Having been savaged by mosquitoes in the past my wife and I wanted to take no chances. Using this in conjunction with Malerone tablets, we have survived 12 days in a Malaria risk area unscathed. However, we weren't aware of the presence of any mosquitos so we can't be sure if it was due to the repellent or the absence of mosquitoes. We also couldn't tell the difference between 50% and 100%. I would use it again if only for the peace of mind.

Stinks of petrol for about 20 seconds then it's totally odourless. Must stink for mossies for hours and hours cos they haven't been near. Fantastic

Our holiday is due...and we won't be using the Deet until we get to Malaysia. Sorry, cannot comment on the product, as yet. However, although the contents were very well packed, one of the aerosols had leaked in transit....what a mess! The other one was ok.

For value and fast service I would highly recommend buying this product from HOME & ABOUT. Our 3 weeks in Cambodia should be mozzie bite free at a fraction of what the same product in Boots costs. Not used it yet but DEET is DEET in whatever bottle it comes and is necessary for protection against malaria and other mosquito born diseases.

I use this type of product for six months of the year. This does the job well and lasts a long time when applied by hand. Excellent value for money.

Brilliant repellent. I bough this concentration to use on my kids. Worked really well and caused no discomfort, was great to not have to worry about mosquitoes at all for the whole two week we were there!

DEET is a brilliant product and i was not disappointed with Aquatech DEET. Kept the mosquitoes away for the whole time when I was in Thailand.
Would recommend using home and about.
