Don’t let insects bug you too much this summer.

You can prevent that from happening by picking the right insect repellent — one that’s both safe and effective. The nonprofit research organization Environmental Working Group notes that their top picks for bug repellents include those with ingredients like Picaridin (a 20% concentration can protect against ticks and mosquitoes all day) and DEET (a 20% to 30% concentration can protect against ticks and mosquitoes all day) — though they do have downsides (see below). We cross-checked these ingredients with repellents rated excellent by Consumer Reports to figure out some of the best repellents you can buy. Here are three stand-outs, including Sawyer Products Premium Insect Repellent with 20% Picaridin, which has nearly 3,000 5-star reviews on Amazon and costs $9.
