DEET seems to be the main insect repellent that works for pretty much all of the bug world. I just don't care for it, it feels weird, smells weird, and likes to melt stuff.
Most the alternatives seems targeted for just mosquitos, not ticks. IR3535 seems to have some data on ticks (10 people, really?).
What is the best alternative that works for both mosquitos and ticks? Is there any data out there to compare all the repellents?
