More than 40 years ago I was buying 100% DEET from an Army Surplus store, and used it to defeat the hordes of mosquitoes while working on Isle Royale. Believe me, the only way to get away from the bugs was to go underwater while swimming in Lake Superior, and that was a different kind of torture. DEET works, but it is not without controversy. It is generally considered to be safe, but don't be stupid about using it. Good info here.

  I won't disagree I had always heard it was not good for you in high amounts. However take from this what you will.

I would not use this on my kids under the age of 12.  I use it as an adult going deep woods, but general backyard use -- I would avoid it.
