BugBand Bead Bag
BugBand Bead Bag
Usually Ships in 2 to 3 Business Days
BugBand Insect Repellent Bead Bags contain a high concentration of Geraniol, which is released slowly to form a protective vapor barrier in a given area. The highly concentrated plastic fragrance beads are packed in an air-flow bag made of nylon mesh, which contains the beads but allows air to pass freely.
Ideal for use in fan cabinets near food serving areas where sprays cannot be used or in air vents to disperse the vapors into a room (also cars, trucks or buses).
For window or wall air conditioners, attach to the center of clean air filter.
In autos, trucks, airplanes and buses, place bags under seats, in air circulating systems and in ashtrays.
At campsites, place the bags in tents and campers.
Place the bags on screened porches, patios and other outdoor enclosures.
Use around pet bedding areas and kennels and anywhere insect repelling is desired.
With its decades of experience developing odor-control products, EES, Inc., partnered with the University of Florida, Gainesville, which was undertaking a long-term study on the effectiveness of Geraniol as an insect repellent. EES is now the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of products using the patented technology under the BugBand brand.
DEET vs. Geraniol
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.
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.
