Key Ingredients

• DEET (diethyl-m-toluamide) – an effective chemical developed by the Armed Forces to repel insects in the jungle.

Size: 500ml, 1L

DEET is an insect repellent that is used in products to prevent bites from insects such as mosquitoes, biting flies, fleas and small flying insects. DEET is a colorless liquid that has a faint odor and does not dissolve easily in water. DEET was developed by the U.S. Army in 1946 for protection of soldiers in insect-infested areas.  

Scientists do not know exactly how DEET works on all insects. Some insects sense people by detecting the chemicals from our bodies and in the air that we breathe out. It has been shown that insects exposed to DEET are not able to locate a person or animal because they cannot detect them.

*BEST VALUE* I would recommend this as it’s great value.

 

Highly Recommended – Equine Magazine
Tester Val Williams said: ‘I am really excited about this product as it is an exceptionally good insect repellent. Some of our fields, which we use for our own horses, are near trees and water, so insects can be such a nuisance.

We first tried it when we went showing as the flies can really distract the horses when showing in the ring, and we found it to be very helpful indeed.

After this, when checking horses in the field, we took it with us and tried it on them. At the time, one of the Connemara fillies was being pestered by horse flies while having her feed so we sprayed her with the product, which she wasn’t keen on at first, but soon got used to it, especially as she had immediate relief from the flies.

We stood and watched for some time and it certainly worked. This is a product we will certainly not be without on the yard and in the horse box for shows.’
