I am a scout leader from Victoria BC Canada. I have used your Bygone (Bugz) Herbal Outdoor (Formula) for many years and have found a lot of people asking me to supply it to them. I have sent it to friends and used the product in Florida as well.
My wife and I are actively involved with youth and the outdoors . . .Victoria is in the middle of the rainforest...and I have tested your product on lots of bugs. Best Regards, RW. 12/30/2008
Dear Backpacker (magazine)
I have tried them all from 100% DEET to Skin So Soft. The best stuff
by far that I have found is Bygone Bugs from Lakon Herbals. I have
used Bygone Bugs extensively in northern British Columbia home of
the Sikorsky blackfly and so many no seeums that you can see them,
and it's the best non-DEET stuff around. It's also great for kids.

From Natural Heath Magazine
Our experience showed that herbal DEET free repellents do work, but vary
Natrapel and Bygone Bugz (TM) appeared to edge out the other brands with
Bug-Off a close second. ….Bygone Bugz(TM), an aromatic blend of
essential oils, had in our opinion, the most delightful fragrance of
the five herbals (tested)." Natural Heath*May/June 1992
|Dear Lakon Herbals:
Thank you for calling back to confirm my order for 6 bottles of
Bygone Bugz. My family and I were so thrilled to find Lakon Herbals
and your incredible product again! Not only is it the SAFEST product
on the market, but it is also the most EFFECTIVE one, as well. The
only times my family and I suffered insect bites were when we ran
out of Bygone Bugz.
I've bought several insect repellents at my local store
after running out of yours, each time describing to them what I
REALLY hoped to find on the shelves was Bygone Bugs.
Anyway, best of luck and I'm sure you'll be hearing from us
again! Thank you,
The Bygone Bugz product saved the day for the team Nantahala. The
bugs were so bad as I've ever seen them. While most teams were
getting eaten alive or wearing bug mesh clothing we escaped
I am a big fan. E. and I used up the last of the oil this weekend in
Savanah, Ga. It even keeps away pesky marsh files.
I will continue to spread the word on your product. Best Regards.

Bygone Bugz is the by-far-best. About 3 weeks ago I was with a group
of 60 people exploring red-rocks park in Burly. It was muggy and
there were mosquitoes galore. I held up the Lakon Bug dope and
people flocked to me, all asking, "where can I buy this?".
Answer. Health Food Store. Thanks Again. J.H. Shoreham, Vt.
|Dear Lakon Herbals:
I was given a bottle of Bygone Bugs insect formula by a friend a
couple of years ago, and I really enjoy using it. It works, it
smells good and it's non-toxic… T. L. South Portland Me.

|Dear Lakon Herbals, I travel to Africa every fall with a group of students. We have found that Bygone Bugz works the best. Thank you for your prompt service getting our order to us on time! .T.R. Ct.
|Dear Sir or Madam-
I was introduced to Bygone Bugzz during a vacation visit to Corkscrew Sanctuary in Florida and loved it!
Please let me know if I can purchase your products by mail or where the nearest retailer is located. –B.O., New Rochelle, N.Y.
|Dear Lakon Herbals;
Lat year I purchased the last two bottles of Bygone Bugzz from a local grocery store. The store no longer carries this product and I can’t find it anywhere. Please advise me as to where I may purchase more.
Your product works great on the little black flies we have in my area!
Sincerely, D.B., Woodbury Ct.
