Mosquito Formula: The four essential oils that make up our special blend are harvested from plants and are effective in repelling insects naturally. Other natural repellents include vanilla or citronella — ours includes vanillin, a pure, raw ingredient that when blended with essential oils is proven to improve the effectiveness and protection time of repellents.
Lemongrass oil (cymbopogon flexuosus) is obtained from the plant cymbopogon citratus, native to the Philippines, and is known for its insecticidal properties. Lemongrass oil is especially effective against mosquitoes and ants. It is safe and has no known negative environmental effects.
Geranium oil (pelargonium graveolens) contains citronellol and geraniol. Due to these compounds, this oil plays a helpful role as an insect repellent.
Peppermint oil (mentha piperita) comes from the peppermint plant, a cross between water mint and spearmint, and is commonly found in Europe and North America. It is one of the oldest oils with a very wide variety of uses, which includes aiding in the repelling of mosquitoes.
Cinnamon oil (cinnamomum verum) is usually found in the bark or leaves of trees in the Lauraceae family, and is one of the most effective natural mosquito repellents known.

Most often asked.
Below are a few questions we're most often asked.
CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS ON MY PETS?
Our repellents are safe to use on dogs and horses, but not cats. Essential oils are toxic to cats, and inhalation of the oils can potentially be life threatening to them. We do not recommend spraying our products on cats.
ARE THE REPELLENTS WATERPROOF?
As with most oil-based repellents, they are not waterproof and will need to be reapplied after exposure to water.
HOW OFTEN DO I APPLY YOUR REPELLENTS?
Our repellents should be reapplied as often as necessary depending on the outdoor environment and your level of activity. It may be necessary to reapply if you're in an outdoor environment where the insect population is high and the duration of your outdoor stay is longer than two hours.
Environmental conditions such as humidity, sun exposure, wind, rain and abrasion may all affect the actual performance of bug repellents.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS TESTED ON ANIMALS?
Our products are not tested on animals. Independent labs test our repellent products for repellency against mosquitoes and ticks (arthropods) so that we can assess the efficacy of the products. During these tests, substrates are sprayed with our products and live ticks and/or mosquitoes are used to determine if they avoid or are repelled by the area sprayed with the formula. No insects or arthropods are harmed or killed during testing.
HAS YOUR PRODUCT BEEN TESTED?
Our bug repellents have been tested by an independent lab for efficacy against mosquitoes, gnats and biting flies. Test results concluded that our repellents have equivalent efficacy to brands with up to 5% DEET.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR PRODUCT?
Bug Protector products have a shelf life of three years.
