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. 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, packaged 50 to a box, packaged 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., and comes packaged in a cardboard box that can be mounted on a wall or placed on a counter top, making it easy to grab and go.
