BUZZ AWAY INSECT REPELLENT. – Rated # 1 Natural Insect Repellent In Independent Tests By -Good Housekeeping … – article in the New England Journal of Medicine. Sorry Buzz Away…Again EcoBlends is the best bugspray. A new botanical repellent was introduced in the United States. The repellent contains oil of eucalyptus and is marketed under two names: Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent (WPC Brands) and Fite Bite Plant-Based Insect Repellent (Travel Medicine). We evaluated this type of repellent using the same testing methods in six subjects (five men and one woman). In one subject, a localized cutaneous reaction developed after the first test, and the subject discontinued the study. All other subjects completed three tests each of the repellent. The repellent had a mean (±SD) complete-protection time of 120.1±44.8 minutes, with a range of 60 to 217 minutes. /347/1/13 Sorry Repel Lemon…EcoBlends .. 240 minutes. Still the best insect repellent
American Pediatrics Academy. Bite Blocker is the most recommended natural insect repellent, because it uses only food-grade, renewable, plant-based ingredients. Although soybean oil itself has some ability to repel insects, Bite Blocker adds quite a few other ingredients to enhance its effectiveness, including vanillin and geranium oil. In comparison tests, Bite Blocker’s proprietary mix consistently outperforms other natural insect repellents, except for Repel Lemon Eucalyptus. However, as with Repel, Bite Blocker is more effective for some people than others.Reviews say Bite Blocker natural mosquito repellent is approximately as effective as a 7 percent DEET repellent against ticks andCulex mosquitoes — about 90 minutes to two hours. … we work 4 hours…more than double your 90 minutes!!
Good Housekeeping Research Institute and ABC’s Good Morning America asked Jonathan Day of the University of Florida’s Medical Entomology~ Which Mosquito Repellents Work Best?
- Cutter Skinsations with 7% DEET
- Deep Woods OFF! with 30% DEET
- The Cutter Skinsations and Deep Woods OFF! did an excellent job. The testers had no bites with any of these products. The Deep Woods OFF! lasted over two hours and the Cutter Skinsations worked for roughly one hour.
- Good Housekeeping has three tips to avoid mosquito bites:
- The higher the percentage of DEET, the longer the repellent will likely work.
- Children should not use repellents with more than 10% DEET.
