Zone Repellents all began when Brian Baer had an idea to help keep dogs from digging holes in the yard, flower beds and under fences. As a Chemical Engineer, Brian worked hard to create safe solutions to spray onto spots where the family dog was regularly ripping up the yard or destroying flower beds. As that idea took off, another “repellent trouble spot” that had been plaguing Brian for years began to bother him. The first product was actually a landscape bark infused with a repellent solution called No Holes Bark!
Avid outdoor-loving people living in the south, his family was constantly plagued by mosquitos and other annoying insects any time they stepped out their front door. But mainstream insect repellents were not to his liking as they contained dangerous chemicals such as DEET. DEET left an oily feel on the skin and has been known to carry adverse health effects in addition to damaging clothing and plastics. With his entrepreneurial mind and his chemistry and engineering experience, Brian set out to develop an insect repellent that was more effective than mainstream products, smelled great, and was completely safe to use for everyone including children, pregnant women, and the family pet. Along came Zone Insect Repellent. Designed with our own family in mind, it’s the perfect blend of tough and gentle.
