Rank & Style: 10 BEST BUG SPRAY FOR KIDS

Summer is here, which means mosquito season is at its absolute height. Whether you’re enjoying a day out by the lake, on a camping trip, or just having a backyard cookout, it’s always important to protect yourself and your little ones from bug bites. Although bug sprays can have chemicals such as DEET in them, the EPA has deemed that it’s safe to use registered insect repellents when used appropriately (so be sure to read the labels!). If you’re still on the fence, we’ve provided a list of options that include wipes to prevent any chemical inhalation, products with controlled DEET release, organic options, and even DEET-free products. These are kid-tested and mom-approved, so you won’t have to worry about harsh chemicals, bad reactions, or nasty bug bites. Check out our Top 10 list of bug sprays for kids for an itch-free, carefree summer

Ticks, mosquitoes and biting bugs are a top reason to ruin anyone’s fun in the great outdoors, but after using Sawyer Permethrin to treat my boots, clothes and gear, I was amazed by the results.

If you don’t like spraying on bug repellent, you might want to try the Sawyer Insect Repellent Lotion. It has a 20% picaridin formula that you simply rub onto your skin, and it provides protection against mosquitoes and ticks for up to 14 hours and protection against flies, gnats and chiggers for up to eight hours.
