In our commitment to bring you the best products with the best evidence supporting their effectiveness, we have begun to have our products tested at an independent laboratory that specializes in repellent testing.
Over the winter, we had two of our products tested against several important species of mosquitos. In numerous trials, both Nantucket Spider Summer Camp and Nantucket Spider for People consistently repelled between 93 and 100% of each species of mosquito in each test.
We also had our new Extra Strength Tick product tested against deer ticks. Ticks are notoriously difficult to repel with any repellent and we are proud to introduce our Extra Strength Tick formula that really seems to deter deer ticks. In the laboratory, our new formula repelled 92% of deer ticks. No repellent can replace the need for other precautionary measures like daily showers and regular tick checks but we believe that Nantucket Spider Extra Strength Tick is an important tool in the continuing battle against ticks!
