Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! I have been on the lookout for DEET-free insect repellents for a while. So when I came across this product I decided to give it a try, and I'm so glad I did! I am normally a favorite amongst mosquitoes, and wearing this significantly decreased the number of bites. It makes you smell like a citronella candle, and leaves no sticky residue on your skin. (side note: it is pure oil, so you have to rub it in) I am incredibly satisfied and will purchase more in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trusted but odorous I'm glad the spray is more of a spray than the pump of oil it used to be. It is still very oily, I would like more of a mist. But I just rub it in like a cricket. Also it has a very strong citronella scent. This is ok with me, as long as these Ohio River Valley uber-mosquitoes stay away. Also my 3 year old nephew is allergic to the other bug sprays, so this is a safer option. I love Burt's Bees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS! Best repellent ever! Was so disappointed to see it isn't available online as I cannot find it anywhere and am running low. My boys and I use this with no allergic reactions and I use it on our almost 1 year old mini golden doodles as well. I have been using it on the pups since they were 9 weeks with no allergic reactions whatsoever. Smells wonderful and really does a great job keeping the bugs away!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product on the Market for bugs I found this item in Buffalo, Wyoming in a cute little gift and novelty shop many years ago. I swear by this item, it is the best for keeping all flying and biting insects away from me and my HORSE. Yes...I do put it on my horses face and ears...he likes the smell too. I buy this from the Burt's Bees home page, because it is hard to find in Vermont on the store shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Product Grandchildren are able to play in the grass without having any bug bites when they come in. We also use it on the dogs when walking in wooded area or marshy fields and they are not effected by bug bites. The fragrance is wonderful. This is the only repellent I have used that does what it says it will do. I have recommended the product to friends and family and those who use it are just at pleased as I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved me this summer I had small brown spiders in my apartment that bit me many times. I ordered this product and purchased 3 cans. I put it on me morning and night and after I started putting the repellent on the bites stopped. I am so grateful that this product worked so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from please bring it back!!!!! our family loved this product. it worked against Midwestern mosquitos and we felt safe using it on ourselves and our children. the only problem we ever had was that the bottle leaked if it fell over, but we can put up with something like that for such an exceptional product. PLEASE DON'T LEAVE US FEELING TRAPPED IN OUR HOME DURING MOSQUITO SEASON!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This product works great! I never get bit when wearing it & it does not wreak of chemicals. One Note: After spraying, make sure to rub it into your skin. While this makes your hands a bit oily, it ensures that the product gets evenly spread everywhere. LOVE THIS STUFF!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked in the Amazon I recently spent a month working in, literally, the middle of the Amazon. To give you an idea of how remote: the nearest town was two hours away from our site. I was living on a floating house on the river, next to the thick vegetation of the flooded forest. Know what that means? A ha-yuge number of multiple species of mosquitos. Insect repellent is a necessity, especially because some of those crazy things carry serious diseases in that area. Most of my coworkers were using Off and other harsh products that contain high percentages of deet and other nasty chemicals. I stuck with my BB Herbal Insect Repellent and not only did it repel most of the mosquitos (it is nearly impossible to repel all mosquitos there; they are just vicious), but I also love the smell, strong as it is. Soooooo much better than the traditional chemically stuff. So, I did suffer a few bites (that's why four stars instead of five), but hey, I was in the middle of the rainforest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work so well I put the insect repellent on and was immediately attacked by mosquitoes and left with 5 bites on my legs. It's disappointing because I love Burt's Bees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product Not only has this product kept the bugs at bay, when I do not use it and get bit, I apply it right away and it relieves the itching and reduces the welt. I gave a bottle to a friend who is highly reactive to bug bites and she couldn't believe how well it kept the bugs away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Even wearing pants and long sleeves out in the woods, I was getting bit on my ankles and around my waits. I started using this, and Viola! No more bites! More effective against gnats and mosquitos than ticks, but it does help against them too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad against bees This product protects poorly against bees--and even seems to attract them! **Not sure how this product works against other pests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This kills bugs that get in your house! I bought this to use as a spider repellent in my apartment, because I heard that essential oils are good for that, and I live near woods and have lots of spiders on my outdoor stairwell because of the security light (which attracts other bugs that I don't want in my house). I can't confirm with certainty that this repels all insects immediately, but I have noticed fewer live bugs inside my apartment than before I started using it. But I have definitely been noticing the dead bugs, especially around the areas where I spread the oil (my windows and the edges of my walls). I've sprayed the oil on live spiders that have gotten in the apartment, and it does slow them down but doesn't immediately kill them. But apparently the bugs that come into contact with it eventually die. I just now found one of the house centipedes that keep getting into my closet somehow, and it was curled up dead on my floor (and it's been at least two or three weeks since I last sprayed any oil in there). I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to bug-proof their home without all the expensive chemicals. I spray it on an old washcloth and wipe it around the edges of my windows and doors. Just get some airflow going after you apply it, because the oils smell pretty strong. And be careful washing anything it gets on: I've noticed oil stains on some of my shirts, which probably went through the washer after the oily cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff I bought this product for my husband, bugs love him! This is the only insect repellent that truly works...Here in Indiana we have those pesty flying,biting gnat like flies. When they bite you know it...ouch! They hate this stuff, so we use our share in the spring and summer time. Thank you Burt's Bees!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works from what I see. Bought this because I already got 4 mosquito bites and march isnt over yet. So i guess the mosquitoes are out early this year. I bought this for the first time and tried it, I have to say that it works, I love the oil application also because I have somewhat dry skin on my legs, so thats a bonus! although I don't know why but some other bugs were flying around my head I think beacuse I was sweating, (maybe gnats, idk) but at least I didn't get bit by any bugs, including mosquitoes, I will continue to use this product. Thanks burts bees!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected This product seemed to work ok at repelling mosquitos, but I'm not quite sure, because I was too busy swatting at other bugs to notice. As soon as I put this product on my kids and got us all outside, bees began to swarm around us! Within minutes, we must have had all the bees in the neighborhood surrounding our heads. They were extremely attracted to the scent of this product, although it does have a nice, lemony smell. I love, love, love every BB's product I've tried, but this one didn't cut it, unfortunately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! i love the smell of eucalyptus and lemongrass. i can literally put this stuff on and the bugs swarming around me will try to find anywhere to land but on the areas where i put the stuff. Trust me...i currently am living in the Delta of Arkansas where the 'skeeters can tote you off. i have dry skin, so i love the oil application. i rub it in and my skin gets supersoft and i get the bug repellent benefit, too!!!! even my husband is hooked on it and we use it on our great pyrnees and cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only One We were looking for a natural bug spray for us and our two boys and decided to give this a try. We have not used anything else since. This stuff works! It is the only one we will ever buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Traveling I have been using Bert's insect repellent for years and it has always worked for me. I'm a traveler and have spend many summers in humid, sandy beaches such as Costa Rica, Honduras and Belize. Once I rub the yummy smelling product on, I'm not bite by any bugs - big or small!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bee Best! This product is the best insect repellant I have EVER used. When bugs learn of my whereabouts, they swarm tauntingly, unforgivingly, recklessly around me. The other day I had to leave a golf course because the bug bites were distractingly inchy to the point of abuse. I couldn't play. Using this product, I feel as shielded as if I wore a coat of armor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly on My Saint Bernard I needed something natural and safe to keep the summertime flies off of my dog. I'm so tired of the flies biting her ears and making them bleed. It breaks my heart. Plus, I don't want to put chemicals or DEET on her. I did some research and someone recommended using Burt's Bees to keep the flies off of horses and dogs, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did. Boy, those flies split instantly! It was funny to watch. Thanks, Burt's Bees!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I started using this after giving birth to my first child. I wanted something without deet. It works wonderful and smells fantastic. Since it is all natural I don't mind putting it on my son and offering it to my friends to put on their children. It has become a hit at my in laws camp where there are a ton of black flies and mosquitoes. Everyone uses it. The only downside is I feel that you need to reapply it more often than other DEET bugsprays.
