The 10 Best Insect and Mosquito Repellents of 2020 from Verywell
Protect against West Nile Virus, Zika, and other mosquito-borne and insect-borne illnesses with insect repellent when walking outdoors.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends mosquito repellent with 5 percent to 50 percent DEET as the best insect repellent for West Nile Virus mosquitoes1 . Over 50 percent DEET provides no further protection and can damage some fabrics.
For children under two months of age, it is best to avoid DEET, and it's important to limit the concentration to under 30 percent for older children. These are the best mosquito repellents to keep those insects far away.
