Spanish term or phrase:Frase de un slogan
La frase es:
"pícale adelante a los zancudos"
y el producto es un repelente de insectos.
Gracias a todo por el brainstorming.
[along the same lines...] "Stay a jump ahead of the mosquitoes"
Explanation: I really like "stay a bite ahead," because mosquitoes obviously do more biting than jumping, but the English idiomatic phrase is "stay a jump ahead of" (or "get a jump on," in the sense of gaining an early advantage over someone or something)... Anyone else inspired?
