Insect repellents, such as BugX30, which contain Deet, have been shown to be the most effective in repelling mosquitoes and ticks, and provide the highest level of protection against vector-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease and those caused by the Aedes mosquito like West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, and Zika Virus. This recently reformulated water-based insect repellent reduces the percentage of Deet to 30 percent from 55 percent and provides more than 7 hours of protection in a convenient towelette application. Deet concentrations higher than 30 percent are no longer recommended to increase the length of protection.

This improved formulation allows the Deet to be time-released, permitting longer lasting performance once obtained only by higher concentrations of Deet. This water-based formula is virtually greaseless and non-staining, with very little odor. Each foil pack, which comes 100 to the box, contains one 8 in. x 5 in. towelette saturated with 7.8 grams of 30 percent Deet insect repellent.
