Insect repellent - which one?

Coming from London in a few weeks and I have my malaria tablets but I have also been advised to get Insect repellent, I have been told to get the Jungle brand but does anyone have any suggestions and should I really need it for Lagos?

1. Re: Insect repellent - which one?

I have been told to purchase repellent with at least 30% deet in it. There are some available which have up to 70% deet available in Nigeria if you want to go that way.

But even with pills or shots should use spray.

Manchester, United...

Remember that deet is poisonous. Read the advice on the repellent to make sure you don't cause yourself any harm with a high percentage of deet.

I ended up getting the "Jungle" formula it has 50% deer but was most recommended by Boots and Nomad travel clinic
