Off Bug Control is a pretty handy product when it comes to keeping those pesky bugs away. It's great for outdoor activities like camping or picnics. Just spray it on your skin or clothes, and it creates a protective barrier against mosquitoes and other insects. It's definitely a must-have for those warm summer nights.

Sprayer malfunction

Dee - 5 months ago
originally posted on http://off.com
Our problem is similar to the review by Bryce. When the hose is connected and water turned on, a significant leak occurs near the hose connection joint, just like Bryce shows in his video. The leak is so significant that very little flow comes out the front jet. Probably a badly formed injection molding process for the orange body.

The connection to the hose popped off and became disassembled when water was turned on. It wasn't a lot of pressure or a long duration. I'm left with a product is pretty useless as it doesn't go back together. Wondering what to do next.

Never had any problems with sprayer or efficacy. Controls mosquitoes for up to 8 weeks as advertised. Caveat: I do apply this thoroughly, especially in areas where standing water may last for more than 48-72 hours.

Sprayer does not work

Bryce - 9 months ago

Within the first few seconds of turning my hose on, the hose adapter completely blew off the trigger assembly. I re-assembled and now it doesn't properly seal. Water sprays everywhere when I turn it on. I didn't even get to at least try some of the product to see if it worked because the trigger assembly is built so cheap and weak.

Poor quality spray bottle

When hooked to my garden hose more water was spraying out of the orange nozzle middle & hose connection on to me then was going onto the yard. It had the washer inside & did not work. Lots of water leaking out between the washer & before spray tip. It was a mess to use.

It works great if the chemical is drawn from the bottle correctly. I don't know why some bottles are getting more liquid in the bottle after spraying for a while. It did not kill mosquitoes when this happened. I tried to squeeze the bottle while spraying, still not much help. Bought 2 bottles, same. It'd work if the bottle is getting emptied while spraying.

J does laundry - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this because mosquitos love me and I get bitten up just taking out the trash. But after reading the label thoroughly, I decided not to use it. Not only does it say it's harmful to pollinators like bees, it also clearly states that it is harmful to humans and pets. I'll pass on this and try to find a healthier alternative.
1 reply from OFF!_Product Expert team - 11 months ago
Thanks for reaching out and sharing your concerns. We hear you and want to assure you that when used per label directions, OFF!® Backyard Pretreat is safe to use to repel mosquitoes. We don't promote killing bees as they are beneficial to the environment and necessary for pollination, that's why we only state using if bees are not present in the area. We'd appreciate the chance to restore your faith in our products so please give us a call at 1-800-558-5252 (M-F, 8 AM to 5 PM CT) and mention your reference number: 22033108.

I’m so mad I don’t know what this things was made for it did nothing bugs loved it. I had to choose this since my go to stuff was out and needed something next day and boy was I surprised at all the bugs walking around more flies the usual buzzing around what a joke. Don’t buy this stuff spend a lil more and you want to wake up go to your back yard and see nothing flying around and dead bugs on the floor then get Bayer advanced bug killer it’s the best you’ll never find anything better.
1 reply from OFF!_Product Expert team - 2 years ago
I’m so sorry to hear of your experience with OFF!® Bug Control Backyard Pretreat. To help ensure you receive the best protection when mosquito activity is high, we recommend using personal repellents in addition to area repellents. When the entire area has been treated, we’d expect repellency to last up to 8 weeks. As your recent purchase didn’t match our expectations, we’d like the chance to further help. When you’re free, please give us a call at 1-800-558-5252 (Monday through Friday 8 AM to 5 PM CT) and provide reference number 020757935A. – Rachel, SC Johnson Consumer Care

Gail79 - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I’ve been using this for a few years. Claims to last up to 8 weeks but I’d say a week max in my yard if the weather cooperates. I live in DC and my yard is virtually unusable from May-October with the mosquito situation. Living in close quarters to others I do not have control over every little bit of standing water so I spray this a day or 2 before I know we’ll be outside. I wish I’d lasted longer, I apply per the instructions, but it’s better than nothing.

Best Summer Use!

danielled251 - 2 years ago

I literally use this twice a year in my front yard and back yard and it's so worth it because if you have a yard that feels like mosquitoes just won't leave then this is it. It helps out for end of spring and end of summer because it keeps the biting down from getting eaten alive while trying to enjoy time outside in your own yard. It's worth the price and doesn't damage your lawn or affect your animals.

This works really well if you spray the yard before a get together. It lasts a few days and reduces bugs to almost nothing. This is better than everyone having to spray themselves. Perfect for outside holidays.

Works really well for mosquitoes

Ali - 2 years ago

I have 20 acres on a river with lots of trees, prime mosquito zones. I cannot say enough about how well this stuff works to keep the mosquitoes away! I have been using it for years and it works every time. With a lot of ground to cover, I only wish it came in a form that could easily be used in a sprayer on the 4 wheeler or golf cart. We have made it work by estimating the concentration to use, but it would be great to have it available in a larger container, or at least some guidance on the proper ratio of product to water. I have a friend who pays a company to treat her city lot and still has a lot of mosquitoes in her yard.
