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.
