Flea bites suck (pun intended) and because they can be very uncomfortable and aesthetically unappealing we are providing you with recommendations on flea repellent for humans. These little critters do their damage when they land on our skin and repellents provide temporary protection and should be used when going outdoors. If we can keep fleas off of us then there will never be any need for human flea treatments or regimens.
The following flea repellents are safe for humans and offer different benefits.
The first one is 3M Ultrathon. Ultrathon contains 34% Deet and lasts for up to 12 hours. The primary benefit or selling point of this particular 3M Ultrathon product is its hands-free applicator. You can apply this product without getting your hands all greasy and is much cleaner than other lotion options.
The Repel Sportsman Max Formula is 40% Deet and is very economical selling on Amazon for around $5.
Off! Deep Woods Sportsmen offers a dry aerosol formula. With this particular product you spray it on as if it were an aerosol suntan lotion spray, but it goes on dry without the wet, greasy sensation. However, it is a little on the pricey side.
Sawyer Clothing Insect Repellent is applied directly to your clothing for when you are planning on spending sometime in the woods and outdoors. This is a fluid trigger spray product akin to spraying your clothes with Febreeze. The interesting aspect of this product is that the spray will last for up to 6 washes in the laundry machine.
All of these products, and there are many different variations for each company’s product line, kill and repel fleas, deer flies, biting flies, mosquitos, chiggers, ticks, gnats and many other pesky insects.
