CNET: The best bug sprays in 2021

The best bug sprays in 2021

Cutter, Proven, Natrapel and more: the best insect repellents for every outdoor summer need.

Summer’s right around the corner and already here in some parts of the world (hello from 90-degree Miami). In a lot of places, hot weather means bugs. I’m talking mosquitos, ticks, chiggers, gnats, biting flies and no-see-ums. Yuck. (And ouch and itch.)

Having grown up in Louisiana and now living in Florida, I’ve spent a lifetime dousing my skin and clothes in insect repellent. Bug spray is a staple in the south, to say the least.

If you plan on spending any time outdoors this summer, and especially if you plan to go camping or visit any marshy areas, it’s best to go prepared with insect repellent. These are some of the best bug sprays available right now, as determined by my testing of more than 20 products in the South Florida heat.
