Ben's Tick & Insect Repellent Frequently Asked Questions
How long does Ben's Tick & Insect Repellent last?
Although insect repellents work differently on everyone due to body chemistry and other factors such whether you are sweating, their studies show that Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent provides two hours of protection and Ben's 100 Tick & Insect Repellent provides 10 hours of protection or more.
Why does Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent use water instead of alcohol as most other DEET insect repellents do?
They replaced alcohol in Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent because water does not evaporate as quickly as alcohol, and does not open the pores; therefore it is a longer lasting formula that does not need to be reapplied as frequently. Alcohol also creates a strong aroma providing the traditional "insect repellent" smell. The water-based Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent formula does not have a scent that is as strong as some alcohol based repellents.
What is the difference between Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent and Ben's 100 Tick & Insect Repellent?
Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent contains 30 percent DEET and is the amount recommended by the CDC for protection from disease carrying insects. Studies show that 30% deet provides up to 6 hours of protections making it a perfect choice when hiking, camping or enjoying other outdoor activities in areas of light to heavy insect infestation or whenever ticks may be present. Ben's 100 Tick & Insect Repellent contains 98 percent DEET, the highest concentration -- and therefore one of the longest lasting DEET formulas available from any manufacturer. It is recommended for use in areas of heavy insect infestation and studies show that it will provide up to 10 hours of protection against biting insects and ticks.
Will a higher percentage of DEET give me better protection?
A higher percentage of DEET in a repellent does not mean that your protection is better - just that it will last longer. The more DEET a repellent contains the longer time it can protect you from mosquito bites. (CDC)
Will DEET based repellents damage nylon materials?
The chemical DEET will react as a solvent to some synthetic fabrics, plastics, leather, furniture and paints. (See package labeling.) Most nylon materials are not affected by DEET. Just to be safe, you should test an inconspicuous area on the fabric. Natrapel 8 Hour is a non-deet alternative that does not damage fabric or gear.
How many sprays are in a 4 oz. bottle of Ben's 30 Tick & Insect Repellent in a 1.25 oz bottle?
Approx. 400 sprays in a 4 oz. bottle and 125 in a 1.25 oz. bottle.
When does my Ben's Tick & Insect Repellent product expire?
US Ben's Tick & Insect Repellent products do not have an expiration date because Ben's Tick & Insect Repellent products contain deet which will never expire.
County & Municipal Supply Program
Tender Corporation's County and Municipal Supply Program was established last year to assist various governmental agencies who have responsibility in the areas of vector-borne diseases and mosquito abatement by supplying their Ben's 30 DEET tick and insect repellent at special prices. Ben's 30 is 30% DEET. Tender Corporation has developed a water-based formulation which they believe offers advantages over typical alcohol-based repellents. Because it contains no alcohol, it does not open the pores of the skin when it is applied and it does not evaporate so readily. The result is longer-lasting protection. Under their County and Municipal Supply Program they are offering special pricing on Ben's 30 pump in a 1.25 oz bottle packaged 144 bottles to a case.* If you have any questions, please call Tender Corporation toll-free at 800-258-4696.
* This price and offer are valid only to county and municipal agencies. Proof of identification and a valid PO# from the agency is required.
