I’ve been using this wonderful product for 3 summers now and I won’t be without it! I spend a lot of time kayaking in a pond and up into a marsh, the mosquito and black flies can be intense! This product keeps me bug free and I can relax at the end of the night, knowing I don’t have harmful chemicals on my skin! I love the scent! A. R-B, Bideford, PE

“It works so well that I don’t go out during bug season without a spray bottle of BUG SCREEN in my pocket or in the glove compartment.”

D.D., Rock Barra, PE

“The main thing is this spray works and you aren’t putting nasty chemicals on your skin, the largest organ of your body, and having them be absorbed into your body through your pores. Safe protection inside and out from nasty mosquitoes.”

“Could not live without it in the garden and at the cottage.” C.T., Summerside.


“We live in a beautiful part of Prince Edward Island that, unfortunately appeals to millions of black flies and mosquitoes every year.. Red Clay bug screen is the only thing that works for both. I have an allergic reaction to black flies and found myself house bound during black fly season. I can now walk my lab everyday through the woods all season long. Wouldn’t be without Red Clay BUG SCREEN!
M.S., Rock Barra

“The refills are so easy to do, and we each take a bottle wherever we go. We all love the smell too. It works for us.”

T.S., Tyne Valley
One bottle of DIY CONCENTRATE makes THREE 2 oz bottles, standard industrial-strength grade, or 4 refills for less demanding situations. Just dilute the formula with water.

Essential oils have been used to support health since the invention of distillation. Not just pretty smells, they are plant essences offering a wide range of beneficial effects. 
Traditional knowledge about their use and applications has accumulated for millennia, and Western science is catching up. Ingredients in BUG SCREEN have recently been clinically proven to be many times stronger than DEET. With no side effects other than the sense of calm and well-being the blend imparts. 

Many are unaware that whatever goes on the skin goes into the bloodstream. Red Clay products are made with care in Ellerslie, Prince Edward Island, Mosquito Capital of Canada.

  1. Thank you so much for your beautiful products.
    Everything you make, from fly repellent, hand moisturizer, topical pain relief, hand sanitizer, natural disinfectant hand, and surface spray, they are all a pleasure to use, and your fragrances, and aromas are divine, and probably most important is the work..

    1. Hi Tammy: If you bought the DIY concentrate, then yes, it must be diluted. One small blue bottle with dropper refills the spray-top green bottle three times. There’s actually a bit extra to allow for error, or a bonus bit. Instructions are on the home page. If you have any problem, just let us know.
      If you bought the BUG SCREEN pre-mix, then no dilution is required. You’re ready to go!
      Thanks for your purchase!
