Government Testing New Bug Spray Chemicals

Posted:

The Pentagon is getting into the bug spray business, testing some new ones that could last up to 73 days. 

Scientists agree the best ingredient in repellants on the market right now is DEET.  One scientist at the Pentagon says that some of the new chemicals they are testing are in his words "just phenomenal".  Of course, the Government's interest is in protecting our soldiers. 

Researchers say it could be a year or two before we see any of these new bug fighters commercially available.
