Spray repellents also melt other plastics, like your bikes body work, your windshield and your helmet. Puts little pits in them if they get hit with overspray. I don't know if it is the DEET itself or the propellent that does the damage but there are bottles of liquid that you rub on instead of spray. Might be trading overspray for spills. Lately, the spray can has been more effective to try to bludgeon the damn zancudos. AS it cools down and drys out, we will see fewer of them in Sonora.
