This is a great protector for scout groups, school trips, or anytime you are administering to younger children because of it's alcohol-free formula that provides longer protections from a low concentration DEET repellant and is gentle on the skin.

This is some of the best bug spray I've ever used. I bought it in a panic when I found out that I was almost out of bug stuff before a weeklong trip, and I don't think I'll be buying anything else again. The spray has almost no odour, and lasts about twelve hours (without water - the spray is water soluable, making it easy to remove, but you'll have to reapply it after swimming or showering). I didn't get a single bite on that trip, and I was hiking through wet, marshy lowlands in late summer. You could barely see for the mosquitos in the air, there were twelve tick removals and three members of my group sustained multiple bites per night, despite using bug spray and closed sleeping bags. Also, it doesn't destroy plastic like some similar products.
I use the 4oz pump spray - much smaller, and fewer resources to make.
I used this for a week in Nicaragua, I only got 2 mosquito bites, and normally those bloodsuckers love me. I switched to a natural repellent for the 2nd week with equal success. I am not super stoked on using DEET since it's not awesome for the environment or your health. I would definitely use this again if I were traveling in a known Malaria zone, but if Malaria isn't an issue I will stick to using a DEET-free repellent in the future like Item # AMK0119, Adventure Medical Natruapel which provided similar results.
This product is the best bug repellent I have ever used. Recently in Yellowknife, NWT Canada and the mosquitoes were in abundance. Applied Ben's when going outside and never experienced any bites what so ever. Applied on my feet when wearing flip flops in the garden and back yard-----bite free. The bottle I used was over a year old and it still worked. In Calgary I bought it at Wal Mart.
Just arrived back from a paddle/portage trip into Quetico Park Boundary Waters in Ontario, Cabada.
The flies weren't bad, but the mosquitos on the portages and at dusk were brutal...almost deafening at dusk. A few sprays of this on exposed areas prior to portaging amd at dusk kept the little critters at bay for the entire time.
Other members of our crew sustained numerous bites, but not after using this bug spray.
I finally used the repellent a few weeks ago at Petit Jean State Park in central Arkansas. First trip there, so don't know how bout the little bugers are. However, I covered myself twice during the course of the day, and don't recall a single bite or suprisingly a single tick. Extremely satisfied. Will be using again next weekend.
great product. perfect for a boundary waters trip...the stuff is powerful, but you dont have to lug around a giant can. i was on a 5 day trip and had some left over.
Does what it says. I've used this in Southern and Northern Utah.
