Took this bug spray to Ecuador when I spent 10 days in the Amazon. While using this product, I was completely eaten alive. I'm sure, however, that this would work just fine for the insects that inhabit the good ole US of A. I would not recommend using in a tropical climate.
I was looking for a DEET alternative (do some research, DEET is a neurotoxin, among other harms). I tried this and it worked great. From my understanding, the active ingredient in this (picaridin) is much safer than DEET and is used heavily in the EU. I have also tried All Terrain Herbal Armor, which works as well but smells awful. I like to mix them together to amplify their effectiveness and dilute the crappy smell of the Herbal Armor. Now you know.
