see colors we cannot even imagine, even ultraviolet light, for a 360 degree view of the world in ultra high-definition, multicolor. This sense of vision makes the dragonfly the ultimate predator of the animal kingdom, catching more than ninety-five percent of its targeted prey…With its superior vision, the dragonfly approaches from below to avoid detection, uses its visual sharpness and lightning-quick reflexes as it keeps its prey in sight wiith its eyes locked on its target while adjusting its flight based on the predicted movements of its prey — which includes mosquitoes, flies, bees, ants, wasps…Our bug spray works 360 degrees to keep these pests at bay.”
