Deter Insect Repellent® has been proven by independent laboratory testing to effectively repel biting insects for up to 6 hours. Deter Insect Repellent® has been well received in the golfing community. It offers effective natural protection for golfers looking for a safe alternative to DEET, and other chemical based repellents. The individually packaged towelettes are convenient to carry in golf bags or pockets. In addition to golf, Deter Insect Repellent® is safe and effective for all outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, boating, camping, backpacking and fishing.
“Deter Insect Repellent is very well suited for golfers,” explains Brad Zaro, President and CEO of Mariner Biomedical. “It provides safe long lasting protection against mosquitoes and other biting insects so they can focus on their game and not on unpleasant, and potentially dangerous, insect bites. It will also not damage valuable golf equipment, a serious problem with DEET containing products.”
Deter Insect Repellent’s unique patent pending formula was scientifically developed to ensure safe long term repellency against a wide range of biting insects. Tested in the laboratory and in extreme outdoor conditions it provides ultimate outdoor protection against mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, no-see-ums, biting flies and gnats. Deter contains a proprietary blend of 8 plant oils and plant derivatives that work together to provide enhanced repellency for an extended period of time.
All ingredients in Deter Insect Repellent® are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), and comply with EPA regulations as a minimal risk insecticide. Deter is biodegradable and environmentally safe. It does not contain any DEET, the active ingredient in many insect repellent products which research has shown presents health and environmental risks.
