Damage from Insect Repellant

Post by Ed_Nebraska » Mon Jun 30, 2008 7:56 am

I recently read an article which warned against the use of insect repellants containing DEET due to the damage which it can cause to plastics and some other materials.

Which insect repellants are safe to use with my Strait Edge 2 Kayak?

Would Permethrine be a better alternative?
