Unsure which repellent to take on your travels? Take a look at our quick guide to choosing an insect repellent:
A high performance DEET insect repellent range, offering long-lasting all day protection for up to 12 hours.
DEET has been effectively used as a mosquito repellent since 1946 and remains the most effective and broad spectrum repellent available on the market.
Use Trek Ultra or Trek 50 when travelling to high risk areas where Malaria or other insect-borne diseases, such as Dengue Fever, West Nile Virus and Filariasis are present. Trek 50 is our maximum strength repellent suitable for adult use in tropical areas, and Trek 20 is the mildest strength DEET repellent, suitable for children over 2. From January 2017 100% DEET products have been withdrawn from sale as Pyramid complies with the EU Biocidal Products Regulations.
Trek Ultra mosquito repellent has been formulated by our scientists to ensure you have the maximum protection possible, with the minimum amount of application necessary. Apply once for all day protection! The micro-encapsultation technology in this innovative repellent means that the repellent vapour is released slowly over the period of wear and is more durable, being both sweat & splash resistant.
Trek Sensitive and Trek Midge & Tick are made using Saltidin®, proven to be an effective alternative to DEET and gentle on the skin. This family friendly DEET-Free insect repellent range is non-sticky or greasy and has a pleasant smell. Both repellents can be used by pregnant women and children over 2 years of age. The midge repellent offers vital protection for travellers visiting the Scottish countryside in the summer.
Trek Sensitive and Trek Midge & Tick are made with micro-encapsulated Saltidin®, where the repellent has a sustained and slow release over the duration of wear, protecting you for longer from one application. Apply once for all day protection for up to 12 hours. The unique time-release technology means you can enjoy your day bite free. Both insect repellents are sweat
& splash resistant and non-greasy.
We also offer a natural mosquito repellent which can be used on the whole family, from age 6 months+. Trek natural repellent uses Citriodiol® (Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus) to give exceptional natural protection from insect bites. It protects for up to 10 hours and is a great alternative to DEET.
The Trek DEET-Free range is ideal for use on family holidays to ward off insect bites. The whole family is protected with Pyramid's Trek DEET free insect repellent.
