The application of any bug spray is vitally important to the prevention of any bites or stings from insects. Firstly, you should apply the spray before you come in contact with insects (not just after your first bite). Secondly, similar to suncream the product needs to be applied to all exposed areas to ensure there are no vacant areas for those bugs to get you. Thirdly, due to the nature of human skin (sweating) and the possibility of materials rubbing off the spray insect repellent needs to be applied once every three hours for optimal results.
