After years of looking like I have chicken pox on my legs and arms I can definitely say that Smidge works.
Picaridin vs. DEET
Because they’re the most effective repellents, people often ask which is better. Here’s a quick comparison:
DEET: It’s considered the gold standard in terms of its effectiveness. It’s been used and studied more than any other repellent in human history, though it must be handled carefully because it can damage plastics (think sunglasses, trekking pole grips, etc.)
Picaridin: Though it’s been around for fewer decades, its efficacy is considered comparable to DEET for mosquitoes and ticks, and it works better on flies. Picaridin also has minimal odor and no damaging effect on plastics and other synthetics.
It smells ok - a lot better than some of the old 'DDT' type insect repellants that could have struck down a Red Deer at 5 paces that they used to sell.
It goes on like a facial moisturiser which, obviously being a man, I do not use!!!
I can't remember being bitten by a midge or a horsefly whilst using this stuff - although my daughter did bite me one year, when she was really small, and this stuff did not put her off!
Just a word of warning - only use it on the exposed parts of flesh when outside - I covered my whole body in it one day as an experiment and it even repelled my wife.... I think it was the Smidge?!?
And it feels like moisturiser so ye canny argue. Just remember to bring baby wipes too! We ate after we applied it, later on, and everything tasted like chemicals! Now I understand what the bugs go through! Almost literally got a taste of our own medicine 😂 also be careful not to rub your eyes etc. Pretty potent stuff but needs be.
It seemed to last for about 5 hours on a hard-ish walk around the wilderness, then I decided to reapply as I went through a humid gorge. (Walked over some remaining snow in July with a swarm around me!)
Not smelly like DEET, doesn't damage the plastic on your watch like DEET.
This has been highly effective against mosquitoes for me and doesn't have a horrible caustic smell.
Recommend trying it!
