I want to know how poisonous it is for me to use. Get a thermometer type scale and put Deet etc at the top and pure/natural at the bottom. I have tons of them, because we live in a forest. The No-see-ums need to be added to your mosquito side. They are growing in number and hurt faster and longer than a mosquito bite. They carry disease as well – and they will bite 20 bites in a few seconds. Females need blood to help their eggs. Only females bite but there are many of them and the bites show up nearly immediately. Babies, young children will be covered before you know it. They are at the beach, forests, and everywhere in the world except Antarctica. We are well-educated into the types of repellents on the market, and some in Europe as well. I, too, don’t like the small print, so your idea is good, just make it better and more meaningful. By the way, we wear the Off little battery operated fan that is a repellent. Hard to believe, but it works great. The other day I had one on my shoulder and one on my waist while I was sitting outside. I got a No-see-um bite on my shoulder….. hmmm did the device not work?… nope, I forgot to turn it on. They don’t cost much, and ours have lasted 2 yrs so far and we use them May through Dec.
