Extensive field studies have shown the product can repel flies, midges/sandflies & mosquitoes for up to 4 hours when applied to lower limbs.
Particularly for biting insects ensure the product is applied to all exposed areas, applying it like you would a sunscreen (note it does not offer SPF protection).
Protection time & effectiveness varies between people like any product depending on: How much is applied, the area of protection (because limbs are less attractive to flies than the face), skin chemistry & how aggressive the bugs are (difference between aggressive tropical mosquitoes & non-tropical mosquitoes).
