More on Mosquitos

As the colder weather hits us, many Canadians head South to warmer climates for vacations. It's important to think about protection from Mosquitos. A new study that has come out gives further insight into what works and what doesn't ( )
What they found was that the DEET repellents worked well (Repel 100, OFF Deep Woods VIII, Cutter Skinsations) for 4 hours of protection.

Cutter lemon eucalyptus was as good as Repel 100.

Cutter Natural, EcoSmart organic, Mosquito skin patch and Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard repellents barely lasted a few minutes if at all.

Interestingly Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil showed a medium range repellent effect for 2 hours.

Even more surprising was Victoria Secret Bombshell perfume showed a very significant effect for 2 hours.

Stay smart and stay protected.
