The single best mosquito and anti-tick spray we've ever found. It uses Picaridin which isn't so bad on your skin, and won't melt plastic like DEET will. Comes in spray or lotion, and effective up to 12 hours. If a disaster or emergency forces you outdoors for extended periods of time, you want to be protected from bugs!

Doesn't stink, doesn't irritate skin, doesn't melt plastic. But works REALLY well, on both mosquitoes AND ticks. We've found this out over the course of using it over three summers in the tick-infested Pocono mountains.
