Insect repellents which contain Deet, such as BugX30, have been shown to be the most effective in repelling mosquitoes and ticks, while providing the highest level of protection against vector-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease and those caused by the Aedes mosquito like West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, and Zika Virus. This recently reformulated water-based insect repellent reduces the percentage of Deet to 30 percent from 55 percent and provides more than 7 hours of protection in a convenient towelette application. Deet concentrations higher than 30 percent are no longer recommended to increase the length of protection.
This improved formulation allows the Deet to be time-released, permitting longer lasting performance once obtained only by higher concentrations of Deet. This water-based formula is virtually greaseless and non-staining, with very little odor. Each foil pack in this 25 count box contains one 8 in. x 5 in. towelette containing 7.8 grams of 30 percent Deet formula.
This product is made in the U.S.A.

I like them because they work and so easy to pack.....even in a small bicycle bag.
One towel goes a long way. I shared it with others because we were out on the trail. GREAT JOB!!!!
Took a supply of towelettes to Monovia, Liberia, a few years ago. Sure took care of me (yes, there are mosquitoes there in the evening). Gave some extras to the folks who live there. The ladies particularly liked that they did not stain clothing or smell bad.
Was on a 17 day Safari in Tanzania and Zanzibar and used this product along the way. All the other 15 travelers borrowed
from me and all were most impressed because it was not a spray.
