What is your favorite bug repellent?

Started by Dawn , author of Daily Adventures of a Work at Home Mom 7/18/2012 1:29:39 PM

I am trying to find something more natural then OFF for bug repellent, but I also need something more effective.  We have a problem with fleas, ticks and mosquitoes in our town (not in our yard tho.)  When we go to the parks or the river I prefer to have my kids protected since last year my daughter had a deer tick on her!

Yikes! Deer ticks aren't anything to take lightly. I usually just use OFF, although in our yard I like the citronella candles.

oh awful for her Dawn.

I use Druide for now, but I have been researching on how to make something myself :)

I will keep you posted.

I've been using Skintastic so far on the kids.  We've had a number of ticks this year - all on my husband and me, and thankfully non attached yet.  I try really hard to check everyone as soon as we get in.

I like the Fairy Tales brand for my kids.  It even smells decent.
