Most Effective Bug Spray

They say that the maximum effectiveness of deet is in the 30% range. I would tend to disagree based on experience. When I'm in the deep woods during the hatch I always bring Bens 100 Max. It isn't 100% effective, but the 100% Deet gives me piece of mind when the black flies, gnats, no see-ums, mosquitos, and ticks are biting like crazy. I get less bites with Bens 100 than any other bug spray.

This stuff is killer! (to the skeeters)

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Weekend comes rollin' round and you make a B-Line for the backcountry. pun intended... Nothing is better in my opinion than going out to the backyard of the US of A. However, the difference between making the memories for the right reasons can be remembered for all the wrong reasons. This stuff is as legit as it comes. Don't let your memories be ruined by annoying bugs. Bens is the first on my gear list, as it should be on yours. So go out and enjoy what our country has to offer and live it up!

Best bug repellent around

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used this on multiple adventure races in the heart of bug infested north east forests and not once was bothered by anything. I'm sure this much deet isn't good for you but if I'm going to be in the woods for over 24hrs without sleep I at least don't want to be bothered by flys and mosquitoes.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really only purchased this because of how small the container was. I usually buy the 30% Deet but this was more of a necessity from from complaining all weekend. My husband would highly recommend!

if you need the best repellant

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

100 is great but it probably isn't the best for your body. It Repels like crazy and does great job. I tend to only use it on cloths around leg openings and hats. for skin contact I will use a lower concentration like 30.

Saved me.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm allergic to mosquito bites, like it can get pretty bad sometimes. I took this to Canada where I was camping by a river, there was still water in places and only got bit once the entire week. Usually I attract mosquitoes like crazy, but this seemed to do the trick.

Dem Bugs

Works like a charm, just don't get it in your mouth or you will hate your life for hours.

Anybody ever encounter stable flies while...

Anybody ever encounter stable flies while using this stuff? Does it keep them off?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes I have. DEET is gnarly, but it works. Also, if you look closely at the photo of the product packaging, Stable Flies are listed 2nd from the bottom. A little bit goes a long way.

it works!

This stuff has been proven to work. It takes a very little amount to repel mosquitos... and it lasts. I've had the same bottle for months.

Strong Stuff

Bens works really well i use it for trail running usually bugs are in your face the whole run but after a couple sprays of this they are gone

Erroneous information

I work for the DEET Education Program, Washington DC, and the reviewer who says DEET is a carcinogen is incorrect. Additionally, DEET does not kill mosquitoes or ticks and is not an insecticide for that reason. The American Academy of Pediatrics guidance says that DEET-based products can be used in concentrations up to 30% by children as young as two months of age. This conveys the high level of confidence that the medical/scientific community has in DEET-based products. DEET has been an active ingredient in repellents for more than 50 years. When used as directed, it can be used with confidence. Questions? Call me at 800-789-3300.

Good Shtuff

Used Ben's 100 Max on my yearly camping road-trip with my friends and this is by far the best insect repellent we've ever used. we usually have problems with the biters, but once we spray this stuff on the biters are nowhere to be found. great product.

Ben's 100

AMK President Chris Gubera gives the run-down on Ben's 100 Max DEET - a maximum-strength formula that offers 10 hours of protection for when bugs are at their worst.

companion akin to a dog

goes every where with me, I have worked many years on the Commercial fishing boats in Alaska, as well as more than a few in the bush. Not having Ben's in those situation is like getting your right arm cut off.

Bugs? What Bugs?

This stuff has served me well from the buggy and occasionally muggy Catskills to Mosquito Central, (AKA West Virginia). I've not been bitten, or gotten ticks on me. I absolutely hate mosquitos, and ticks, so this works super well! Just a fair warning, DEET is NOT good for nylon, so don't use it around your climbing gear!

works great but melts items

Used the first day in Katmai NP (mosquito central). Worked wonderfully but smelled a bit and we didn't care to absorb DEET for 2 weeks. Tried the All Terrain Herbal Armour and LOVED it. Kept the mosquitos and white socks from eating us alive and was safe around drysuit valves, tents and expensive puffy layers. Will keep on hand for backup.

i HATE mosquitoes and ticks

..and that is why I love 100 max Deet. For some reason I'm that guy that has a swarm of mosquitoes molesting me on the trail, trying to drain the life out of me, while my friends are not bothered one bit. Ben's saves the day, and I greatly appreciate that.

It's 100% DEET, what else do you need to know?

This stuff does as advertised, it spurts out DEET and that keeps (most) of the mosquitoes off. Alaskan mosquitoes are a special breed, so I expected a less than 100% avoidance success rate. My only complaint is that the pump action is more of a stream than a spray, so you can get wasteful if you're spraying on your clothes as it just gets spots rather than a wider area. For skin you can just spray on your hands and rub.

Responded on

I was hoping to find a northern persons view. On my last few trips in the Ontario backwoods, The current favs of Deepwoods and Off did not seem to do anything. I need to find a stronger formula. Remember the old squirt bottles of Muskol? Get that stuff close to your mouth, and your lips went numb.. Never got a bite then, and I lived in Labrador

Good stuff

Best repellent ever! I use this at all ball games and never have any mosquitos any where around me in the field. It lasts for hours, so only one application is usually needed.
