Sawyer Insect Repellents
There are four types of insect repellents to use when protecting people from flying
or biting insects such as mosquitoes, gnats, ticks,
fleas, punkies, sand flies, no-see-ums, chiggers: 95% DEET,
Controlled Release DEET Lotion and
Composite Spray are formulated for spraying
on your skin; Permethrin Spray is
formulated for spraying on your clothing.
- Maxi DEET - In areas of extreme
bug density or other extreme conditions you can rely on this 95% Deet spray for
application to clothing or head nets. The Controlled Release formula eliminates the need
to use 100% Deet on the skin.
Pocket size, 2 ounce container.

Release Lotion w/ DEET - The most significant improvement in Insect Repellents since the
advent of Deet, one application of Controlled Release formula can be effective for up to
20 hours against mosquitoes and 17 hours against ticks. Controlled Release is the new
technology in Insect Repellents which will change the way you use insect repellents.
Order Controlled Release Lotion
Spectrum Composite Spray - While Deet can repel
all mosquitoes, ticks, and some flies, Deet does not repel all flies effectively. For
those situations you will need the extra protection of the special fly repellent, R-326,
which is added to this formula and is effective against flies, gnats and no-see-ums. For
times when sprays are more convenient than lotions, this is the formula to use. Sawyer's
Broad Spectrum contains no alcohol which has been shown to increase skin absorption of
Deet, and is the only non-alcohol spray repellent in the USA.
AT THIS TIME
- Permethrin - This is a contact insecticide. That is, it kills ticks or other
insects when it comes in contact with them. It is used on clothing and materials. As a
treatment for clothing, Sawyer Permethrin does not harm fabrics and is odorless when
dried. Use by itself or with skin applied repellents to build the ultimate protective
barrier. A contact insecticide, Permethrin is non-toxic to humans. When used at
"military specifications," Permethrin remains effective for up to 52 weeks and
yields significant spatial repellency.
