16. Insect repellent made with Picaridin instead of DEET, which means it works to repel biting flies as well as mosquitos — as well as ticks, chiggers, and gnats.
Promising review: "I live near rice fields, which means mosquitoes all day, every day, 10 months of the year. I was really disappointed with DEET products: most are aerosols, and they quit spraying while you have about half the product left in the can. I found this product from the Consumer Reports review and decided to try it. It is VERY effective. When I use this, I don't even see mosquitoes in my vicinity!It has a light scent that fades within 20 minutes, but keeps working for hours. I walk my dogs two to three times per day, and most other products are pretty effective, but I will notice that clouds of mosquitoes following me, especially after a long walk (they are attracted to the CO2 you exhale). Not so with this: mosquitoes keep their distance. This is also long lasting — I spray it once and don't need to reapply for up to 7 hours." —L. Bradford
You can buy it in sixteen different sizes and applications from Amazon, like two bottles of spray for $13.40 (that's $6.70 each).
