8 Mosquito-Fighting Products That Really Work, According to Amazon Reviewers
Keep mosquitos away with these products that are better for you and the environment.
Summer is my favorite season. I love the heat, humidity and fun vacations that (usually) come with summer. However, travel is more restricted right now due to the novel coronavirus, so we’re likely all spending more time at home. Though it’s possible to have a super-fun staycation in your backyard (tacos and margaritas, anyone?), there’s one annoying part about hanging out in my backyard: mosquitos.
I live in Birmingham, Alabama, which I am convinced is the mosquito capital of the world. I’ve tried planting citronella and other mosquito-repelling plants, but the little suckers seem to still love biting me. And even though I’m a mosquito magnet, I don’t want to spray myself down with chemicals just to avoid a few bug bites.
So I scoured Amazon for the best mosquito-deterring products. Here are eight products reviewers can’t stop raving about.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Sawyer Permethrin Premium Insect Repellent is used on clothing, not skin, and it provides long-lasting protection against ticks.
One of the most popular, and readily available, means of tick prevention these days is the use of permethrin. Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment is easy to find at most any sporting goods store and applies quick and easy to your clothing, boots, gear, etc.
While not technically a filtered water bottle, Sawyer Products’ water filtration system can transform anything into a safe, clean drinking vessel. Simply fill up the included reusable pouch at any water source, screw the pouch onto the filter, and either drink directly from the filter or squeeze the now-filtered water into another vessel (like a water bottle or pot for cooking).
