Making it Through 2020: Bug Bite Thing's Year in Review
As we close out the holiday season on this crazy year, our Bug Bite Thing team used the last few days of 2020 to reflect on many of the positive things that came out of it.
It’s been little more than a year since our founders, Kelley and Ellen, pitched investors on ABC’s “Shark Tank” and chose to make a deal with retail mogul, Lori Greiner, but 2020 didn’t offer any less excitement. From spotlights on the “The View” and in Rolling Stone, to our head mosquito magnet joining the Forbes Business Council, Bug Bite Thing focused on making moves to protect more people from the effects of insect bites and stings. We expanded our offices, brought on new team members and launched a new product, all with the ultimate goal of making sure you have more worry-free fun on your outings and explorations.
Besides each other and all of you, here is a peek at some of the things our Bug Bite Thing has to be grateful for this year.
