Watch How Buguard Works


Touch Active - Long-Lasting Repellency

Buguard uses Touch Active Technology™ which holds a blend of essential oils in thousands of very small containers called micro-containers. Micro-containers rupture from touch or friction which releases the essential oils and pleasant-smelling scent to repel insects. The micro-containers reduce the essential oils from evaporating and help control the release rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are essential oils?
Essential oils are oils of the plant from which they were extracted (such as citronella essential oil.) The oils capture the plant's scent and flavor, or "essence." Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

Are essential oils safe?
Yes. Essential oils are regarded as safe and free of adverse side-effects if used properly. The essential oils used in Buguard™ have an extremely high purity level. Typically, these essential oils do not cause allergic reactions, but if any allergic reaction occurs discontinue use immediately.

What essential oils are in Buguard?
Buguard is an aqueous mixture containing essential oils in micro-containers. Buguard™ uses a unique blend of six essential oils to create three seasonal repellents: Lemongrass, Citronella, Cedarwood, Rosemary, Geranium, and Thyme.

Which essential oils repel insects?
The microencapsulated essential oils used in Buguard™ are noted in published research to have effective insect repellent properties. As an example, citronella is used extensively in candles, torch oil, bracelets, and other insect repellent items.

How do I apply Buguard™?
Shake the container before use. To apply, spray Buguard™ directly onto outdoor furniture, decks, or other items in the outdoor living space.

How much Buguard™ do I need to use?
Apply Buguard™ as needed to help repel insects such as mosquitos. Insect repellency is dependent on many complex factors such as insect density.

How long does Buguard™ last long?
Our testing has shown it can last multiple months. Results may vary based on various elements such as environmental conditions.

How does Buguard™ last so long?
Buguard™ solution includes very small, inert containers (micro-containers), that have droplets of essential oil inside. These micro-containers are made through a process called microencapsulation. The micro-container ruptures from touch (Touch Active Technology™) or friction which releases the essential oil blend. Micro-containers reduce the evaporation of essential oils and control the release rate, thus extending the useful life of essential oil applied to furniture and outdoor living areas.

Can I apply Buguard™ to my outdoor plants and living space?
Yes. Buguard™ can be sprayed directly onto your furniture, plants, decks, and other items in outdoor living spaces.

What type of insects does Buguard™ repel?
Buguard™ uses unique blends of six essential oils. Geranium for mosquitos. Lemongrass for chiggers, fleas, flies, fruit flies, ticks, no-see-ums, and mosquitos. Citronella for fleas, mosquitos, gnats, moths, and ticks. Cedarwood for mosquitos, flies, silverfish, ants, fleas, mites, ticks, and lice. Thyme for ants, armyworms, aphids, moths, fleas, grasshoppers, ground beetles, and mosquitos. And lastly, Rosemary for moths, fruit flies, and mosquitos. Buguard™ is available in three unique blends for spring (Lemongrass dominant), summer (Citronella dominant), and fall (Cedarwood dominant). This allows a selection of the fragrance based on preference and what works best in different environments.


Disclaimer: Do not apply Buguard™ directly to pets. When used appropriately, Buguard™ is considered safe for pet and human exposure. Buguard™ cannot protect against all insects and insect bites.
