Safe for the whole family, Sawyer 20% Picaridin Premium Insect Repellent spray and lotion is effective against flies, ticks, and mosquitoes – including the Zika-transmitting Aedes Aegypti (Yellow Fever Mosquito). Consumer Reports reviewed Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent as Sawyer “Fisherman’s Formula” Picaridin Insect Repellent in its list of secure and effective insect repellents (February 2016).
The long-lasting, fragrance-free Sawyer Picaridin-based insect repellent can also be applied to your skin in addition to clothing, outdoor gear, and more. It offers effective protection against disease carrying nuisances like mosquitoes carrying Zika and ticks carrying Lyme Disease. It is also effective at repelling biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies.
The non-greasy spray and lotion have a pleasant low odor that evaporates when dry and would possibly not damage plastics or synthetic coatings. Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent is secure to be used on clothing, backpacks, synthetic fabrics, watches, sunglasses, and more.
Maximize protection from mosquitoes and ticks by combining Picaridin with Sawyer’s Permethrin insect repellent for clothing, fabric, and gear.
