The results obtained (for Bug Bam mosquito repelling grids) are excellent for an area repellent, in which reductions greater than 50% are regarded as substantial. Repellency approaching 90% is more typical of topical repellents.

A recently released study by Carroll-Loye Biological Research reveals that Bug Bam all natural mosquito repelling grids repel mosquitoes at a rate matched only by topical repellants. According to the test report released on April 22, 2008, "The results obtained (for Bug Bam mosquito repelling grids) are excellent for an area repellent, in which reductions greater than 50% are regarded as substantial. Repellency approaching 90% is more typical of topical repellents."
According to Joseph Symond, Bug Bam's inventor and President, "These test results prove that consumers have viable options to conventional toxic repellants. In essence what the report says is that in harsh conditions, our all natural products will protect multiple people in a 20 foot vicinity to the Bug Bam grid - even up to 100 hours."
As death and affliction from mosquito transmitted diseases such as West Nile Virus, Malaria, Dengue Fever and Yellow Fever continue to spread across the globe, consumers and humanitarian organizations are actively looking for convenient, safe mosquito protection. According to a Health Styles report released by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Porter Novelli (a social marketing firm), less than 40% of American's use insect repellant when they should. CDC's Emily Zielinski-Gutierrez says that most consumers don't find it convenient to put liquid repellent on, claiming that they forget to apply it or forget to take it with them.
"With deaths from mosquito transmitted diseases on the rise all over the world, Bug Bam mosquito-repelling products safely, effectively and conveniently alleviate the risks of enjoying the outdoors. You just place a grid in your outdoor space or a wrist band on you or your children and forget about re-application for up to 100 hours" states Symond. "Our proprietary blend of all-natural, non-toxic EPA/FDA approved ingredients is impregnated into recyclable plastic, eliminating the need for liquid repellants or patches that can only be used once. Using only 100% natural ingredients, Bug Bam is the leading natural insect repelling brand on the market. These results from Carroll Loye Biological research prove that consumers have a viable and safer alternative to DEET based repellants."
