How much mosquito repellent to pack for a month?

Jump to last reply

I've never bothered to bring mosquito repellent on trips, but since we're going to be in Bali, Laos and Vietnam for over a month, I know I'd better this time.

The thing is, I don't know how much per adult would be wise to pack. I just don't know how fast we'll go through the stuff!

We'll be arriving the beginning of October, spending 17 days in Bali (Ubud, Permuteran, Munduk, a week in Laos (driving Vientiane-Vang Vieng-Luang Prabang), and a week in Vietnam (Hanoi and the Ninh Binh area).

We'll also be spending almost a month in various parts of Australia, but aren't as concerned about that part of the trip, as malaria and dengue aren't an issue there. Plus it will be easier to pick up products there if we start to feel too bitten.

I'm thinking to bring pump-bottle spray with 25% Deet and also wipes to use on our faces, and when portability is needed. But how much?

I'm also wondering if anyone thinks it is a good idea to spray the mosquito nets over beds in hotel rooms with Permethrin?

Thanks for anyone who can give their opinion on this very specific question!
