An insect repellent (also commonly called "bug spray") is a substance applied to skin, clothing, or other surfaces which discourages insects (and arthropods in general) from landing or climbing on that surface.
Usage / Dose Instructions
Do not spray directly onto face. Instead, spray in hands and apply an even layer to face, avoiding eyes and lips. The insect repellent spray should be reapplied every 4-5 hours and after swimming. When using the insect repellent spray in combination with sun protection, apply insect repellent first and let dry completely before applying sunscreen.
The most effective insect repellents include DEET, Picardin, BioUD, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus and IR3535. These active ingredients are found in EPA-registered skin-applied insect repellents.
