When wearing long pants and shirt, is it useless to apply a mosquito repellent on the skin under the clothes, or is it effective even under clothes? (for India)
Hopefully, if your clothes are thick enough, the mosquitos won't be able to bite through. Also as DEET apparently works by messing with the mosquitos sense of smell, it won't be as effective because it would first have to go through your clothes.
If they are biting through your clothes, it would be more effective to spray on top of your clothes which has the added benefit of keeping the DEET of your skin.
