Insect repellent is tough on mosquitoes, other biting bugs

When mosquitoes and other biting insects target you in your campsite or on the trail, you need to get tough. And so should your insect repellent. Repel 100 Insect Repellent will keep you covered with maximum DEET protection from biting insects for up to 10 hours. It’s formulated to repel mosquitoes that may carry West Nile virus even in the most severe insect conditions.

DEET has been used as an insect repellent in the U.S. for more than 50 years. DEET-based products are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control for effective, long-lasting mosquito protection. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, DEET-based products pose no health concerns as long as they are used according to label directions.

Application Recommendations
Use just enough repellent to cover all exposed skin, but apply sparingly on your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth. To use Repel 100 on the outer surfaces of your clothing, spray your shirt, pants, and hat. Apply to the tops of your socks and around the openings of your outer clothing. Wash your hands after application, as DEET-based products may damage some synthetic fabrics and materials.

Repel 100 will repel mosquitoes and other biting insects for up to 10 hours, but coverage length can vary if you get wet or if you’re sweating excessively. Reapply if you are noticing mosquito activity around you again. You can use Repel 100 and sunscreen at the same time. Apply the sunscreen first, and then apply the insect repellent.

Product Description
Repel 100 uses a 98.1-percent Deet formula to provide complete protection from mosquitoes, ticks, gnats, chiggers, no-see-ums, and biting flies. Use in areas of high infestation or prolonged periods of outdoor activity for up to 10-hour of protection. The new 4-ounce pump is large enough for high use consumers, yet small enough for easy portability.

You can find Repel 100 Insect Repellent on Amazon for about $9 for a 4-ounce pump spray bottle.
