You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Smidge 75ml Description

  • Brand : Smidge
  • Season : Midge Season!
  • Code : APS SMIDGE
  • Packaged Weight : 0.11KG
  • Smidge has a unique formula which works by throwing midges off your scent. Midges detect our exhaled carbon dioxide and other body odours to find us. Smidge interferes with this process and confuses the midge so that it can't smell us, can’t find us and thus can’t bite us.

    It was developed by Dr Alison Blackwell, a world-renowned authority on midge behaviour and leader of the scientific team behind the Scottish Midge Forecast.

    Dr Blackwell has been quoted as saying: “APS has been involved in tackling the midge menace for a number of years. We combine scientific research into biting insect populations and behaviour with technology to produce solutions to minimise the impact the insects have on individuals and businesses throughout the country and further afield. Our online midge forecast at www.smidgeup.com is entering its fifth year and has been used by visitors from all over the world. This year we are launching the forecast as an iPhone app to coincide with the introduction of Smidge which will give people the opportunity to keep up-to-date with the forecast wherever they are.”

    Smidge comes in a practical, robust and lightweight 75ml Aluminium pump spray. Thanks to its novel, water and sweat resisting formula it provides powerful, immediate protection for up to 8 hours without re-application.

    It repels midges, mosquitoes, horse flies, sand flies, fleas and ticks, is safe for use on adults, children over 30 months and pregnant women, is a safe alternative to DEET, won’t melt your plastic kit, has a human-friendly fragrance, is recommended by the World Health Organisation and has been scientifically proven in Scotland.

    Definitely the best midge repellent on the market in the humble opinion of Needle Sports staff.

    Volume: 75ml.
