29 Problem Solving Products For Anyone Who Would Love Summer If It Weren't For All The Bugs
If mosquitos love you, you'll love this post.
7. An insect repellent made with picaridin instead of DEET that repels mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies — all without leaving behind a gross bug spray smell.
While picaridin isn't always quite as effective as DEET against mosquitos, it is still a great alternative for anyone who hates the smell and texture of other sprays and lotions.
Promising review: "This is the absolute best bug repellent out there. My four-year-old son is severely allergic to mosquito bites. When he does get bit, they swell to the size of a half dollar, get hard and hot and often turn into a staph infection. Every summer he was getting antibiotic prescriptions and I was starting to get seriously worried. We tried so many bug sprays but they just didn't work. My sweet baby is just irresistible. I took him to an allergist and he recommended Sawyer Picaridin. I have been so happy with this bug repellent. Since using this bug spray, we haven't had to deal with a single bug bite and no more antibiotics!!" —Sarah R.
