Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by No Help I kept hoping this product would live up to the label. Tried it again yesterday, sprayed and after being outside only 10 minutes have 5 bites. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps the bugs away! This is one of the best natural bug sprays I have found. It is not full of harmful chemicals like Deet, and it actually keeps the bugs away. Try it, and you will see. July 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works I normally have a recipe for bug repellant that I make using essential oils and it works better than deet. Sometimes it is nice to have something on hand in case I don't have time to concoct my own. I did a comparison by spraying half my body with my home brand and the other side with Bug ban. Bug ban is almost as good. I would recommend to others who do not want to use toxic chemicals on their bodies. The only drawback with the natural products is that my dogs love the taste. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effect ,natural insect protection This easy to use spray is fairly effective in repelling insects for an hour or so at a time. I like the fragrance and light feel of the mist. June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Bites! First of all....it works. I have a neighbor with an old hot tub, and the cover has standing water on it almost all of the time. We have a serious mosquito issue here. The first time I used it it was near dusk, and I was out by the property line doing yard work. I noticed mosquitoes, they were out. Wasn't sure if I would have bites or not...but the next day....NOTHING! I was shocked. I totally expected to have at least a couple of bites. The other thing....I am not a fan of the smell of citronella. I really hate the smell of the candles. For some reason, I really like the smell of this spray. Maybe it is the lemon undertones, I don't know. Anyway, I have already placed an order for a second bottle, because as I said before...IT WORKS against mosquitoes! Not sure about other bugs, mosquitoes are all we have problems with. April 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works!!! All natural ... No harmful chemicals , and no bug bite!! Make sure you cover all exposed areas of body , and reapply often.. Happy with product !! Thank you .. Swanson August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strong Scent This spray seems to work fine, but my daughter feels the citronella scent is a little strong. She's still using it though. July 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Bug repellent My son is allergic to mosquitos and will swell up like a balloon when bitten. This a great, affordable and SAFE alternative to the many DEET based products on the market! July 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Its natural ! I thought it was great! It wasn't sticky or stinky. The spray bottle could use a little help but it works.The price could be a little cheaper but I think for an all natural product that works is great. March 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bug Ban Natural insect Repellent Fantastic - there is no bad ingredients. I wanted to make my own, but this is much easier. The scent is nice (mainly citronella and lemon scent), it leaves skin feeling clean, not sticky or greasy. Not one bite when I use it, although I need to reapply every few hours. The only thing I don't like about it is the spray applicator. Many times the liquid would get stuck and it won't spray evenly. Without this issue, the product would be perfect! June 5, 2012
