Recent Insect Repellent Reviews

All Terrain Herbal Armor

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is the only DEET-free bug spray I have found that is effective against the mosquitos and ticks in New England. However, it doesn't work well as you head farther south down the coast. I don't remember exactly when I first discovered Herbal Armor, but it is now the only insect repellant I carry when I'm in New England. It is, however, one of the few pieces of gear that I only carry in certain regions. While it has served me well on hikes throughout New England, it has failed me miserably every… Full review

Sawyer Permethrin Premium Insect Repellent

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy to use and long lasting this bug treatment really works. If you visit buggy areas or are concerned about ticks at home or on trail this stuff is peace of mind in a bottle Designed to be used to pretreat clothing and gear to repel ticks, chiggers, mites and mosquitoes this product works as advertised.  After one full season of use I am convinced of the effectiveness of Sawyer's permethrin and will keep using it so long as that remains the fact. Application is simply a matter of waiting for… Full review

UCO Citronella Candles

rated 5 of 5 stars Effective power in a small package! Mini and Micro Candle Lanterns offer 3-4 hours of burn time per candle. Citronella oil is mixed into the paraffin and the scent is released as the candle burns creating a natural insect repellent. This 6-pack of Citronella tealight candles will provide you with approximately 18-24 hours of light. Very effective in keeping insects away from sight for many hours. Full review

BugButton SuperBand

rated 1 of 5 stars Does not work in the least. Went camping and like an idiot I purchased 10 buttons and 8 bracelets instead of spray. Now I am paying the price and lots of itch cream. They don't work at all. I even witnessed mosquitos biting me right beside the buttons and all around the bracelets as well. Lesson learned. Full review

Duration Permethrin

rated 5 of 5 stars No more bugs...No more DEET...just that simple! So Duration is the first product I have given a 5-star review (I even went to the trouble to list it because I'm that impressed!). I try to withhold this rating for products which excel beyond all my expectations...and the Duration permethrin concentrate did just that. Put simply...this product helped me resolve my longstanding battle against insects...and given that I spend nearly my entire summers along rivers and in wetlands...that's high praise! Full review

Repel 100 Pump Spray

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Basic upper tier bug repellant that for a low price and handy size, is a must for anyone not wanting to get too many mosquito bites. I bought the Repel 100% Deet, 14 ml size as a backpacking spray while I was out in heavy mosquito territory. Now I usually wear long pants and shirts, but since it was the middle of summer, I hoped that short sleeves would be alright in usage with this repellant. At 100%, its supposed to be as good as it gets right? To sum it up, it works, but not as well as anticipated. Full review

3M Ultrathon 33 Insect Repellent Sponge Applicator

rated 2 of 5 stars A bug repellent in a little package, with a lot of promise, that ultimately turned into a lot of disappointment. If you want to lose ten bucks and gain a few dozen bug bites, this one's for you. Otherwise, stick to the spray-applicated repellents. I read a recent review of this that painted it in a pretty positive light. While stocking up on supplies at REI before a recent trip, I picked up a bottle of this and spared myself fifteen-minutes'-worth of comparison shopping in the insect repellent aisle. Full review

3M Ultrathon 33 Insect Repellent Sponge Applicator

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Most effective, longest lasting insect repellent I've ever used. Period. It says; "Lasts 8 to 12 hours." And it actually does! I've spent thousands of hours in horrifying mosquito, blackfly, and no-see-um territories, and I've used every brand, every chemical or natural concoction ever to grace a store shelf. (Literally, not figuratively; I've tried EVERYTHING.) Some stuff works for a little while, some stuff lasts a little while longer, some stuff shouldn't even be allowed to call itself "insect… Full review

Coghlan's Citronella Candle

rated 4 of 5 stars These candles do a pretty good job. Not perfect, but the better of the tea light size Citronella candles out there. They do have a strong Citronella scent (which you want) so I suggest packing them in a zip lock bag or something similar. Full review
