Repel Sportsmen 30-Percent Deet Mosquito Repellent Wipes Reviewed

Repel Sportsmen Deet Mosquito Repellent Wipes really do work!  They protect against mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, gnats & fleas.  Portable packaging for easy carry convenience.
I have discovered a fabulous product that I absolutely must share! 

I hate mosquitoes. Well, truthfully, I hate mosquito bites.  I can't say that the little buggers themselves would affect me in any way if they didn't bite me.  I have heard all of the tips for wearing black, wearing socks, avoiding perfumes or scented anything, etc., but until we tried the mosquito wipes, nothing worked for me.  Those pesky creatures seemed to find a way to my skin no matter what I previously tried.  However, this past 4th of July, I stood in our normal open field taking photos of the fireworks without being eaten up by mosquitoes. 

Right before went outside, we wiped our feet, ankles, legs, arms and the backs of our hands with the wipes.  That simple application worked miracles.  I only got 3 mosquito bites this year and they were on the tops of my fingers.  You see, I didn't use the wipes on my fingers simply because I didn't want to accidentally touch my eyes, so I didn't apply the wipes to my fingers. 

Repel Insect Mosquito Repellent Wipes

 Repel 94100 Sportsmen 30-Percent Deet Mosquito Repellent Wipes, 15 CountWhen my husband suggested we try the Repel Mosquito Repellent wipes, I admit, I expected it to be an exercise in futility.  After all, nothing else had ever keep those buggers from biting me and leaving me with ugly welts, itching and scratching for days.

In addition to the discomfort of the bites, the increased concerns for the diseases mosquitoes carry and transmit, we really needed to find some solutions.  We previously purchased the Flowtron Bug Zapper that Bev Owens recommended here on Review This and it works great in our backyard.  However, we can't carry it with us when we go hiking in the woods or stand in open, damp fields to take photos.  

I'm just one great big tasty target for all the mosquitoes in our county when I go outside.  Mosquitoes really steal a portion of my joy when I venture into the great outdoors.  At least they used to have the affect on me.  Now, I won't go out without my Repel Mosquito Repellent Wipes!

I prefer the wipes to a spray.  The wipes are so much easier to use.  Plus, the resealable package allows me to carry the wipes in my camera bag and pull them out as needed before I get out of the car.  I do wear a nitrile glove when I use the wipes.  As I previously stated, I don't want the repellent on my finger tips to be inadvertently rubbed in my eyes.

These awesome Repel Wipes also claim to protect against ticks, chiggers, gnats, and fleas.  Now that is just fantastic!  I hate ticks more than mosquitoes.

  1. Well, our family has tried just about every spray and product you can think of to keep from getting bit by mosquitoes and none are really totally effective. Your review of these Repel Sportsman wipes may have just given me the solution. First I like the idea of the wipes as I really hate using a spray (hard to direct and it's not very handy to carry around a spray can so one usually only uses it at home and then you have none handy if needed to reapply. Then, I really like the fact that this product also works on gnats, which are a real problem here in our Southern coastal area. I also heard a story on our local news this week that the West Nile Virus has been documented in the mosquito population in our county, which is a bit scary. So the protection these Repel wipes would offer is important. Thanks for this very helpful review.

  2. I will be forever grateful if this solution works as well for me as it did for you. I must have the exact pheromones that mosquitoes crave. Since this has been a particularly bad year for mosquitoes, I am in need of a product that will save me from the misery caused by these pesky critters. Happy to have found your review. I will most definitely try these Repel wipes. Thanks!

  3. My husband is the one the mosquitoes, gnats, and all the other annoying biting bugs seem to love, though I've had my share of bug bites through the years. These Repel Wipes sound like a very practical, easy-to-use solution. Appreciate the personal review!

  4. Does this work for Black Flies too? If so, I think I just might have to get me some. Mosquitoes leave me alone, it's the black flies that get into my hair and scalp that cause me so much grief. I ended up in emergency once and the doc who saw me was amazed at the amount of bites I had withstood. Don't ever want to do that again. I will give these a try the next time I'm out and about and report back to you! Thanks for the great review.

  5. great tip! I'll have to remember this, they sound ideal for outdoor gatherings, and easy to carry along. Strangely enough I've noticed where we live there hasn't been as many mosquitos this year, hmmm, that's bit weird, but ok with us! I'm sure we have them, and I noticed them when sitting outdoors at night if we did more of it. I like the idea of putting a package of these in my purse for when we're out.
