What’s New with Bite-Lite Natural Mosquito Candles?

With 2020 production delays behind us due to Covid shutdowns last March, we at Bite-Lite® are excited to introduce our three new natural mosquito repellent candles for 2021.

We have been busy during the off season designing new vessels and wicks with our new U.S. candle manufacturer.   We hope you will be as excited as we are to bring in a new  tin candle that is larger than our previous tin.   We  have also created a new cylinder candle with two wicks that is more elegant and taller than our previous 3 wicks.   We are also bringing back our votives which we first manufactured in China and offered between 2011-2014, but until now we have not been able to produce it here in the U.S.  The new votive box will contain 6 votives.   And to complete our  2021 lineup, we will continue to offer our  U.S. made natural mosquito repellent Pint Jar candle, which has been a mainstay of our candle collection since 2014.    

No matter which mosquito candle strikes your fancy, all of our mosquito candles continue to feature our  proprietary and scientifically proven  Cloak and Scatter® technology with the highest percentage of active ingredients on the market (nearly 7 percent).    To repel mosquitoes, our natural formula of spearmint and lemongrass oils releases a fragrant scent into the air without the smoke or soot you experience when lighting regular citronella candles.  All of our candles are made here in the U.S. with premium soy wax containing 100% soybean oil wax. .  

We hope you will enjoying selecting the perfect mosquito for your backyard patio, picnic, and any other special outdoor event where mosquitoes are a nuisance.  

For best results, set at least two to three natural mosquito repellent candles around the area you want to protect.   Light the cotton wicks of your natural mosquito candle 20 to 30 minutes before sitting outside; this practice will begin the release of our active repellent ingredients from the interior pool of hot wax.   Ideal placement is at  ground level.  DEET free.

Not all natural mosquito candle repellents are created equal!

When searching for a NATURAL solution to reduce mosquito bites, be aware that not all natural repellent products are created equal!

All insect control products, including mosquito candles, are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). Whether the product is natural or not, mosquito repellents are classified as pesticides and manufacturers who are making claims that their products repel mosquitoes must include on their label either a federal registration number or language that indicates that the product is exempt from federal registration.  Without these labels, pesticide products cannot be legally sold in the states.

At Bite-Lite®, we are proud of the fact that we have always complied with federal and state regulations. Our mosquito repellent candles contain both active and inert ingredients of natural materials which meet the EPA’s criteria exempting them from federal registration.  As required by law, Bite-Lite® also registers its natural mosquito candles in the individual states where our candles are sold and where registrations are required for “EPA exempt” products. These registrations must be renewed annually for each product in order for that repellent product to be sold legally in that state. In addition, each state requires strict guidelines on what ingredients and percentages must be on the labels. Bite Lite® has taken the necessary extra steps of registering its natural mosquito repellent candles correctly, and can be legally sold in the U.S. as a 25(b) product.

The states that Bite-Lite candles are currently registered and are available for sale are:  California, Colorado, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bite-Lite® Has A New Candle Label Design

In addition to offering new candle vessels in 2021, we were inspired during the preseason to design new labels for our three new candles — the cylinder, votive, and tin.     We hope you are in love with them as much as we are!    

Our new labels have been designed with elegance and class in mind.  They have a simple and clean look, with a more neutral color palette to help enhance any decor.    

If you not quite ready to make the change, our 12 ounce natural mosquito repellent pints as well as our smaller 3.5 ounce  tin candles will still be available for purchase with our older labels until supplies last. 

But if you are ready, our new labels have a sophistication that will serve well at either a fancy event or just a barbeque.    For those who simply like the classiness of simple glass, our pint and cylinder candle labels have low tack glue that will easily peel off from the vessel!  

We would love your feedback about our new Bite-Lite natural mosquito repellent candle labels!  

 

 

New Bite-Lit® Natural Mosquito Repellent Tin Mosquito Candle Is 2.5 oz. Bigger

This year, Bite-Lite® has upped its game and redesigned its Natural Mosquito Repellent Tin Candle with more wax and a larger wick.  Our first USA made natural mosquito repellent Tin candle in 2013 was in a sturdy 3.5 ounce metal container and had a 20 hour burn time. The ever-popular natural mosquito repellent Tin candle has now been upgraded to  6 ounces.  The new size adds longer protection against unwanted pesky mosquitos and repels for up to 30 hours!   

Our  natural mosquito repellent Tin candle features the same reliable Cloak and Scatter® technology  that is blended in 100 percent soybean wax oil and that has been proven quite effective in repelling mosquitoes while smelling great at the same time!  Most importantly, our natural mosquito candle contains the highest active ingredients of  lemongrass and spearmint oil on the market, nearly 7 percent. 

Whether you are camping, fishing, backpacking, or just having a picnic in the park or at your backyard patio, our rugged natural mosquito Tin candle is perfect for easy transport and storage with a convenient metal lid.

For best results, light the lead free cotton wick 20- 30 minutes before sitting outside; this practice allows the active ingredients of natural oils  to begin releasing into the air from the interior pool of hot wax. While evaporating, these oils will fill the air with a pleasant lemony scent.  Unlike regular citronella candles, Bite-Lite® mosquito candles will not ruin your outdoor event with smoke or soot  while repelling mosquitoes.   For best results, use 2-3 candles placed 3-6 apart. Ideal placement is at ground level. DEET free.

Bite-Lite Brings Back Its Popular Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles

Back by popular demand in 2021!  Bite-Lite® first introduced its Natural Mosquito Repellent Votives to the market in 2011 with paraffin wax and production in China.  Our new U.S. candle manufacturer has risen to the occasion and designed our beloved votive candles with 100 percent soybean wax oil. 

The new  Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Votive Candle will now come in a 6 pack chipboard box.     Using your favorite cup holder, each votive will provide area protection up to 16 hours each.  Don’t let the size of these lightweight natural mosquito repellent candles fool you!  They are packed with the same great scent and the same active ingredients of  spearmint and lemongrass oils (nearly 7 %) as our larger Bite-Lite® candles while repelling biting mosquitoes as effectively.  Our patent pending Cloak and Scatter® technology has been proven to protect you based on field testing in the Florida swamps.   To learn more about our Repellency Evaluation, click here. 

Our Votive mosquito candles are perfect as a gift or for your own patio, deck, picnic, and other special outdoor events where mosquitos are present and smoke and bites are unwanted.  

Scientifically designed and tested, the active ingredients in our proprietary Cloak and Scatter® technology get released into the air without the smoke and soot of regular citronella candles.

For best results, light 20-30 minutes before you sit outdoors in order for the hot pool of wax to form and begin releasing the fragrance into the air.   Set all six candles about 3-6 feet apart around the area you wish to protect. Ideal placement is at ground level. Lead free cotton wicks. DEET free. 

New Bite-Lite Natural Mosquito Repellent Cylinder Candle Has 2 Wicks

Bite-Lite® is excited to present its new Natural Mosquito Repellent Cylinder Candle to open the mosquito season and help you repel biting mosquitoes!

Our 20 ounce Cylinder Candle has two lead free cotton wicks that will repel up to 65 hours.   If we do say so ourselves, it is an elegant addition to any outdoor table and a MUST HAVE for special events such as outdoor weddings and other stylish al fresco dining events where décor matters and mosquitoes may be present! 

The active ingredients of lemongrass and spearmint oils will add a wonderful fragrance to your outdoor sitting area.  Most importantly, our  fragrance contains the highest percentage of natural oils on the market, nearly 7 %, and has been field tested so we know it works.   To learn about our Repellency Evaluation, click here.   The double wicks are set in 100 percent soybean oil wax, and will  ensure that the cylinder wax will melt evenly to the edge of the glass vessel in order to obtain the fragrant wax pool for repellency to begin.  

For best results, set at least two to three natural mosquito repellent candles around the area you want to protect. We recommend you position your candles at ground level where mosquitoes begin biting, first at your ankles. Light the wicks of your natural mosquito candle about 20 minutes before sitting outside to begin releasing the active repellent ingredients from the interior pool of hot wax; this practice will begin to protect your area with our Cloak and Scatter technology.  

We hope you will find that this new natural mosquito candle is a perfect complement to any outdoor seating, and you will enjoy it as much as we loved creating it.   Should your outdoor event call for a more decorative look, our use of a low tack glue will allow you to peel off the side label of your mosquito candle.  U.S. Made. Deet free.
