Quote from heddy73:I read an article where they said Bounce dryer sheets(I imagine any brand will work)will repel bugs. Your supposed to tie one to your belt loop or put it under your hat. It sounds weird but at least it seems safer than bug sprays. Someone told me they wipe it on their arms and legs too. They said it worked for them.....I'm willing to try because my boys are 5 and 7 and I still don't like those bug sprays.
I wouldn't use a regular mosquito spray on kids, but there is a product called Off! For Kids or something like that. It's in a plastic bottle and usually has a pink sprayer thing on the top.
I highly recommend Benadryl cream for mosquito bites. It's wonderful!
