Verified Buyer Reviewed by banditgsf1200s from Twilight zone on Monday, July 9, 2012Its bug repellent ... not the strongest but not the weakest. No better (or worse) then say the Deep-Woods off you can purchase in any drug store.
As mentioned above it works well on mosquitos but in my experience is not very effective on flies unless applied heavily.
- Best Uses: Great for the back yard
- Cons: Sticky
- Pros: Doesn't smell too bad, Not so much on flies, Works for mosquitos
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kim from Houston, Tx on Monday, July 2, 2012I bought this to take on a trip to Vietnam where malaria and other mosquito born diseases are a problem. I thought it was 30% Deet as the CDC and the foreign travel medical clinic recommends, but it is only 25%. I live in Houston, and have tried it. It definitely works here so I hope it will be sufficient on my trip as well.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by NWFLYGUY from Spokane on Monday, May 28, 2012What can I say, it's bug repellent!
- Best Uses: Bug repelant
- Pros: Less odor, Long Lasting
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jo from Locust Grove GA on Wednesday, April 18, 2012Too bad 3M doesn't sell this in local stores. Much better than the Off! products. Only negative is really a precautionary. Wear a sweatband so it won't get in your eyes if you sweat or it will sting!
- Best Uses: Raking leaves, While trimming trees, Working in garden
- Cons: Only lasts 2-3 hours
- Pros: Keeps off all biting bugs, Not sticky or stinky, Resists sweat
Reviewed by aearney from St. Louis, MO on Monday, April 16, 2012I used this on a hike today in the Missouri woods and it worked very well. Goes on easy, no obnoxious odors, doesn't feel sticky. I forgot I had it on! Not a single bug bite, mosquito bite or tick got to me. Highly recommended.
