We all know "OFF! Deep Woods" repellent, a product containing about 24% DEET, fared the best. Its protection lasted an average of five hours. In 1998, The Environmental Protection Agency re-evaluated DEET, and found that it is very safe when used according to label directions, and it's not classified as a carcinogen (Cancer-causing agent).
