CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

With gnats being a huge problem this summer, the product Buggins is getting a lot of buzz, but does it work?

“I have a little business called Run Your Tail Off and it's mainly walking dogs and some pet sitting,” said Deb Litzelfelner.

Deb Litzelfelner spends most of her day outside and when Mother Nature is your office there is one thing you can't avoid this year, gnats!

“You just can't get away from them,” said Deb. “You have to do this all day long.”

Deb says she hasn't found a great solution to these pesky gnats and her four legged clients don't seem thrilled either. The product Buggins looks like it could be the answer, it claims in bold to repel gnats and annoying flies.

“I like that it's deet free and it's natural,” said Deb. “It's not the preferable cologne you want to have, oh but if it works it's great.”

Vanilla mint and rose may not be Deb's scent of choice, but she generously sprays herself down anyway and takes off through the park. It doesn't take long to find the enemy, the gnats are here. After some more walking, it's time to see if this pest it still bugging her.

“I usually have to use the leash and my hand to swat them away, but didn't have to do it once,” said Deb.

Whoa, so far so good.

“It's not quite as gnatty as it has been, but I didn't swat any,” said Deb.

The good breeze may have something to do with the lower gnat population, but Buggins did seem to repel what was out there.

“I can smell that aroma anywhere I walk, so, if I went indoors I would certainly want to wash off,” said Deb.

Buggins did keep the bugs off and flies in with a grade B on this Does It Work test.
