so after doing some research, most reports show that 30 - 50 percent deet will protect for 3 - 6 hours. 100 percent deet will protect for up to 12 hours. The only down side to deet is its a solvent and can destroy plastic. Overall it seems that 30 percent deet is all you really need.
Okay I have used all kinds of bug spray from Off Skintastic, 100% Deet, and my friend even has some organic stuff that smells like at Citronella candle.
