what really works to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects

Patients often ask what really works to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects.

Physical barriers prevent insects from getting to the skin. For example, wearing full-length, loose-fitting clothing can keep insects off the skin...and wearing light-coloured clothes can make insects easier to spot before they reach uncovered areas.

DEET (Off! Deep Woods, etc) and icaridin work the best to repel insects.
