Our Mission

Bite-Lite LLC is a Connecticut based family business founded in 2010 to develop and market the best and most effective natural mosquito repellent candles and other natural insect repellent and attractant products that are inspired by nature.  It is committed to serving the public’s continuing needs for pest management and control.

Our first launched products were great smelling and Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles that our scientists were inspired to create after observing monkeys at a Florida sanctuary using lemons and limes on their fur as natural repellents.   (See the monkey story video to learn more.)  After introducing our soy wax candles to the same monkeys and testing the efficacy of our proprietary blend of natural lemongrass and spearmint essential oils in the Florida Swamps in 2011, Bite-Lite® went into production with its first four natural mosquito repellent candles made in China.

In 2013, Bite-Lite® introduced its first American made premium soy wax mosquito Tin candle, and in 2014, we added two new U.S.A. made natural mosquito repellent candles to our soy wax collection-   Pint Jar and Mini Jar mosquito candles, both in glass containers.

The science behind our natural mosquito repellent candles lies in Cloak & Scatter® technology.   This chemistry originated at Bedoukian Research, Inc. ("Bedoukian"), a privately owned family run company located in Danbury, Connecticut, that has devoted its more than four decades in business to creating both insect semiochemicals and aroma and flavor chemicals.   (Visit and to learn more.)    Whether Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles are made in China or the United States, their active ingredients are sourced, blended, and tested by Bedoukian.

In July 2014, Bite-Lite® added a new nature inspired insect control product to its arsenal against biting insects-- the H-Trap Professional Horse Fly Control System.   Designed in the Netherlands by Alcochem Hygiene (, the H-Trap uses nature to trick and trap the female horse fly.  Bite-Lite is the exclusive U.S. distributor, and these new horse fly traps  first reached retailers’ shelves in the spring of 2015.   In April, 2016, the online equine retailer SmartPak ( introduced the H-Trap horse fly control system to its insect control category.  

In April 2016, we began distributing a new modern indoor insect light trap, also designed in Europe, to the United States.
