These Are the Only Proven Mosquito Repellents

Amid a cloud of misinformation and useless products, Wes Siler explains four mosquito repellents that actually work.

When it comes to mosquito repellents, an endless number of products make bold claims but offer very little protection in the real world. According to science, only four substances can offer reliable protection against mosquitoes: DEET, picaridin, allethrin, and permethrin. Wes Siler is here to detail how they work.

Wes recommends:

  • Off Deep Woods Insect Repellent
  • Ben’s Eco Spray
  • Sawyer Permethrin Insect Repellent
  • Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Device
