Mosquito repellants whicwork best !!

Jump to last reply

Consumer Reports rates the following 4 as the best in deterring mossie bites.
Anyone have experience with these and which are your favorites for use in Africa.

#1 OFF Deep Woods Sportsman II.....30%deet
#2 Cutter Backwoods Unscentred....23% deet
#3 Off Family Care Smooth and Dry...15% deet
#4 3M Ultrathon Insect Repellant....25% deet

They all give 8 hour protection.

Cutter Back Woods leaves little scent or sensation.
Off Deep Woods has citrusy odor and filmy residue.
Off Family Care has fruity odor and dries quickly.
3 M Ultrathon has strong odor and leaves oily feeling on skin at first.

Consumer's says that no-one needs a repellant with more than 30% deet.
Also, avoid products that mix sunscreen with deet.

I would be partial to the Cutter Back Woods product due to no scent & not oily.

Looking forward to comments/thoughts regarding these repellants.
