Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mosquitos just bounce off I used this product on a six-day trek with the Boy Scouts through the boundary waters northern Minnesota. There were a few times that the mosquitoes were so sick that the whole forest sounded like one giant mosquito. While wearing Natrapel I didn't get one bite on any place that was covered with the spray. They would literally hit me and bounce off. My bottle of Natrapell soon became the most popular item in the camp. Every boy on the trek begged me to let him use it over and over. I sure was glad that I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable I camp often in the Southeast. In the woods in the summer, mosquitoes and ticks are everywhere. Fortunately this stuff really seems to work. I often miss a spot (usually on my ankles or feet, my own fault) and only ever get big bites where I missed with Natrapel. As long as I cover myself completely, I can walk away from our camping weekends with no bites, which is amazing because bugs seem to love me. This is very important to me because I am allergic to mosquito bites and will wake up itching from the bites for at least two days after I get one. I trust this product to work because it always does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our primary protection against mosquitos Is a deet based repellent more effective? Probably. But, I cant get my family to wear it consistently. They will, however, use Natrapel and we have found it to be effective, and we live in a malaria prone area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for most situations Works well for me repelling mosquitoes and flies. Only time it didn't was after a few days camping, and only on my feet (which were in sandals- damp and probably a bit smelly). They were apparently too attractive to the flies with only this on. Probably as good as deet 90-95% of the time. I would say 4.5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't wreck my stuff We joke in Minnesota that mosquitos are the state bird. I welt up badly from bug bites, so I do not mess around with bug sprays that don't work; however, I prefer something that is not so toxic and doesn't break down the fabric of my clothes. I found Natrapel to be very effective in keeping off the mosquitos and ticks, seems to be far less toxic that DEET, and doesn't wreck my stuff. I actually like the pump spray, and I didn't think I would. This is my new go-to for repellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as Off I buy this stuff all the time. I keep one in the car, one in my backpack. Not perfect, but works as good as anything else I've used. #1 choice when I want something that doesn't have DEET in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good for Natural I have used this on backpacking trips. Mosquitoes really seem to find me one way or the other. I wouldn't say that it lasts for 8hrs, but that is just for me. I typically find myself applying it within a 4hr range especially if I am in an area where the bugs are really bad. I love it because it's safe for clothes and it smells good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My choice for bug spray This stuff doesn't kill bugs, but it does tend to keep all the annoying flying ones at bay. Smells as pleasant as a bug spray can and isn't greasy like DEET. It doesn't last 8 hours, but no bug spray does. The little spray bottle is easy to carry & use. I've purchased this before - and will buy it again.

Questions & Answers

The CDC recommends products with DEET to protect from the mosquito that carries the Zika Virus. Does Natrapel offer the same protection so I can avoid using DEET?

Asked by: golfer1
I've had MUCH better results with Picaridin than I ever had with DEET. Use this and treat your clothes with Permethrin and you'll be as protected as you can ever be.

Can you apply sunscreen below or on top of this? Approximately how many applications does 3.4oz last? I plan to treat my clothes (long sleeve and long pants) with Permethrin so I assume I would only need to apply this to my hands, ankles, face and neck.

Asked by: EL123
Yes, you can use Natrapel and sunscreen at the same time. The CDC recommends applying sunscreen first and then the repellent. The Natrapel lasts for 8 hours. Given that you are only applying the repellent to your hand and ankles, 3.4 ounces will go a long way.

Is this meant to be applied only to skin or does it work on clothing as well. I am not bothered by mosquitos I am mainly looking to repel Ticks. Does this repel ticks?

Asked by: Lili
This insect repellent is meant to be applied to skin. It is not recommended for clothing. Permethrin is the best choice for clothing. This spray is effective against ticks.
