Go snack on somebody else, you blood-sucking fiends.
5. Picaridin-based repellent for protecting yourself against a variety of buggers beyond just mosquitoes (like ticks, biting flies, sand flies, gnats, chiggers, and midges, depending on which formula you use).

Promising review: “My 4-year-old son is severely allergic to mosquito bites. When he does get bit, they swell to the size of a half-dollar, get hard and hot, and often turn into a staph infection. Every summer he was getting antibiotic prescriptions and I was starting to get seriously worried about this problem. We tried so many bug sprays, but they just didn’t work.

Since using this bug spray, we haven’t had to deal with a single bug bite and no more antibiotics!!” —Sarah R.
