I hate chemical bug sprays, which is why I use a natural bug spray instead. The natural one my boyfriend and I use when we are outside working in the yard, which is a very woods like area with tons of mosquitoes, is the Quantum Buzz Away Extreme Insect Repellent.
I like this insect repellent because it uses natural ingredients to repel the nasty mosquitoes such as peppermint oil, cedar wood, citronella, geranium oil and wintergreen oil. The
scent of the insect repellent is a citronella lemony like one, which is a lot better than those chemical filled bug sprays. The way we use the spray is by stepping outside and spraying it on our clothing. We do not spray it on our skin because it is oily. However, spraying it on our outdoor clothing is enough to help keep the bugs away naturally.
However, the bug spray says it last about eight hours, but this is not truth. We have to reapply the insect repellent every two hours, which is okay because the repellent is still better than the chemical filled ones that harm our health.
After we are done outside we do go inside and take our cloths off and wash them well as well as shower well because if we do not the scent of the insect repellent lingers.
I also like this bug spray because it protects us from ticks.
