Does anyone like the smell of DEET? Have you ever had it etch holes in your expensive watch band or nylon gear? Did you know that some DEET products contain plasticizers? Did you know there was an alternative to DEET, that can be safely applied to the skin and does not damage clothing or gear?
The Ranger Ready Scent Zero Picaridin Insect Repellent is safe to use for children (over 1 year), adults, and during pregnancy. It has the faint scent of hand sanitizer and is nongreasy. The quick-dry formula won’t damage clothing or gear. It uses the active ingredient Picaridin 20% and contains NO DEET. It will protect you for 12 hours against ticks and mosquitos and 8 hours against gnats, flies, fleas, chiggers, no see ums, and more. 5.0 oz will give you 45 full-body application spray doses.
