    Disclaimer: don’t punch nazis in the face right now. Instead, pie them. (Nazi punching acceptable if they gain more power. Current goal, make them ridiculous again)

    I remember that one (or both?) of you hates being outside when it’s hot, but for people who have to be (or love to be!) outdoors, I have to say that I’m a fan of picaridin. I spend most of my free time gardening in a wildlife friendly yard that is infested with chiggers, ticks and mosquitoes, so I’ve tried lots of products. Products with 5% picaridin are OK for sitting on the porch if there aren’t too many mosquitoes around, but 15-20% picaridin works all day against chiggers and mosquitoes. I’m a wimp about strong odors, and I can use Repel Gear Safe and Sawyer 20% Picaridin with no problems. Natrapel worked well, but the odor was so overwhelming I had to throw it out. (I despise DEET and am so glad that there are now good alternatives!)

      The article talks about that–it doesn’t actually say all repellents are useless, though it does specifically mention some that DH was considering at target as being useless, and thus not a great idea for our kids whose summer camps require repellent.

        I used to be in a lab that tested natural products as mosquito repellents. Some of them worked OK in lab experiments, but none of them worked well in a real life situation. I guess mosquitoes are pretty driven to bite us!
