THE STORY BEHIND STOPS THE STING!

Ever wonder what the story is behind Mountain Mike’s Remedies? It’s a great story. Our founder and inventor, Mike, was living in Tennessee when he realized his family bug ointment formula could bring relief to folks who love the outdoors, but hate those annoying bug bites! He did his homework and put his family recipe in a tube and called it Stops the Sting.

He knew he needed help to get his formula out to the people. He rounded up a group of folks who are passionate about spreading relief from all of those aggravating bug bites and bee stings. Meet Mike’s team of sting stoppers.
