To get the best results from a repellent, you have to apply it properly. DEET-based repellents are the gold standard against which all others are measured. They come in a variety of pleasant-smelling, easy-to-use formulations that help prevent mosquito and tick bites more effectively than virtually anything else on the market today.
First, carefully read and follow label directions for the product you’re using. DEET-based repellents have an EPA registration number on the label*. For further information about repellent use, visit www.deetonline.org and www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/QA/insect_repellent.htm.
