This EPA registered formula follows the suggestion from CDC to reduce the amount of DEET concentration in insect repellents. This newly approved EPA formula allows the DEET to be released in a more controlled and measured manner, permitting longer lasting performance, once obtained only by high concentrations of DEET. This new water base formula is Non-Greasy, Non-Staining, Low Odor, Water, and Sweat Resistant. Bug X 30 Insect Repellent has all the claims necessary for a compliant skin protection program plus the packaging that makes it affordable (towelette and spray) to meet every application. Bug X 30 is EPA registered in all 50 states. Bug X 30 Insect Repellent with 30% DEET is effective for 7+ hours of protection against Mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, fleas, gnats, red bugs, no-see-ums, sand fleas, biting flies, deer flies, stable flies, and black flies.
