How BugZing Works

Confuse the Mosquito

Mosquitoes detect their prey from long distances by homing in on exhaled carbon dioxide. They are also attracted to the 50+ other chemical odors associated with humans. When they get close mosquitoes rely on infrared and color vision to find a desirable location to feed.

BugZing™ cloaks you in a confusion of scent that is barely detectible to you. This cloaking action means mosquitoes either don’t recognize you as prey, or, they can’t figure out where to land to feed. All other products on the market work the same way but BugZing is the best mosquito repellent because we use a combination of DEET and Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus that is not applied directly to the skin, so it is safer to use, for a wider variety of applications.

Why BugZing is a Different Kind of Wearable Band

BugZing™ isn’t actually just a wearable band. It is the best mosquito repellent because it can be clipped on, tied on, and used with or without a band. 

The difference with BugZing™ is that there is no degradation of the scent delivery. All the competing band-type products are either infused with a botanical repellent, or employ some kind of absorbent that can be re-infused with botanical fragrance. There will be an intense initial burst of scent and then continual degradation. While there is the perception that botanical repellents are safer because they are “natural”, their effectiveness declines rapidly, which does not make it the best mosquito repellent choice. So, if your goal is protection from mosquitoes which may carry dangerous diseases is an ineffective botanical really “safer”? Curious about how to use BugZing™? Take a look at the many ways to use BugZing™ here. 

DEET has been proven over decades as the most effective repellent available.  However, DEET is a strong chemical and many people don’t feel comfortable rubbing it on their skin where it will be absorbed into the body. Read the story of a memorable experience BugZing™ inventor, Robert Hockaday had with DEET. As the best mosquito repellent, BugZing™ employs a synergistic combination of DEET and Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus which is “breathed” consistently from an ampoule with a patented membrane. In addition, the amount of DEET contained in BugZing™—that will be released over 800 hours—is the recommended amount for one application directly on the skin.
