FAQ

Will Bug Bam prevent any disease?
No. We do not guarantee, nor warrant that Bug Bam will prevent or cure any disease.
Will Bug Bam work for me? 

NO INSECT REPELLENT IS 100% GUARANTEED TO WORK, AND NONE WILL WORK 100% OF THE TIME FOR 100% OF THE POPULATION. It's just scientifically and biologically impossible, even with the strongest DEET products. 

The American Journal of Medicine has even tested the most popular DEET products, and found those to fall short of their advertised efficacy.

Like any other repellent on the market, Bug Bam will help repel Mosquitoes for UP TO 95% of users. This is the typical, industry statistic for repellents (even those with DEET). The 5%+ accounts for people who have a body chemistry that makes them irresistible to bugs no matter what repellent they try. If you’re one who finds that even DEET won’t work for you, then Bug Bam probably won’t help.

Are Bug Bam products EPA approved?
We warrant that our products qualify for exemption from EPA registration under the FIFRA act.
How does Bug Bam work?

Each Bug Bam product helps camouflage the user from Mosquitoes for up to 100-hours by emitting an ‘aura’ of all natural, plant-based essential oils. This 100% natural and non-toxic scent is strong enough to mask the odors we (Co2 and other gases and odors emitted by humans and animals) emit that attract mosquitoes and other flying biting insects, effectively making the wearer smell like a plant and completely invisible to mosquitoes and other flying, biting bugs!. Better than a regular repellent, without any mess or hazards, Bug Bam helps stop the bugs from wanting to bite you. 

Why do Mosquitoes still land on me?

Mosquitoes are very weak flyers. If they've been buzzing around long enough, they will look for any place to land and rest. Even during efficacy testing. On occasion, that place might be you. Dark clothing is particularly appealing, as they can 'hide' as they rest. Light clothing is recommended and will help prevent landings.

What testing has Bug Bam done?

Bug Bam is the ONLY range of, solid, all-natural (active ingredients) bug repellents with the scientific evidence proving efficacy of the actual finished product! Bug Bam is also 100% manufactured in the USA. Bug Bam is the only company in our industry who can make such a claim.

The efficacy of Bug Bam's proprietary formulation in the Bug Bam products has been proven in both repelling mosquitoes, and preventing/reducing bites for up to 100-hours.

Additionally, Bug Bam products also undergo real-world testing every day, with many of our customers reporting in from around the world on a regular basis from suburban households to exotic locales such as Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Brazil (the Amazon Jungle) and Papua New Guinea (the Kokoda Trail)! We use all of this information to improve our products constantly.

The raw, proprietary Bug Bam formulation has been tested and found to be minimal irritant to the eyes, and non-irritant to the skin. In this case, we test the raw liquid formula, so as to ensure even our undiluted materials are safe before being diluted into our synthetic latex material (which only makes them safer).

And we never, ever test our products on animals.

What are Bug Bam products made of?

Bug Bam's active ingredients are made of EPA compliant/FDA GRAS, 100% natural, food-grade essential oils impregnated into a band, grid or tag made of an EPA/FDA compliant material.

Neither the color nor the material we use has any repellency. In their efforts to marginilize FIFRA 25(b) products like Bug Bam, the US EPA claim that where ingredients embedded into a material, that material is considered an 'ingredient' also, however, reality is, the material is merely a ‘vessel’ for carrying our proprietary, 100% natural repelling formula (scent), much like the bottle for a spray - which the EPA does not care about.

The material does not disspiate as the formulation does, and once the repellent is gone, the 'container' (bottle, wipe, band, grid or pet tag) can be disposed of/recycled.

Our 'inert' material in the band, grid and pet tag, is actually a food-grade ‘synthetic latex‘ which was developed and patented as an alternative to natural latex to help allergy sufferers allergic to natural latex.

Is DEET dangerous?

DEET was designed for direct application to people’s skin to repel insects. After it was developed by the U.S. Army in 1946, DEET was registered for use by the general public in 1957. 

While proven effective, we recommend to only use DEET as a last resort, and if this is the case, a 50% concentration will suffice as there is no added benefit to higher concentrations; just increased risk of an adverse reaction. DEET ‘melts’ plastics and synthetic fibres, so it is not good for your skin and can enter the bloodstrem in this manner. Indeed, there are numerous instances of skin scarring when using this neurotoxin especially for women and children over prolonged periods.

DEET should never be used on children under 2-months of age.

The American Journal of Tropical Medicine reports in a test on pregnant women using DEET in their second and third trimesters, DEET was found in 8% of cord blood samples, indicating that it crossed the placenta.

Many holidaymakers mistakenly attribute DEET poisoning symptoms for those of food poisoning!

And most alarmingly, DEET has been found in water reservoirs in Chicago, after having washed off the skin of swimmers, making its way into the drinking water in peoples homes.

How does Bug Bam compare to other ‘natural’ repellents?

When comparing other ‘natural 'or 'naturally derived' repellents with Bug Bam, here is what to consider:

1) Bug Bam is 100% Made in USA using only the highest quality, essential oil ingredients.

2) Bug Bam products can support efficacy of the finished product actually being effective, and used in the envrionment for which it is designed. 

2) Bug Bam has rapidly become one of the most trusted global brands in naturally formulated bug repellents. Other natural repelling products have no brand support, no reputation, and almost all are sourced and custom branded in  China.

3) As a company, all we do are Bug Bam repelling products. That’s it, 24/7. We don't make cleaning supplies, air fresheners, or anything else. Which is why we’re the best at what we do.

4) The bottom line is Bug Bam is the original, and still the best range of natural, mosquito repellents.

Is Bug Bam safe?

Used as directed, Bug Bam products are safe and easy to use.

If you have severe allergies to the fragrance of essential oils, consult your Doctor first.

How long does Bug Bam last?

Bug Bam products are effective for as long as the scent continues to be strong. In most cases this will be up to 100-hours. The warmer the weather, the shorter the lifespan and the cooler the weather the longer the lifespan. Scent is released faster in heat. Storing the product in its re-sealable pack when not in use will extend the lifespan. The shelf life is up to 2-years if stored in a cool, dry place.

Is Bug Bam suitable for hunting? Especially animals that detect human or unusual scents?

Absolutely! Think about it. So far you’ve been using a man-made synthetic repellent, or a heated pad of chemical repellent in an effort to both keep away the bugs and ‘hope’ your intended prey doesn’t catch a whiff of it. But what is more likely to happen, is your target will pick up the ‘unusual’ synthetic scent and take off running. Remember, the animals you hunt live in the wilderness, with the scent of myriad trees, plants, bushes, flowers and the like surrounding them. And when it comes to smell, they’re smart! Don’t you think a chemical scent/odor/vapor is going to ring some alarm bells?? Bug Bam contains ONLY all natural plant scents that are strong enough to mask human scent from the incredible receptors of a Mosquito, and therefore strong enough to mask your scent from larger animals.

Oh, and before you douse yourself with the urine of your favorite prey to make yourself invisible from them (how that tradition began, we’ll never know), break out a Bug Bam (or two, or three) and give that a try first.

Smelling like a plant instead of ‘wild animal pee’ may just do the trick!
