Vanilla Skeeter-Nip was formulated in response to sammysoap wholesale customer requests during the floods of 2017. A large contingency of Corp of Engineers was dispatched to the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers north of St. Louis. These men and women wanted vanilla in their mosquito formulas because vanilla works against northern black flies. We had never seen black flies this far south but here they were, and they are nasty. We worked with partners to determine an effective vanilla formula and launched it in 2019.
