I haven't had the Mosiguard long enough to test it properly. But it rolls on well, feels good and smells great. And it's recommended by a top-end safari camp in Kenya. They know their stuff so I'm confident that if anything can save me from midge attacks, it's Mosiguard. Here's hoping...
Mosiguard is absolutely the best protection against ticks. We live in the South East Qld in the hinterland bush area of the coastal strip, and have a lots of ticks in our garden. Tick can carry all sorts of diseases, so we seriously needed a solution to avoid being bitten all the time whilst in the garden. With small children, we were not willing to use DEET due to the health effects. Mosiguard has been absolutely brilliant - its safe to use with kids, and extremely effective - we simply don't get ticks on us when we use it.
Mosiguard roll-on is quicky and easy to apply, and the AUS East coast midges don't come near me. Even when I'm standing, bare arms and legs, between the pandanus trees at the beach and the swifts are collecting midges all along the tree line. Great stuff!
This is absolutely the best insect repellent ever, and how fitting that the active ingredient, Lemon Eucalyptus, is from Australia, land of all biting things! I am a confirmed mozzie and midge magnet (think welts, blistering, itching for days), but despite that, I love the tropics (because of the fruit!) and now can confidently go into jungle mode without fear of being eaten alive. In fact, the only time I ever get bitten now is if I forget to apply MosiGuard, which is why I have ordered enough to keep one at home, outside, in the purse, and in the car. It works wonders to keep ticks off, too, so important as their bites can lead to more serious consequences. I find that a roll-on is the most convenient method of application and economical, it goes a long way if you wear long sleeve shirts and long pants and just need to apply to face, neck, wrists and ankles. i personally think the scent is appealing although I am usually very sensitive to smells. Add to this the fact it's the safest thing to use as well as being the most effective--well, it's a no brainer, I'll be keeping up a standing order of MosiGuard and recommend it to everyone! PS It would make a great Christmas stocking stuffer, just in time for living outdoors all summer.
I bought Mosigiard for long-term use in the Solomon Islands which has Zika, malaria and dengue. It is the only natural repellent I've found that works in this level of the tropics. Electronic, citronella and other natural repellents did not work. Deet products worked but caused allergic and skin reactions over time. I am now a repeat buyer of MosiGuard and recommend it to all.
I am a repeat buyer because it works on both sandflies and mosquitoes. We camp with children along the coast of central qld and this product matches any other DEET product in its ability to deter Sandfly’s and mosquitoes.
Mosiguard is unbelievable! We. ( my husband and 10 year old son) travelled through India and went on a tent safari in Rhajastan, I was worried about malaria & Denge so researched for a natural repellent online discovering Mosiguard.
The mosquitoes were out of control on safari and I remember my son standing outside the tent in a cloud of mosquitoes laughing as they bounced off his skin. It was incredible! We managed to stay bite free for the whole trip. No nasty deet and totally effective!
My office and home are right on the beachfront so mozzies and sandflies are prolific and they LOVE me. I hate the idea of applying deet on a daily basis and can’t stand the smell of the toxic insect repellants. Tried mozzie guard for the first time a few months ago and it definitely works. It works even better than some of the toxic products. The smell took about a week to adjust to, its very pleasant but very strong. I would say it wouldn’t bother most people as people often comment on “what smells so nice” so I think I’m just very sensitive to strong smells. I’m glad I persevered though as after 1 week the smell didn’t irritate me at all and it has a lovely cooling sensation, plus, leaves my legs feeling moisturised. I apply it 3 times per day over a 10 hour shift and if I forget, I know about it! I also use it early morning when I run or go to yoga and have recommended it to many friends and guests.
We have a courtyard with bamboo and is very shady and mossie's are a real problem - they almost swarm as we step outside. Shortly, we are moving to our own apartment which is in an area known for sandflies. When we have walked by the river near our new apartment, I came away with multiple sandfly bites which flare up the next day, are SO itchy and take weeks to heal. So when I found Mosiguard on the internet, I thought I'd give it a try, as I won't disrespect my body by smothering it with chemicals. Mosiguard works a treat!!! I go out into our courtyard and see the mossies flying around me, but I no longer get bitten. We went to the river near our new apartment and again - no bites. My Mum came with us near the river and got bitten, so I gave her my spare mosiguard and it took the itch away from the bite and she didn't get any more bites through the evening. She loved it so much, she took it home with her - so I'm back to order more. Thanks guys for the great product and great service!!!!
I love Mosiguard - took it to Myanmar in the wet season and it really works. I'm very sensitive to chemicals and this is the only repellant I've been able to tolerate so far. The service here is amazing - my order arrived so quickly. Thank you!
Chemical free repellent that really works and is long lasting. The mosquitos and sandflies can be vicious in my area and Mosi-Guard works a treat! Will be buying more!
I was concerned about mosquito born diseases and other bitey insects for our planned trip to Borneo, so I researched non-chemical insect repellents. Mosi-guard had great reviews and scientific research to back it up. So I bought some for our trip and was extremely pleased - it even worked at repelling the voracious leeches in the jungle. I have used this ever since - in Cape York, the Kimberley and in the backyard! It just works.
A great product that is very effective - much more so than all other natural products that we've tried.
Anyone who has kids should be using this on them, no question.
It's now completely replaced our chemical-based repellents so many thanks for waving the flag for healthy alternatives!
Great product that works
Great service - arrived in the mail only 2 days after order in FNQ!
What a great natural product, safe to use on families. Mosiguard protected our family when we had problems with midges and sandflies. The one time I forgot to use it I got bitten like crazy! Thank you Seamus for your prompt replies and processing my order so quickly. Much appreciated.
The only reason I am 'only' giving four stars is to leave room for improvement. MosiGuard works, and few others do. I find that it needs to be renewed every three–four hours and that might be due to how hot, humid and sweaty these mangrove swaps are.
I will be buying another lot in the future, definitely.
[Mosiguard] remains my favourite insect repellant and has travelled to many places with me, and protected my daughter after two bouts of dengue fever when work has found her living in various mozzie heaven sites around the world.
I received my parcel the day after I ordered, so fabulous service to start with!! We just got back from our holiday where sometimes even Bushman's doesn't help, and this time I didn't get any bites at all!!! Put the Mosi-guard on first thing in the morning and again mid afternoon and never had an issue. Thanks heaps!!!
I wanted to give you some feed back as I am very happy with your product and will recommend it to our family and friends to use for the future.
I bought a roll on before we left and used it over in Bali on our 9 yr old son. He has had some terrible reactions to mosquito repellents before so I was hesitant on using this on his skin but it was fabulous.
I just didn't use it around the face area but he had not one bite our whole time away.
I am glad I did my research into a more efficient but kinder to the skin repellent and found yours.
I have been using this for about 6 months now and swear by it, NT is prone to sand flies and mozzies before finding this I used to get flogged but now I cover my self with the roll on and after a day fishing I am bite free, it will also become a part of my over seas travel gear for the Philippines.
This Mosi-Guard is the best.
I bought this from Seamus Campbell a couple of months ago as I am highly allergic to sand flies.
I have been using it with not one bite yet.
Highly recommend this product and with Easter holidays on the way Camping etc I wouldn't put any other product on myself or my kids.
Amazing stuff. I no longer get itchy & swollen welts from the critters when I'm out in the middle of the bush!
As someone who gets a severe reaction to mossies, I have tried many and found this one makes me the happiest - the smell is not heavy and not unpleasant to me, it gives a slightly cool feeling when applied which i think is very nice in the heat, it feels good to use a lot because there is nothing nasty in it.
Some other cool things: Had a leech on my ankle after swimming at some cascades, rubbed a bit of the mossieguard close to where the leech was attached and watched it drop off.
Also, friends used some mossieguard on their existing burning raised bites and they were soothed right away and gone away not long after.
On a bushwalk on Tasmania's west coast I experimented one day by putting mosigard on one leg only and then counting the number of times march flies would land and prepare to bite, rather than fly off immediately.
When I got to 10-0 I decided the stuff must be working!
For my next trip I realised I had run out of Mosigard, so I ordered some more, but I needed it in a matter of days.
The guy I dealt with (Seamus) was very helpful and made sure the package was in the post promptly and it arrived the day before I set off.
Coming all the way from Cairns, that was very impressive. Thanks!
I couldn't have lived at Portland Roads without Mosiguard.
If you have sand flies cover every inch with mosiguard, it needs to be a barrier, they are not like mossies they don't care about smell.
And do it first thing in the morning and about 3 in the afternoon, before they bite you, you don't feel them for 20 mins I learnt a lot living across the road from mangroves at Portland Roads, near Lockhart River, the northern-most town on the east coast of Australia.
With regular repellant I found I scratched old bites so the repellant would come off and the sand flies find any bare patch, but mosiguard relieves the itch and stays on better.
We use this to prevent tick bites on our kids, as we live in a very tick prone area.
Its been fabulous.
It was such a relief to find a safe effective product for our small children rather than having to resort to DEET.
This stuff is amazing.
We live on a farm in rural NSW and have pet sheep which attract many flies.
Our backyard has the Murray River running through it.
In summer the temps get into the high 40's and the flies, sandflies, midges and mozzies are everywhere.
I bought one bottle to try it and 2 days after getting it in the mail I am about to order 2 more.
What a relief to walk outside and not get covered in flies or bitten by mozzies at dusk.
Thanks so much Seamus for getting the mosi guard to me so quickly, I am looking forward to a summer with no bites or itches.
So impressed that it is natural as Deet is a dangerous poison and not as effective as this.
I even put some on my sheeps heads and backs and they seem fine with it and it has reduced the flies on them as well.
Great product which will be in my cupboard forever!!!!!!
Very happy with my first roll on bottle of Mosi-guard.
It smells good, is easy to apply and works against a range of insects including sandflies and mozzies.
As a naturopath I prefer to avoid unnecessary chemicals so it's good to find a safer, more natural alternative to DEET.
I am the Director of a preschool in Sydney where we foster a love of nature and children engaging in outdoor play. But sometimes outdoor play involves mosquitoes! A few years ago I searched the internet to find a natural product that we would be able to apply to children’s skin on a daily basis that actually repelled mosquitoes. I found Mosi-guard! Mosi-guard allows our children to play bite free anywhere in our outdoor environment. For children who have in the past experienced allergic reactions to mosquito bites it has been a lifesaver! A number of parents now take a bottle of Mosi-guard home with them after approaching us to find out what we use. From our experience, I could not recommend Mosi-guard more highly to anyone who wants an effective repellent minus the chemicals!

My partner and i recently travelled to South America and spend a lot of time in the Bolivian jungles and also Mexican Jungles.
We were adamant to use a natural alternative to repelling mosquitos, ticks and all the other creepy crawlies in the jungle so we tried Mosi-Guard.
We were utterly surprised at how well it worked. The hundreds of mosquitos that continually surrounded us, didn’t dare go near our skin, same as the ticks.
It works so powerfully, smells so fresh and i would like to thank you for such an impressive product. We met many other travellers who had skin conditions and even burns from using DEET, and i am so glad i found Mosi-Guard. Thank You! I would like to leave this testimony and please feel free to use it on any website!
Kind Regards, Melody and Brad
