Deet is for tick and mosquito spray. Ticks are most active in the spring. Just check yourself when you come in from outside. Behind the ears are quite common for them to burrow. We like OFF Deep Woods. Mosquitoes are generally worse at sundown, but yes, can be out at any time. Deer are the same way, any time, but more often at dusk. Not sure about the hours for the refuge.
