How to Choose A Mosquito Repellent
You have decided that you want a Repel mosquito repellent you are just unsure of which one to get. Every situation is different and requires a unique strategy, so you want to get the right product for the job. We’re going to break down each method a little more to help you decide what will work best for your exact situation.
If you are someone who is concerned about the possible effects DEET could have on your skin, or you are trying to keep mosquitoes away from small children you may want to go with an all natural spray. These contain no DEET and get made from different essential oils. Citrus based products are very popular for keep mosquitoes away because they do not like the smell of lemon.
The all natural sprays do not usually work as well as the DEET based ones but there are some good ones from Repel that do the job, and you do not have to worry about covering yourself in chemicals.
These are your more typically insect repellent sprays that contain chemicals but work very effectively. This is the main active ingredient that repels virus containing mosquitoes, and it consistently works to get the job done. The only real downside to using DEET spray is that you are covering yourself in possibly harmful chemicals. There is a lot of research out there on the negative effects of DEET, so this is a decision you have to make on your own.
If you are using spray on your children, you may want to shy away from DEET, but there are some formulas out there that contain less of the chemical than others. The bottom line is that it works very well, but there are risks associated with it.
Citronella candles are very popular for keeping mosquitoes and other flying insects away. These candles are typically known for being poorly designed and barely effective. The incredibly well-designed citronella candle from Repel has three wicks and burns evenly every time. You do not have to waste a drop because the wicks stand strong and burn slowly across forty hours.
Citronella candles are naturally weaker than the aerosol spray because you are not putting the wax directly on your skin, so they are more so intended to provide a mosquito free perimeter around an outdoor space. If you are having a backyard party or want to spend some time outside in the evening-citronella candles from Repel are a great way to keep the bugs away for hours.
One of the great things about the wipes is that you do not have to spray chemicals into the air. They work just as effectively as the aerosol cans, but they do not require you to spread chemicals and risk getting it into your lungs, eyes, and open cuts. You have a lot more control over where you are putting the repellent. This works great around sensitive areas like your face.
This spray is a unique method for keeping mosquitoes away, but it is a highly effective strategy from Repel. Their clothing spray is incredibly potent and provides two weeks worth of protection when sprayed directly onto clothing and gear. If you are planning a long trip into the woods and you need serious protection, this is certainly the way to go.
