Insect repellents, such as BugX30, which contain Deet, have been shown to be the most effective in repelling mosquitoes and ticks, and provide 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, which comes 100 to the box, contains one 8 in. x 5 in. towelette saturated with 7.8 grams of 30 percent Deet insect repellent.
This product is made in the U.S.A.

Very happy with the product. Convenient and effective.
We received one of these in a goody bag from a wedding in south Florida. These are great. They cover one body and they keep the mosquitos away.
Great product! Easy to travel with internationally. Effective, non greasy, minimal fragrance.
I use this product whenever the bugs are bad when I am camping or fishing or during any outdoor activity. The packets are easy to store and carry. After you apply BugX30 their is no greasy feeling and it does not smell bad. It is very effective in keeping biting insects away.
