Bite-Lite® from the rest?
Insect control products are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). Bite-Lite candles fall under EPA's special category of insect control products that are exempt from federal registration under section 25(b) of FIFRA. In order to qualify as a 25(b) product, the active and inert ingredients must all be listed on the EPA's website. In addition, EPA requires special labeling on these 25(b) products. When comparing repelling candles, whether natural or synthetic, make sure they either have an EPA registration number or state, "This product has not been registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. We [company name here] represent that this product qualifies for exemption from registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act."
All products, whether they have a federal registration or an exemption under 25(b), are required by law to be registered in the states in which they are sold (most states require state registrations). Bite Lite has taken the necessary extra steps of registering its natural repelling candles, and can be legally sold anywhere in the US as a 25(b) product.
