Bite-Lite LLC is a Connecticut based family business founded in 2010 to develop and market biting and stinging insect control products inspired by nature. It introduced its Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles to the market to give retailers and consumers a fragrant and effective alternative to citronella-only and chemical based candles without smoke or soot. Its scientists were inspired to create a proprietary blend of essential oils after observing monkeys at a Florida sanctuary using lemons and limes on their fur to presumably repel biting insects. Field tests in the Florida swamps in 2011 showed that Bite-Lite’s® patent pending technology worked significantly to reduce attraction to mosquito traps. Three candles are now made in America.
