Works brilliantly for me, midges and mosquitoes
on 16 September 2015
In July 2015 I went on a camping trip in Lapland, mosquitoes swarm around you there as midges do in Scotland. And with the sun never going down in July, the swarms last for most of the 'night' as well as all day. I'm someone who gets a lot of bites normally, about 20 in two days before I remembered I'd brought a bottle of this with me. I tried it all over the exposed skin including my hands. I then stood outside and watched the swarm form around me. A mosi came to land on my hand, and then backed off when it got to within 5cm of my skin. I tried proffering my hand again, it came in for another attempt and then backed off again! Kept trying it but no landing... Amazing stuff.
Seemed to last for about 5 hours on a hard-ish walk, then decided to reapply as I went through a humid gorge. (Walked over some remaining snow with a (non-biting) swarm around me!)
Not smelly like DEET, doesn't doesn't damage the plastic on your watch like DEET.
This is highly effective against mosquitoes and doesn't have a horrible caustic smell.
Recommend trying it!
