Types of Insect Repellents

Insect repellents can come in many forms and are used for different purposes, including:

  • DEET (mosquitoes, ticks, some flies) - most used type of repellent
  • Picaridin (mosquitoes, ticks, flies) - highly effective, can be applied on skin as a spray or lotion
  • Synthesised plant oils (mosquitoes, some ticks) - considered as chemicals, uses lemon eucalyptus oil and IR3535
  • Permethrin (mosquitoes, ticks) - this synthetic chemical is used to treat clothing, making them insect repellent

Long-lasting Protection

Some insect repellents can provide protection for more than 10 hours against specific insects, which is crucial for individuals who are looking to embark on a journey into the wilderness.
