I am on a mission to find a bug spray that WORKS. Mosquitos LOVE me and G. It’s not even May and we already have multiple mosquito bites. G stayed covered in them last summer and he scratched them into sore so he was also covered in bandaids all summer.
So I polled my Facebook friends and here are all the things I’ve added to my Amazon cart based on their suggestions…
REPEL Plant-Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent came recommended and I’m all for chemical-free, plant-based options if they work!
REPEL Plant-Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, Pump Spray, 4-Ounce is $4.93 on Amazon.
As much issue as we have with mosquitos just because we exist, I figured I needed to go ahead and get the heavy duty stuff for the times I know we’re going to be in mosquito territory (hiking, evenings outside, working the garden).
I couldn’t pass up this Cutter 2-Pack Backwoods Aerosol Insect Repellent, 6-Ounce marked down from $10.99 to $6.28!
But I don’t want to smell like bug spray all the time, so I’m trying these as well for daily use:
OFF! Botanicals Insect Repellent IV, 2 fl oz – $4.71 when you choose Subscribe & Save
And believe it or not, Johnson’s Creamy Aloe & Vitamin E Oil was recommended by not just one, but two friends! Where have you been all my life? I had no idea that this baby lotion worked to repel mosquitos! It’s overpriced on Amazon, but I found it at Target for $3.99.
Spectracide Triazicide Insect Killer For Lawns & Landscapes was recommended for treating the yard to keep them away from us when we are at home.
Spectracide Triazicide Insect Killer For Lawns & Landscapes Concentrate, Ready-to-Spray, 32-Ounce is deeply discounted on Amazon right now – just $6.92 (regularly $16.99!)
