Insect-Repellent Fabric Treatment Is It Enough

Have you done any research on insect-repellent fabric treatment? I’m curious about what’s involved in production and whether it does indeed work.http://www.purpleturtle.co.uk/acatalog/Protective_Clothing_and_Fabric_Treatment.html
Answer
The active ingredient in this clothing won’t protect exposed skin from insects, although you’ll likely sustain fewer bites through your clothing. And while it may prevent ticks from crawling on your clothes and then on to you, the clothes won’t keep ticks from jumping onto exposed heads, necks, arms or feet.
Here is something else that will help at least you wont have to get it on your skin. Clips onto belt, purse.
