Are you looking for the best insect repellent? In this video, we will top insect repellents
on the market. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best insect repellents, we have included links in the description for each product
mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which is in your budget range. Starting off at number 1 we have OFF! Deep Woods Insect Repellent 6 ounce. If you live need a wooded area or are holidaying
in a hot and humid climate where insects like to breed, OFF! Deep Woods Insect Repellant will work wonders
at keeping those nasty biting insects away from your skin. OFF! gives you very good protection from mosquitoes,
ticks, biting flies, gnats, and chiggers – all of those annoying, and sometimes dangerous
insects, that seem to be hell-bent on making your life miserable. The aerosol spray allows for easy application
and gives you good coverage and it is quick drying. The repellent is not waterproof, so you have
to reapply after swimming, but it is designed to resist perspiration, so you do not have
to reapply if you sweat a lot. Although it has a light pine smell, some people
may find the odor a little overpowering. OFF! contains 25% DEET as it prime active
agent and 75% of other ingredients, and it can provide up to 8 hours of continuous protection
against mosquitoes. It can be applied directly to the skin, but
you have to apply the repellent generously to your skin to get a good level of protection. The product can be sprayed on your clothes,
but if you spray the repellent too close to the material it may leave a white residue
on your clothes. If the spray does leave a white residue on
your clothes, you can remove it by brushing it off or washing your clothing. To maximize the effectiveness of the repellent,
you need to shake the can before use. Off! comes in a very handy two-pack so you
can take one away on vacation and use the second one at home. At number 2 we have the Repel 100 1-Ounce
Pump Spray Insect Repellent. Repel 100 contains the highest concentration
of DEET, at 98.11%, which makes it highly effective at repelling insects, especially
mosquitoes that can irritate your skin and transmit lethal diseases like Dengue Fever
and the Zika virus. So if you are planning a tropical island escape
or want to explore the rainforests of Costa Rica, Repel 100 is the best insect repellent
for you. The repellent comes in a portable 1-ounce
pump spray bottle that makes it very handy for traveling. You do not have to use a lot of the spray
as a “little goes a long way” and it provides that much-needed protection from mosquito
bites for up to 10 hours. The spray does not feel sticky on your skin
and the smell is not overpowering, but make sure that you apply it in a well-ventilated
area. You can also spray the repellent on your clothes,
but be careful when you apply it as it can leave a stain. Repel is easy to apply and the bottle has
a safety flip-top cap. At number 3 we have the Sawyer Products Premium
Maxi-DEET Insect Repellent. For a highly effective insect repellent spray
against mosquitoes and ticks, Sawyer Products Premium Maxi-DEET repellent is a great choice. The repellent contains 98.11% DEET, which
gives you very good protection in extreme insect infested environments for up to 10
hours. Maxi-DEET is not effective at repelling flies,
but Sawyer Products make a lotion repellent, Sawyer Products Premium Insect Repellent with
20% Picaridin, which is ideal for repelling mosquitoes and flies. Maxi-DEET can be applied to your skin and
clothing, and it is material friendly towards clothes that are made out of cotton, wool,
or nylon, but it should not be sprayed on synthetic materials like rayon, spandex, and
leather. It should not be applied near acetate or painted
and varnished surfaces like furniture. Sawyer’s repellent is the ideal choice for
when you want to travel light and backpack in tropical areas as it comes in a 4-ounce
bottle, and it has a low odor. You can also choose from a 2-ounce, 3-ounce,
and a 4-ounce continuous spray. The pump spray allows for easy application
and all you have to do is just spritz on a small amount and watch it go to work. As well as making repellents for personal
use, Sawyer Products also make a Permethrin Spray that can be used for complete clothing
and camping gear protection. The only downside of using Sawyer Products
Maxi-DEET repellent is that it may not be ideal for people who have sensitive skin,
so try a “spot-test” first. At number 4 we have the Natrapel 12-Hour 6-ounce
Insect Repellent Continuous Spray. If you are looking for an oil-free and DEET-free
insect repellent that has a pleasant odor, Natrapel Continuous Spray is a very good choice. The pump spray uses Picaridin instead of DEET
and it provides excellent protection against disease-carrying mosquitoes, ticks, and other
biting insects. So whether you are on an African safari or
working in your garden at home, Natrapel can keep you free from mosquitoes and ticks for
up to 12 hours, and other biting insects like gnats and sand flies for up to 8 hours. The repellent can be sprayed directly onto
your skin and it provides an even application, or you can spray it on your clothes without
any staining. Remember to shake the can well before application
to make sure it comes out in a continuous spray instead of an oily stream. And at number 5 we have the Skedattle Natural
Insect Repellent. An all-natural insect repellent, the Skedattle
Natural Insect Repellent will have those nasty biting and stinging insects skedaddling for
the hills. Skedattle is a great choice if you are worried
about spraying chemicals on your skin as the repellent is a biodegradable and environmentally
friendly spray that is made from a combination of citronella, lemongrass, peppermint, and
vanillin. These ingredients are a good deterrent for
mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas, and the spray has a pleasant smell. Although Skedattle is not recommended as a
“regular” insect repellent, its slimline design means it is a good choice for when
you are traveling and need some quick protection from insects. As well as using it for personal use, it can
also be used around your home. Skedattle doubles as a bug deterrent and as
an air freshener. Just add a few drops to your essential oil
diffuser or spray it on the door frames every few weeks for overall insect protection. Skedattle is available in a portable 2-ounce
bottle and an 8-ounce bottle, or you can choose to stock up for your next vacation as it also
comes in a handy 4-pack of 2-ounce bottles. So that sums up the top insect repellents. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
