Say goodbye to mosquitoes, ticks, black flies, no-see-ums, chiggers and more!

Nothing ruins your time in the great outdoors like bug bites. And increasingly, insects are more than just pests; they also carry debilitating disease.

Fueled by catnip oil, scientifically proven 10x more effective than dangerous DEET, lifestings also contains a highly effective anti-tick agent. Another revolutionary product from the makers of lifestinks.

Does a FANTASTIC JOB! It repelled the mosquitoes better than the 70% DEET bug-spray did. It worked in the woods while camping and I usually attract them.

It really works for me, and I am a mosquito magnet. For me to be outside without dozens of bites is outstanding. It has the added bonus of smelling lovely. I was actually complemented on it by people who didn't know it was a repellent.

I love this product.

The product does keep mosquitoes from biting. It has a pleasant smell and texture.

I used the spray while on a fishing trip in Upper Michigan and it worked great.

We have been so pleased with this lotion. It's super light and actually smells terrific. We are thankful for an effective alternative to DEET.

Absolutely loved the bug repellant. We have a place deep in the North Woods. Couldn't believe it worked better than OFF.

Getting used to the deodorants in the trial pack. I think they’re going to work for me. Looking forward to being outside more and testing the life stings products!

Love this product!

This bug repellent is amazing! Effective and is safe and smells great. My kids love putting it on.

Works like a charm!

I've been using LifeStings for...I'm not sure how long but a long time. I love that it is more effective than deet and has no yucky stuff. I buy a fresh batch every year and sometimes have to purchase twice in a season because everyone in our family loves it.

Genuine Care

Thank you for the prompt delivery of my Life Stinks refill and Life Stings new container. Your products work so well against ordor and the bug are repelled with a clean feel on my skin. Thank you for working out the ingredients in your products as they agree with me with strong results.
