The Best Insect Repellents to Take the Bite Out of Summer

first_img The Best Food Shows on Netflix to Binge Right Now 16 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now The Best Travel and Adventure Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Editors’ Recommendations Mosquitoes and ticks can turn a pleasant day outdoors into a Biblical plague if you’re not careful. Those little bastards are miniature Nosferatus, coming for our blood and spreading diseases all along the way. The surest method of keeping the bloodsuckers at bay is to use a repellent that includes a decent percentage of the chemicals DEET or picaridin.DEET was getting a bad rap a few years back, but as WebMD reports, it was probably being confused with DDT, a now-banned pesticide.DEET can, however, damage rubber, plastic, leather, vinyl, rayon, spandex, elastic, and auto paint, so be sure to wash your hands before handling anything made of those materials — sunglasses, for instance. It doesn’t hurt cotton, wool, or nylon. To be safe, just use a product with picaridin instead. Another option is to wear clothing that incorporates permethrin, a chemical which can be bonded to fabrics.Health and fitness guru Dave Asprey believes that DEET can cause “adverse effects such as manic psychosis, seizures, and cardiovascular changes.” So if you’re already a fan of his Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil, you can always try whipping up a batch of homemade bug spray, by mixing the product with water, witch hazel, and essential oils. Just don’t try adding it to your coffee.Another point. There are websites that tout the effects of taking Vitamin B supplements, which supposedly makes your body smell less … delicious … to mosquitoes. Studies have shown that this inside-out technique probably doesn’t work. (Editor’s note: The jury is also still out on mosquito repellent foods.)Finally, we address that other scourge of summer, poison ivy (or poison oak or sumac, depending on where you live). Just when you thought you were safe, a quick shortcut through the brush can make for an itchy, painful couple of days or weeks. “Leaves of three, leave it be”…but make sure you’ve got some of these products available as a backup.Sawyer Picaridin Insect repellant Lotion — $9REI shoppers — an outdoorsy lot for sure — give this lotion a five-star rating. It repels ticks and mosquitoes for up to 14 hours and flies and chiggers for up to eight. It’s particularly effective against the breeds of mosquito that live in Central and South America. So keep in mind if a trip to either is in your plans.See ItSawyer Picaridin Insect repellant Lotion Packets — $9We also love these individual packets of the product that make it easy to grab-and-go. Easy to pack for a weekend trip, but also perfect if you’re just driving to a favorite local spot for a hike or picnic.See ItTotal Home Woodland Scent Insect repellant — $6A DEET product that gets high ratings from consumers is this Total Home version from CVS. It’s more of a quick fix, lasting for about two hours, and in an easy to use spray. It’s great for a short outing with the kids.See ItRepel Lemon Eucalyptus Natural Insect repellant Pump — $5The Centers for Disease Control supports using “natural” products with oil of lemon eucalyptus to ward off mosquitoes, but they aren’t sure that these countermeasures work against ticks. It is effective for up to six hours. We’d suggest using when you’re wearing shoes, socks, and long pants. Just be sure to do an all-over body check ASAP to make sure you haven’t picked up any errant ticks on exposed skin.See ItBullFrog Mosquito Coast Sunblock with Insect Repellent — $9We’re always a fan of products that do double-duty. Protect your hide from bugs and the sun’s damaging rays with BullFrog’s aptly named Mosquito Coast Sunblock. It’s DEET-free and should repel mosquitoes for up to eight hours, although the company suggests reapplying every two hours or after swimming to continue sun protection.See ItExOfficio BugsAway Woven Bandana — $12We like a lot of ExOfficio’s travel-oriented clothing, and their BugsAway apparel collection provides a stylish solution to ward off the little bloodsuckers. As its website says, “The built-in insect repellent permethrin provides a carefree outdoor experience, letting you focus on your adventure, not the bugs.” Grab one of these bandannas to wear on your head, around your neck, or give Fido a little fashion flair.See ItL.L. Bean Sea to Summit Bugwear Jacket and Mitts — $40When all else fails, just go old school. This hoodie is a mosquito net that you wear … and not too different from some of the things we saw going down runways during men’s fashion week in Paris.See ItThermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller — $25Go high tech in taking back your camping area from bugs. This Thermacell repeller looks like an Alexa for your backyard. The device provides a 15-by-15-foot zone of safety by using butane to heat up a “mat” of natural insect repellent.See ItNoBugs Blanket — $25A kinder, gentler approach that may be perfect to take to those summer outdoor concerts. The NoBu.gs Blanket uses permethrin to provide a protective barrier between you and bugs.See ItIvyX Poison Oak and Ivy Pre Contact — $9According to the manufacturer of this product, it takes less than the equivalent of a grain of salt of urushiol—the “active ingredient” in poison ivy—to cause a reaction in most humans. Smooth on this gel to tighten skin’s pores and provide a barrier against those nasty florae before heading into questionable territory.See ItTecnu Oak-N-Ivy Cleanser — $8So you’re walking back up the bank from the river in your flip-flops when you look down and realize that yes, you are, in fact, walking through a big patch of poison ivy. Get directly to a shower and break out the Tecnu. This cleanser will break down the oily urushiol on your skin and rinse it away. Use it on those flip-flops and anything else that may have touched that demon weed, too.See ItIvyX Cleansing Towelettes — $58Great for camping. Great to keep in the car. These little wonders are an excellent first defense after a poison ivy encounter. The moment you’re in the clear, grab a couple of these and wipe down.See ItIf you’re looking to not only protect yourself against mosquitoes but actually get rid of them entirely, check out our guide to how to avoid them in the first place.Article originally published June 5, 2017.

Britains most unpopular railway station revealed

Glasgow Queen Street  Passengers’ top priorities for stations include arrival time information, waiting rooms and the overall look and feel of the station, according to Transport Focus.The second worst score was given for the station serving Gatwick Airport, followed by Oxford, and Clapham Junction. These saw satisfaction ratings of 66 per cent, 67 per cent and 69 per cent respectively.Glasgow Queen Street, the third busiest railway station in Scotland, is being upgraded to modernise its appearance and increase its capacity. The station currently handles approximately 20 million passengers a year. This is expected to increase to 28 million by 2030.Under plans, the redevelopment of the station will be completed by June 2019.Commenting on Glasgow Queen Street’s poor satisfaction rating Anthony Smith, the chief executive of Transport Focus, said: “While Glasgow Queen Street is being redeveloped it’s vital that the ScotRail Alliance continues to talk to passengers about the improvements and makes sure staff are on hand to help.”The top four stations were London King’s Cross, London St Pancras, Birmingham New Street and Reading, which all had satisfaction ratings above 90 per cent. A “third world” railway station where passengers are too embarrassed to take friends and relatives has been revealed as Britain’s most unpopular.Only 58 per cent of passengers said they were “satisfied” with Glasgow Queen Street, according to a survey conducted by the independent rail watchdog Transport Focus.The survey was conducted between September and November last year, shortly after a £100 million modernisation project began at the city centre terminal.Passenger Cameron MacIntosh, 32, a sales adviser from Stirling, said: “The station is an absolute bomb site at the moment. It really looks like a place from the third world. I try and avoid it.”John McInnes, a 46-year-old technician from Cumbernauld, commented: “I hope they are going to finish it because it looks a disaster just now.”It’s embarrassing bringing friends or relations here. They can’t believe the mess of the place.” Only 58 per cent of passengers say they are “satisfied” with the stationCredit:Graeme Murray /PA Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
