[pct-l] A replacement for DEET? (Here, kitty kitty)

Dick in Stehekin says:

essentialoil in catnip that gives the plant its
characteristic odor, is about tentimes more effective
at repelling mosquitoes than DEET

I can just picture it. Tie a piece of catnip around
your neck, and you won't have to swat the skeeters.
You'll also increase the miles hiked since you'll be
running away from a 120-pound cat.
