Safe for the whole family, Sawyer 20% Picaridin Premium Insect Repellent lotion is effective against flies, ticks, and mosquitoes - including the Zika-transmitting Aedes Aegypti (Yellow Fever Mosquito). Consumer Reports reviewed Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent as Sawyer "Fisherman's Formula" Picaridin Insect Repellent in its list of safe and effective insect repellents (February 2016). The 2-ounce Picaridin lotion provides sufficient coverage for most people. Small enough for carrying in a pocket, purse, or backpack, that is great for everyday use, travel, hiking and backpacking, daycare facilities, schools, and working in the field. The long-lasting topical lotion with 20 percent Picaridin is effective for up to 14 hours against mosquitoes and ticks, and it provides up to 8 hours of protection against biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies. It offers effective protection against disease carrying nuisances like mosquitoes carrying Zika and ticks carrying Lyme Disease. The non-greasy lotion has a pleasant low odor that evaporates when dry and won't damage plastics or synthetic coatings. Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered one of the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries.
