Skeeter Screen is a DEET- and pyrethrin-free bug spray made with an essential oil that smells great and keeps the bugs away. It’s effective, long-lasting and safe. Why protect yourself from bugs with anything else?
The History of Skeeter Screen
Skeeter Screen is a product of Scent Shop, a 50-year-old institution in the fragrance world. Scent Shop was founded in 1970 by the husband and wife team of John and Jean Stuart and had its beginnings as a custom perfume store in Forest Hills, Texas. John and Jean were both trained scientists and always knew the right combination of ingredients to please any nose. Today the business is based in nearby Garland, Texas, but has stayed in the Stuart family. John and Jean’s three sons are now also involved in running the business.
Skeeter Screen was developed by the Stuarts and is based off of a family blend that includes cedar, rosemary, peppermint, clove and thyme. The first Skeeter Screen hit the market in the late 2000’s and was soon being sold by local businesses, including the gift shop of the Dallas Arboretum.
Today, Skeeter Screen products can be purchased across the country, through retailers like Thrive Market.
Skeeter Screen Company Mission
All of the products in the Skeeter Screen line are made from natural ingredients and are safe to use around people and pets. Unlike the big brands, Skeeter Screen products are completely DEET- and pyrethrin-free. While common in a variety of sprays, DEET can be toxic in large quantities. With Skeeter Screen, families don’t have to choose between the convenience of good bug spray and safety.
Our sense of smell is extremely important. It influences the way we feel about the world around us. Scents can make us recall happy memories - like long summer picnics and cookouts. Having started in the world of custom perfumes, Scent Shop believes that effective, long-lasting bug spray should smell good too.
