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.
