BugBand Bed Bugs No More! uses a "trade-secret" Geraniol formulation that kills bed bug eggs, larvae, nymphs and adults on contact. Standard pesticide products are nerve agents that only kill adult insects with a developed nervous system. The Geraniol in BugBand Bed Bugs No More! works by attacking the bed bug's exoskeleton which makes it an effective insecticide against them.

Geraniol, the active ingredient in BugBand insect repelling products, is a natural essential oil derived from geraniums. When Geraniol is exclusively formulated with other minimum risk or food-grade ingredients, the resulting insect repellent products are not regulated pesticides when they meet federally established criteria. It is a biodegradable ingredient that is safe to use and safe for the environment. There is no known toxicity to animals or wildlife.
Geraniol has a relatively high vapor pressure and gives off a dilute vapor into the air stream which acts as an area repellent. This helps repel insects before they land. The natural tendency of Geraniol to evaporate makes it work as the active ingredient in wristbands, plastic beads, and other BugBand repellent products. It also helps to improve the efficacy of liquid spray Geraniol BugBand repellents.
