What are Gnats?
To prevent yourself from being bitten by Gnats, it is important to understand where gnats live. Most gnats prefer moist areas with organic material, such as houseplant soil or your garbage disposal. Some Gnats, like biting Midges, are attracted to swampy areas or fast-flowing streams and deep lakes. Pack Ranger Ready Scent Zero Picaridin 20% insect repellent on your trips if you expect to be near water and moist habitats.
Biting gnats, like Black Gnats and Sand Flies, consume blood and will cause itchy whelts on the skin. Unlike mosquitoes, gnats slice a small area of the skin before sucking out blood. Because of this, you may discover that a gnat bite is slightly more painful than a mosquito bite.
And while it is unlikely that gnats will cause serious disease in humans, they can cause disease in animals. According to Purdue University Vector Biology and Vector-Borne Diseases program, “Biting midges are extremely annoying…They have a much greater impact on non-human animals, both as biting pests and vectors of disease agents.”

What is Picaridin?
Picaridin is a synthetic compound that has been safely used for decades as an insect and gnat repellent, and was made to resemble the natural compound piperine, found in the group of plants used to produce black pepper. Picaridin works by affecting the gnat’s olfactory senses, making it so they cannot smell or detect you. Ranger Ready Scent Zero Picaridin 20% will mask your scent for at least 8 hours, so you won’t need to keep re-applying. This means you can spend more time taking in the fresh air rather than being bothered by gnats.
Why Picaridin is the Best Choice for Gnat Repellent
Gnats are attracted to certain smells, like fruit and sweet scents, many of which are included in personal products like repellents, lotion, or laundry detergent. Unlike DEET, Ranger Ready’s Scent Zero™ Picaridin 20% Insect Repellent is odorless, meaning that gnats won’t be attracted to your skin or clothes.
Not only can DEET attract Gnats, but it can also be oily and very damaging to materials like plastic, nylon, spandex, rubber, and rayon. DEET has also been known to irritate your skin, while Ranger Ready Picaridin 20% can be applied to your skin every day without irritation.
Is Picaridin Safe?
Ranger Ready Picaridin 20% Insect Repellent is safe and effect to use on the whole family, including adults, children over age-1, and during pregnancy. All products containing the active ingredient Picaridin are required to be registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Picaridin is on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended ingredient list to keep gnats and other insects away.
An effective gnat repellent spray can protect you and your family from many of the vector-borne diseases transmitted by insect bites, like West Nile virus, Lyme disease, Zika virus, and more.
