Yahoo: The very best insect repellent sprays on Amazon, according to reviews

Warmer weather means long evenings of sipping wine in our garden (short of wine? Top up with a wine delivery service pronto), brighter mornings that make getting out of bed less torturous and zero shivering when we stand outside for hours on end, because our children want us to watch them do tricks on the slide.

Sadly though, it also means the returns of all those bugs we’d forgotten about for another year.

From mosquitos and flies to ants and wasps, there are all manner of pests lurking in our newly planted gardens and, though we’re peaceful, animal-loving people, we’re not keen on being bitten while we wait for the barbecue to heat up.

That means that bug repellant is a must.

So, we’ve rounded up six top-rated insect repellant sprays on Amazon, so you can enjoy the sun with none of the flailing your arms and itching that bugs bring to the party.
