    I’ve been using this repellent for a couple years now and I love it so much! It really is very effective and a little goes a very long way. We just use a dab on the back of the arms, back of the calves, and back of the neck and never have a problem with getting bit. The smell is a bit strong but not unpleasant at all. I highly recommend this product!

    I hate leaving bad reviews, but I just did not see a difference while using pest aside during the summer of 2020. I put it on myself and my kids during the wet season back in July and August, and was extremely disappointed. I put it on our faces, legs, feet, arms etc and it seemed as if the bugs were MORE attracted to us! I really wish it worked for us, because it is so hard to find a natural bug spray that does not have all of those added ingredients to it. I also did not like the smell, and I would constantly smell it days later, just like I do when I smell some fragrance. It wasn’t a bad smell necessarily, but it just didn’t go well with my senses, I guess.

    I’ve used this whenever we remember and I can say that the days we didn’t use this, we were bitten up! I don’t even have to spread all over, we typically placed at ankles, wrists, and neck and won’t have a single bite at the end of the day!

  4. Emilie (verified owner)

    We used this for the first time this summer in the middle of nowhere North Carolina backwoods on a very hot day. We applied it to our arms and legs and back of neck. No bugs, no ticks, no bites anywhere! Very pleased and will be buying each time the weather turns warm!

    Pest Aside has been the best thing for my youngest! Mosquitos were consistently biting him until I got Pest Aside, now he wears it every time we go out and no more bites

    I have had great luck with this bug repellent. It smells so good and clean, and goes on smoothly and spreads easily on the skin. I feel comfortable using it on my family, and it has actually been effective against bugs!

  7. Nichole Wilson (verified owner)

    I love the scent of this! Smells so much better than other things. It also works very well. I don’t usually get many bug bites, but my husband is a bug magnet! He has been very happy with this and that it doesn’t have any of the toxic junk in it!

  8. Meg (verified owner)

    SO happy to have found a safe AND effective natural bug remedy. I love that this formula includes neem, as I haven’t found that in others I’ve tried and I think it is key to the effectiveness of this stick. The scent is strong, but it’s so comforting to know that it’s all natural oils. I’ll definitely be keeping this on hand in the summers!

    I am so so so happy to have found an all natural bug deterrent that actually works! No bug bites this year as long as I remembered to use it! Love the scent too which we have had several loads of laundry come out smelling like citronella all summer! Thanks for making a safe alternative!

  10. Grace S. (verified owner)

    I have tried multiple deet- and toxin-free bug repellents and NONE of them have worked EXCEPT this one. Whenever I tried it I was seriously shocked. Mosquitoes love me. Idk if it’s blood type or what exactly attracts them to certain people and not others, but man, I’m still in awe of how well this worked (because tbh I didn’t expect it to). You will not regret this purchase!!
