Outer Banks Skeeter Beater

We are always happy to help new businesses here at the Village and this venture sounds like it could really do well. For those of you who have been here in the summer you may have noticed that the mosquitos, sometimes, can be very annoying. This was especially true after the last hurricane when there was a lot of standing water. Outer Banks Skeeter Beater was started by Brian Mervine, a local, out of Manns Harbor.

The mission statement says “Our goal is to provide an all natural green product that is none greasy and dries on the skin, that is safe for humans, animals and the environment. We want to provide an all natural product that is affordable and works”

Sounds good to me. I have a sample here and the stuff actually smells good.

It does not contain Deet and is manufactured with 100% natural ingredients that, as their website states…”Protects against
All Flies

If you want more information or to place an order you can email Brian at

I highly recommend giving it a try if you are headed to a performance of the Lost Colony Outdoor Drama on Roanoke Island. Can’t hurt and it might just save the night.

Until next time,
