Ticks, flies and mosquitoes rank among summer’s biggest buzzkills. And they’re more than just pesty—they can carry dangerous diseases such as West Nile and Lyme. DEET repellents have long been the gold standard for keeping these creepy crawlies away, but many are wary of using this chemical on kids.
So if you find yourself sporting itchy spots after every backyard BBQ (research has found mosquitoes are more attracted to certain body odors) consider a DEET-free formula to keep you as bite-free as the best of them. They’re safe for young children under parental supervision. Just shake ‘em up to activate the ingredients.
