Find the Insect Repellent that is Right for You

Use the search tool below to help you choose the repellent product that is right for you. You can specify the:
  • insect,
  • protection time,
  • active ingredient, or
  • other product-specific information.
Consider these factors when choosing an insect repellent:
  • Do you need protection from mosquitoes, ticks or both?
  • How long will you be exposed to them? Be sure to use a product with a protection time that fits your activity.
Notes about the results:
  • The results from the search tool include only skin-applied insect repellent products registered by EPA. No unregistered products are listed.
  • The registration number means the company provided EPA with technical information on the safety of the product and its effectiveness against mosquitoes and/or ticks. While this technical information is based on scientific testing guidelines and approved study methods, there are variations in the resulting protection times because of differences in the testing conditions.
  • A single registered insect repellent product may have multiple product names that a company may use for marketing purposes. You can look for the registration number of repellents products you buy and check them against this database. 
  • Some of the products listed may not be available in all areas of the United States.
