      Bug Band - Insect Repellent Extended Release Geraniol Spray Lotion - 6 oz.

      Perfect for when you need more heavy-duty protection for an extended period of time, BugBand time-release spray lotion does not contain any propellants, but relies on a highly effective metered pump sprayer to dispense a fine mist over the area to be treated. By spraying the BugBand liquid directly on clothing or skin, the Geraniol vapors form a protective barrier to deter blood-sucking insects from biting. It is ideal for uses around the ankles, wrist or neck, where insects tend to invade clothing. A small amount (.1%) of Geraniol oil is used to help the spray stick the skin and release over long periods of time. Use once for hours of insect protection.

      What is Geraniol?
      Geraniol, the active ingredient in BugBand insect repelling products, is a natural essential oil derived from geraniums. When Geraniol is exclusively formulated with other minimum risk or food-grade ingredients, the resulting insect repellent products are not regulated pesticides when they meet federally established criteria.

      Geraniol is a biodegradable ingredient that is safe to use and safe for the environment. There is no known toxicity to animals or wildlife.

      How does Geraniol Repel Insects?
      Geraniol has a relatively high vapor pressure and gives off a dilute vapor into the air stream which acts as an area repellent. This helps repel insects before they land. The natural tendency of Geraniol to evaporate makes it work as the active ingredient in wristbands, plastic beads, and other BugBand repellent products. It also helps to improve the efficacy of liquid spray Geraniol BugBand repellents.

      DEET is a Chemical Pesticide.
      DEET is a synthetic, manufactured chemical that is also known to repel insects. When formulated with any ingredient, even tap water, it is required to be registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as a pesticide. The National Pesticide Telecommunications Network reports that DEET does not readily degrade in the environment and has a moderate potential to move through soil and into groundwater. It is slightly toxic to fish, birds and aquatic invertebrates.

      Plastic, Rubber and Paint.
      DEET is a very good solvent and will melt or cause damage to plastic, rubber and paint. Things like acrylic sunglasses, fishing line, watch crystals, finishes on firearms, paint on trucks, or similar materials can be damaged or destroyed if subjected to DEET-based products.

      Flammability
      Some DEET-based products have been found to be flammable, and many manufacturers of flame-retardant garments have issued warnings to their users not to use DEET-based repellents while wearing these flame retardant suits.

      BugBand is Versatile and Easy to Use.
      The BugBand products are safe to use on people or with equipment and do not have the flammability issue. In fact, products like the wristband don't even need to be worn with direct skin contact. Many users put them on belt loops, baby strollers, shoelaces or hat bands and find them to be highly effective when used in this manner.

      BugBand is the Next Level of Insect Protection!
      They buzz. They bite. From mosquitoes and horn flies to gnats and no-see-ums, insects are far more than just pesky inconveniences. Leaving yourself and your family unprotected against blood-feeding bugs simply isn’t an option. 

      Introducing the next generation of protection. BugBand™ products are a proven, effective alternative to synthetic traditional pesticides, protecting children and adults from biting insects while avoiding the risks associated with irritating chemicals. BugBand is not only a safer choice, it’s more effective. Geraniol, the plant-based active ingredient in BugBand, is a proven repellent.

      BugBand insect repellent is available in several forms, including wristbands (for everyday use) and pump spray and towelettes (for heavier-duty applications), as well as a variety of commercial applications. Whether you’re gardening, playing in the backyard, picnicking, hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, golfing, or working outdoors – including everyone from police and fire personnel to road, utility and lawn-care crews, to employees at refining plants – BugBand’s pleasant-scented Geraniol insect repellent vapors create an invisible shield that protects you from pests.
