Sawyer Premium Controlled Release Insect Repellent significantly reduces the rate of DEET absorption by 67% per application, and extends the duration of its effectiveness. And at a safe level of 20% DEET, their Family Friendly formula controls the evaporation of DEET, allowing it to safely protect you all day, in the backcountry or in the backyard.
Available in 0.5 oz and 4 oz. Sawyer Picaridin Insect Repellent has a similar effect to DEET, yet it won’t harm gear and equipment. Picaridin repels mosquitoes and ticks like DEET but it also repels biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnat, chiggers, and sand flies.
For areas of extreme bug density, you can rely on this 100% DEET spray for application to skin, clothing, and mosquito or head nets. Sawyer’s exclusive low-odor DEET formula protects exposed skin areas against mosquitoes, chiggers, fleas, gnats and ticks and the diseases they carry.
For use on clothing, tents, and other gear, Sawyer Permethrin not only repels insects, but actually kills ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites, and more than 55 other kinds of insects on contact. The active ingredient Permethrin is a synthetic molecule similar to pyrethrum which is taken from the Chrysanthemum flower.
This Liposome-based repellent is the newest advancement in insect repellent technology. Liposome envelops the active ingredient, DEET, and slowly time-releases it as needed, thereby extending the effectiveness of the repellent. Comfortable, trusted protection, in the backcountry or in the backyard.
