Hi folks. Well, I know it's winter, but prior planning is always a good idea. What is the best insect repellent for Scottish/UK use? I get eaten alive every summer. I did research the medical literature on this a year ago, and found nearly all the research has been done on Anopheles (malaria) mosquitos rather than the Scottish midge. One Scottish study found Mosiguard (natural ingredients) possibly slightly better than DEET. DEET appears best for mosquitos. I don't like DEET much - it never works for me and irritates. I think the British Army stuff is DEET and on one exercise I was stupid enough to put it on my Tam O Shanter and it dripped in my eyes every time it rained after that.... I've seen some Scandinavian product on the Woodlore website, and also seen a WW2 era product called DiMP. So far I've found Autan best, but I've heard its formulation has changed. Any ideas?
