Best Bug Spray for Kids

Searching for the best bug spray to keep your family safe outdoors? We purchased and tested 8 top bug sprays suitable for use with kids to determine which were the most effective, safest, and the best smelling and feeling products in the group. We tested each spray side-by-side in a variety of locations to help you find the right option for your needs. Read on to find out all the buggy details.

Best Overall Bug Spray for Kids

Sawyer Insect Repellent

Effective Ingredient: 20% Picaridin | Application Method: Spray

  • Wide efficacy
  • Easy application
  • Evaporating odor
  • Narrow spray stream
  • Dual lids hard to keep track of

Sawyer Insect Repellent is a versatile picaridin spray recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as safe and effective for most users. Our testers liked the evaporating smell and the way the spray feels after it dries. We found it effective against a variety of bugs, and testers thought it worked well on skin and gear. It comes with two lids to prevent leaking, and the bottle is small enough to fit almost anywhere.

While the dual lid is nice, it can be challenging to keep track of both when out on adventures. Also, the smaller bottle means you’ll potentially need more than one for each trip, but it does come in a pack of 2, so at least you get your money’s worth. Sawyers is an effective and easy to use product with no offensive smell and wide coverage for every member of the family.
