DEET has been the tried and true mosquito repellant for years. This harsh chemical keeps mosquitos at bay but also has several side effects.

Two new studies have found that similar applications of DEET and Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus have similar results. Each product was tested on American Mosquitos.

Oil of Eucalyptus is a plant-based repellant that is registered with the EPA. There are fewer side effects with this more natural product.

DEET has several health issues. Lethargy, seizures, headaches, convulsions, involuntary movements, and tremors can be caused by DEET.

Many outdoor enthusiasts would use anything that would keep the Blood sucking beasts off them. Native peoples would use Bear Grease, mud, and manure to keep the mosquitos at bay.

Always use a product that seems to be comfortable ad effective for your needs.
