Effective Deet Concentrations

Postby larree0 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 3:05 pm

Now that the little skeeters are out up here in Oregon, I have a question about deet. I think I remember an article in Science News that testing showed that something in the 33% deet range was most effective. Does anyone have any info?

thanks
