Natural Mosquito Repellents

Consider natural mosquito repellents before spraying yourself or your children with DEET. Here are some non-toxic, DEET-free alternative natural insect repellent options safe for your whole family—and the environment.

 

Z-Tablets are infused with all natural ingredients that repel mosquitoes and other insects. They are DEET-free and gradually release natural bug repelling ingredients—surrounding you with an invisible 6 foot wide zone of protection. Safe for children.

Both the Z-Clip and Z-Band come with replacement tablets.
