There is an alternative to Deet, which I find actually works better. On the Sawyer website: Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent 20% Picaridin - 3 oz spray 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. Picaridin is 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.
I used it in Kenya and Tanzania last summer without a problem and worked as advertised in keeping away mosquitoes and other biting insects.
