What is DEET?

DEET is the active chemical ingredient in most insect repellents available in the United States.
It is used to repel such biting insects as mosquitoes and ticks including ticks that may carry Lyme Disease.

How Much DEET Should I look for?

Generally, the higher the percentage of DEET, the longer the repellent works

Higher concentrations of DEET are recommended for activities that keep you outside all day in geographic regions with large populations of insects and ticks
