DEET has been shown to be one of the most effective insect repellents for mosquitoes and ticks. Some research have indicated that DEET can be dangerous in large doses. However, if the choice is to get bitten and risk the chance of disease or apply a little DEET, we always choose to be protected.

We used this product at the beach in Costa Rica where the mosquitoes were abundant and the bites were painful and swelled alarmingly. We particularly liked how easy it is to apply and that it is long lasting. It was one of the most effective repellents we tried, and also worked on no-see-ums, which were also abundant.

3M Ultrathon insect repellent was developed for the military to provide long lasting, time released protection against mosquitoes for up to 12 hours. Repels Ticks that may carry West Nile Virus and also mosquitoes, biting flies, chiggers, gnats, fleas and deer flies. Splash & Sweat Resistant.

Unique 3M Polymer Technology optimized to enhance the efficacy of DEET and provide time controlled release of DEET. Stable in Freeze/Thaw conditions. 5 year guarantee. Consistently rated as a top insect repellent by independent testing labs. Tested in the harshest conditions of South America.

Works longer with less DEET. Competitive products are alcohol based and when the alcohol evaporates you lose your protection. Ultrathon uses the time released technology to provide a longer lasting repellent.
