About Zika Max Defense 



Natural formulas designed to safely defend against virus-carrying mosquitoes and other invasive pests while preserving the environment. 

The natural formulas, lab-tested and holistically approved, defends against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, carrier of the Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya viruses, yellow fever and Anopheles malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

Zika Max Defense formulas are:

  • Safe for People, Pets, Planet

  • Safe for Food Handling Areas

  • EPA Exempt Natural Ingredients 

  • 100% DEET Free

  • 100% Chemical Free 

  • 100% Natural Formulas

The Hawkeye Global humanitarian initiative to PROTECT includes an ecologically sound solution-based program of repellent product applications utilizing the Zika Max Defense natural formula.

The Zika Max Defense formula utilizes natural insect repellent properties using essential oils proven to repel flying and crawling insects. 

We’re all aware of the current crisis causing governments worldwide great consternation. The Zika virus threat is a global reality affecting millions daily. Every visitor to an already Zika infected is acutely aware of the risk.  This is an economic and health disaster. Because Zika is also transmitted through blood or sexual contact then to partners or to mosquitoes, it is dangerous to the entire world population. The estimated cost for affected countries for 2016 is well over 3 billion dollars. Repellent supplies are currently unable to keep up with demand.


The current crisis of virus transmission by the female Aedes aegypti mosquito has focused global attention on the Zika virus, but this is only one of many viruses transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks and other biting insects.  This is a problem from the past that will reach well into the future. Although Zika is the current focus, it behooves us to consider introducing long-term programs for prevention and protection. Malaria, a super-killer, continues to affect world populations as does Dengue, West Nile and Chikungunya.

Toxic aerial spraying and fogging are proving ineffective against the Zika mosquito, a day-feeding female who also hides indoors.  Long-term health consequences of these environmentally applied chemicals and DEET-based repellents are beginning to be understood. 

The Hawkeye Global’s business model of repellent and preventative products, in addition to standard laboratory testing for efficacy, utilizes a unique testing method to validate ingredients as effective towards various viruses called Virus Response Testing.  

The initial launch of the Zika Max Defense program to the Americas and Puerto Rico, where the infestation is greatest, will target creating safer environments for the commercial and hospitality industries, schools, hotels, churches, and other private sector environments.


A unique program for hotels or commercial properties offers a supply - support system, ideal for multiple environments requiring specific Zika Max Defense formula applications.


Zika Max Defense Products

Repellent Body & Environment Oils:


The Zika Max Defense bulk oil or spray of light, natural botanical repellent formula. Safe for continued use, pregnant women, children, pets and the environment.  The ingredients are EPA exempt and safe for repeated use. Environmentally safe oils refer to methods of exposing spaces to natural, pleasantly fragranced oil while offering safe protection. Hotel rooms or classrooms, open door areas such as churches, pathways, seating, beach lounging areas, open bars or restaurant seating areas, schoolyards, entry areas, etc. 

A process of converting the Zika Max Defense natural formula into extruded recycled content plastic uniquely creates insect repellent garbage bags, trash liners and table covers (tablecloths) in addition to body and environment applications. Time-released nanotechnology as micro-pellets is impregnated into the polyethylene material at the time of extrusion. The botanical formula, released during use, is completely non-toxic. It is harmless to pets, children and the environment including beneficial pollinating insects. Made of 70% recycled content, 3-ply bags, and liners and sturdy while repelling insects.

Time - Released, Repellent Garbage and Trash Bags:  


Commercial sizes for restaurants, hotels, public spaces or anywhere garbage is collected and insects congregate.  Safe for food handling environments, the Zika Max Defense impregnated formula is micro-encapsulated into the  Using repellent bags helps prevent bacteria and other harmful, airborne spores while repelling flies, biting or stinging insects and mosquitoes. Dousing or fogging with toxic chemicals kills insects but also kills vital pollinators and creates organic debris. Repelling insects also prevent egg-laying in standing water pools created by collected, piled plastic garbage bags awaiting disposal. One ingredient naturally helps repel small rodents such as mice.

Time-Released, Eco-Repellent Covers for Ground, Tables, Open Areas:  


Disposable, single-ply, 70% recycled content plastic tablecloths, ground or general surface covers safely repel mosquitoes, flies and other insects. The formula creates a protective "zone" above, around and below the eating areas. Ideal for home use as protection for dining while congregating or for outdoor picnic tables, ground picnics. Also may be used as an under seat liner for strollers or play areas. Zonal protection is approximately 6-8' from the surface lasting 8-12 hours at higher potency, dissipating slowly over several additional hours. Commercial, bulk programs are available.

Repellent Products Features:

  • Made in the USA of up to 70% recycled content. Unopened inventory remains active (indefinite shelf life).

  • Sturdy 3-ply construction for bags concentrates repellency into the outer layer for maximum effectiveness. 

  • 100% botanical oil non-toxic formula. 100% DEET FREE, artificial fragrance and chemical free.

  • Naturally repels virus-carrying mosquitoes including the Aedes aegypti, the transmitter of the Zika, dengue, West Nile and chikungunya, common house and other flies, wasps, hornets, bees, yellow jackets, roaches, ants, ticks, other crawling & flying insects & small rodents.

  • Anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antimicrobial; a natural germicide. Retards fungi growth of mold, mildew and other dangerous airborne spores. 

  • Environment and food handling safety. The botanical formulas are made from fully compliant EPA exempt GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) ingredients. FDA approved.

  • The long-lasting formula remains effective (exposure dependent) once removed from packaging creating a ZONAL EFFECT or protected radius extending outward, individually and collectively.  

  • Repelling insects instead of killing them reduces organic debris normally created by dead insects, a leading cause of bacterial and fungal growth and contributing to airborne health issues.

  • Pleasantly fragranced (for humans!), reduces odor by eliminating odor-causing decay.

  • Protects valuable pollinating insects and mosquito-eating bats and birds. 

Zika Virus and DEET Fact Summary:

When, in history, has a government ever advised women to delay planned pregnancies because of a mosquito-transmitted virus that may cause severe birth defects?  Pope Francis has condoned birth control in affected areas! Unheard of! The long term repercussions are dire. 


The clock is ticking and officials are desperately in need of workable solutions for both immediate and long-term control. The negative environmental effects of current eradication systems are only just now being realized. 

  • Almost one million deaths per year are related to mosquito-borne diseases. This number is expected to increase as the warming global climate broadens the habitats of these disease vectors. 


  • All insect repellents wear off after a few hours.  Repeated applications are necessary to ensure protection. DEET and other toxic chemicals are absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream.  Safe, natural formulas solutions offer repellency with no toxic absorption. 


  • DEET and other toxic chemicals are showing up in our drinking water and are now posing health risks. Hawkeye Global’s formulas naturally integrate with the environment and pose no health threat. 


  • Broadband spraying and DEET based products using current formulas do not affect the Zika mosquito. This is being done to show the public action is being taken. At the same time, the public is not being shown the dramatic consequences of environmental pollution of; air, ground, water, people and the destruction of pollinating insect populations. 

Mans Deadliest Enemy:

One Million Deaths Annually

“The most deadly ‘animal’ in the world is the mosquito. It might seem impossible that something so minuscule can kill so many people, but it’s true. According to the World Health Organization, mosquito bites result in the deaths of more than 1 million people every year. The majority of these deaths are due to malaria and estimates that between 300 and 500 MILLION cases of malaria occur each year…and a child dies from malaria every 30 seconds."
