“For You, Your Horse & Your Dog!”

Our Natural Tick & Insect Repellent No. 05 is a safe, human-grade, effective solution that uses a unique and extremely effective blend to repel most nuisance insects & wood ticks. It is deet free does not leave a sticky film and is even good for your skin. Our custom formulation is a perfect tick and insect repellent that is effective for everyone who loves to be outdoors and is safe for the environment too.

I was inspired to develop this Tick & Insect Repellent because of the research and information about the possible adverse neurological effects the deet and other chemicals in our bug sprays with side effects can cause, and the possible adverse effects of pyrothroids in mammals. I have read several studies that have raised concerns about potentially adverse effects on sperm quality and sperm DNA, reproductive hormones, and pregnancy outcomes in mammals. This information was enough for me to feel passionate about developing a natural alternative to protect ourselves and our animals from ticks and other insects.

As a breeder of Morgan horses, and owner of 3 Border Collies living in Midwest Wisconsin, which is the heart of tick borne disease, I felt it was crucial to develop a product that I could spray on ourselves living and working here in the woods and our breeding stallions, mares and foals, along with our dogs. I have had Lyme disease myself, our dogs have tested positive for exposure to tick borne disease and we have had horses get tick borne disease.

    When I was working by the pond in the Texas summer I never had to worry about walking back up to the house all itchy and angry if I put this on first. Plus it smells so nice that it made scooping out the pond a relaxing experience instead of a funky one lol. Works great

    This is the first product we ever tried. It’s now the only bug repellent we use. It WORKS, smells great, and I can live with the ingredient list. Thank you, Ranch Life Naturals!

    I tried this repellent last year on myself and my grandkids and it worked great! No tics or mosquitoes bit us. I’m coming In to buy more today!

    I have used RLN Tick & Insect Repellent myself for a couple of years because it doesn’t contain harmful chemicals, doesn’t cause irritation, and it works. Mid-Summer, my horse developed an allergy (hives) to at least 2 types of chemical fly sprays, so we switched her to RLN Tick & Insect Repellent. It seemed to work as well as the chemical sprays, and didn’t cause her any adverse reactions. On a recent camping/trailriding vacation in Western WI we accidentally did a comparison test: Our first day out, my husband used chemical spray on his horse, and I sprayed mine with RLN before we went riding. When we got back to camp, his horse was full of tiny ticks on the legs, chest, and underbelly, but there were only 2 on my horse’s legs. He re-sprayed his horse but we still hand-removed the ticks, as they continued to crawl around. Next day after riding, ticks on my husband’s horse again, none on mine. This time, we sprayed him with RLN and literally watched the ticks die as soon as the RLN spray hit them. A light spray also immediately took care of the tiny ticks crawling on our dog. We used RLN spray on both horses and our dog the rest of our vacation, and will continue to use it.


    No insect repellent worked, but when I tried this it kept the mosquitos away!

    I love the smell and use it on my horse. It does help control the biting flies, and I prefer it over other fly sprays.

    I recently tried this. It seems to work great. I did get a couple bites, but I am usually a mosquito magnet. Just recently, I forgot this product at home and used someone else’s natural mosquito repellent. I was being eaten alive. I ended up resorting to a product with deet. It was better, but still had some bites. My kids were also covered in bites. The next night I used this product and had just one bite and that was after an hour of wearing this product. My kids had no new bites, and my husband said that this was the only natural insect repellent that he can stand the smell of. We will definitely be buying more.
