DEET is an insect repellent that's the perfect companion no matter where your travels may lead you.
DEET is available in lots of different strengths, so you can choose the ideal level of protection whether you're just spending time outside in your back garden or going on the tropical holiday of a lifetime.
If you're worried about insect bites and want to make sure that you and your family are protected, DEET bug spray could be exactly what you've been looking for.
Here at Chemist4U, we stock a wide range of DEET insect repellents, so you can find the perfect spray to keep those bugs away.
The WHO recommends that you should use solutions with 50% DEET when you’re travelling to areas where you are more likely to get bitten by insects.
This is because products with 50% DEET and higher will last for up to 12 hours.
In comparison, 20% formulas will only last for 1 – 3 hours and 30% formulas will last for up to 6 hours.
This means that you won’t need to reapply your insect repellent as often and it will stay effective for longer when you need it most.
DEET can be suitable for children over 2 months old, but you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using any of these products on children to assure their safety.
DEET can be used on your clothing and works well on clothing made from natural fibres.
Always follow the instructions that are included with your DEET insect repellent to make sure you’re using the right amount and be aware that applying repellents to clothing could result in stains.
Always cover up as much as you can when you’re in an area where insect bites and stings are a risk and don’t apply DEET to areas of skin that are covered by clothing.
DEET can be used if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, but you should always speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using insect repellents at this time.
If possible, you should avoid travelling to countries that have a risk of insect-borne diseases when you’re pregnant, unless absolutely essential.
