Wirecutter’s 5 Most Popular Picks in June 2020

Mosquitoes are on the offensive, but Wirecutter readers are fighting back: Our top pick for the best mosquito control gear was the most-purchased pick in June, and our favorite insect repellents weren’t far behind. Of course, with summer bugs come summer heat, and predictably, our top-pick window fans, room fans, window air conditioners, and portable air conditioners were all on last month’s top 20 list.

Resistance bands for at-home workouts were once again a popular choice for readers looking for gym alternatives, and nonstick pans and air purifiers remain perennially popular. Also popular last month: webcams, office chairs, bathroom scales, handheld vacuums, gas grills, garden hoses, and bike locks.
