Description Edit

Repellent is a rather rare material found by killing Cicadas in Elysian Fields. By itself, it serves no function; but it is used to craft Water Repellent, Insect Repellent and Varnished Planks.

Water Repellent Edit

This version of Repellent is crafted by surrounding standard Repellent with Hydrofuge in a Crafting Table. Its sole use at this time is to craft Water Striders, by surrounding a pair of Reinforced Exoskeleton Boots.

A rather specific item with quite a useful function, Insect Repellent is crafted using 5 Iron Ingots, a Wooden Button and a (fluid ounce?) of Repellent. Once crafted, you will receive 9 cans of Insect Repellent.

How is this useful? It does what it says on the can (sorry, couldn't resist!). Right-click on a block whilst holding a can of Insect Repellent to spray that block, coating the top with Insect Repellent. This acts as a hard barrier to any arthropod that attempts to step through it.

However, unlike bug spray in reality, this literally just repels; it will not harm any arthropods, only prevent their passage.

Disclaimer: This will not prevent arthropods capable of flight from flying over such a barrier. You must still be wary of Botflies, Wasps, Hornets of Despair and Dragonflies.
