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.

Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.

I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
