Look at the percentage of DEET. The Deep Woods is like 25%. I use the 40% (Repel Sportman's Max - Walmart).

When I'm really deep in the woods hiking I use Jungle Juice (REI) which is 100% DEET.

No need for bug-spray in my neck of the woods . Sunscreen is my interpretation of colonge . I'm what's known as a Daywalker(from South Park), a redhead that tans , but the sun is my enemy . I'll suffer from skin cancer later on in life ,without a doubt .
