Sand flies spray or cream

  • Hello people... Which sand flies repellent you advice to get for NZ bush???
  • Deet is best but some smell better than others. I did try some organic citrus based repelants that are quite good against sandflys but atract bees
  • Thanks geeves.
  • I'm using "OFF!" Tropical (the orange one) it is using Picaridin which is much less aggressive than DEET (as in: doesn't dissolve your ropes and clothes!) and still efficient enough. It is also the cheapest available in NZ, when you compare the price per litre: https://shop.countdown.co.nz/Shop/ProductDetails?stockcode=729772 Because it is a simple spray you can repack it in a smaller container when going tramping. I use a 50 ml bottle for that.
