Picaridin is a promising new insecticide; its effect is similar to DEET, yet it is safer on gear and equipment than DEET. At 20%, this long lasting topical insect repellent is effective up to 8 hours against mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies, gnats, chiggers and fleas. Safe for use on the whole family, Picaridin is also more effective at repelling biting flies than DEET.
Our 20% Picaridin is virtually odorless. It has a mild citrus scent added to it which quickly evaporates away.
Unlike an aerosol, Sawyer’s BOV (bag on valve) continuous spray contains no propellants, so you get more repellent and limit the propellants in the environment. It also sprays in all directions.
