I tried a number of natural bug repellants on my thru-hike last year
with success that was dependent upon how bad the bugs were. But when
the bugs got bad, I reached for the 100% Deet, along with many other
hikers I was with. It'll probably kill me someday (if something else
doesn't), but DEET works.
