For those sensitive to Deet, look into catnip oil. I used this on a two week trip to Belize, one week spent in the rain forest and one week sailing. I never got one bite. It is pretty smelly, though. I buy the straight essential oil online.

Here we go again. This is the exact sort of horse**** that drew my original article.

Peterson put groups of 20 mosquitoes in a two-foot glass tube, half of which was treated with nepetalactone. After 10 minutes, only an average of 20 percent about four mosquitoes remained on the side of the tube treated with a high dose (1.0 percent) of the oil.

In other words nowhere near the efficacy. Just as DEET isn't good enough (never mind the bugs that ignore it, and presumably ignore this too.)

I'm very, very tired of the eco-weenie horse**** nonsense. Consider yourself flagged.
