I originally made this Bug Dope 6 years ago for my seasons of tree planting each spring and summer. I was interested in using a product that didn't contain deet or any toxic chemicals. I found it very effective in the wilderness of British Columbia that I decided to create some for my travels to the islands of Thailand. Once again I had Mosquitos hovering trying to find a place to land with no avail and I didn't have the lingering smell of deet accompanying me. I had other travellers begging for some and I knew there was something great created here. I have used this bug repellant for 5 years in the Canadian wilderness, specifically for the treeplanting seasons up in northern Alberta, and BC, and I can say it's not something I would leave behind.
