Arm yourself against the buzzzz
Summer BBQs would be a lot more fun if you weren’t constantly swatting pesky mosquitoes away from your arms and legs. Here, five of the best products for banishing those blood-thirsty little bugs.
REPEL LEMON-EUCALYPTUS INSECT REPELLENT SPRAY
It’s DEET-free and it works for up to six hours. It also doesn’t make your whole bod smell like chemicals. A win-win.
EVERGREEN RESEARCH INSECT REPELLING SUPERBAND
There’s a reason these guys are sold by the 400-count. This DEET-free, non-toxic wristband is infused with a special blend of natural insect repelling oils and lasts for up to 200 hours. (FYI, seal them in plastic baggie after opening and you’ll extend the life even more.)
THERMACELL MOSQUITO REPELLENT PEST CONTROL OUTDOOR LANTERN
This battery-operated lamp creates a 15-by-15-foot zone of protection against mosquitoes and other biting bugs. It’s also not the ugliest thing you’ve ever put on your patio, which means you can set a few out without disrupting the decor.
BITE SHIELD CITRONELLA AND GERANIOL CANDLE
The plant-derived scent found in Geraniol actually works five times better than Citronella. Put the two together and mosquitoes won’t know what hit ‘em.
NATGEO INSECT SHIELD LONG-SLEEVED TEE
Your best defense against annoying mosquitoes is a long-sleeved shirt--especially one that comes infused with bug spray. (Seriously, it’s woven into the fabric.)
