Field Studies

Studies conducted at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, showed that the Bite Blocker™ product gave more than 97% protection against mosquitoes under field conditions, even 3.5 hours after application. During the same period, a 6.65% DEET-based spray afforded 86% protection, and Avon Skin-So-Soft citronella-based repellent gave only 40% protection. Bite Blocker™ is a proven product, and it's all-natural; safe for you, safe for your family, and safe for the environment

New formulations tested for up to 4-8 hours efficacy.

Bite Blocker™ more effective than DEET 

Studies at the University of Guelph proves Bite Blocker is more effective than DEET.  Higher concentrations of DEET do not work better only longer with the risk of absorbing more DEET into the body which may be toxic.  Re-applying DEET frequently is not advised by Health Officials due to the toxic effects that may occur.  Bite Blocker can be re-applied without the risk of these toxic effects; therefore, Bite Blocker is more effective and safer than any concentration of DEET when re-applied every three hours.
