The Ultimate Guide to the Best Mosquito Repellent

You want to protect your family from potentially harmful chemicals, but you also want effective mosquito control solutions that prevent insect-borne diseases and itchy bites. Is there a solution that gives you both? MosquitoNix® is here to help you determine which natural mosquito repellent best keeps those annoying flying insects away from you and your family. Let's look at some of the most effective natural mosquito repellents that protect you and the environment.

Why It Matters

Nobody wants to be a walking buffet for mosquitoes and other biting insects, but the reasons why are more than skin-deep. Everyone's body reacts to mosquito bites differently. Some people barely get a raised welt or irritation when a hungry female mosquito takes a bite. Others experience more significant itching and swelling. It's tempting to scratch those bites for relief, but scratching can break the skin, making the body more vulnerable to bacterial infections.

Some people also experience allergic reactions to the bite itself. And let's not forget that mosquitoes can carry diseases, including dengue fever, Zika and West Nile virus, yellow fever and malaria, which may be fatal. That's why mosquito repellents and treatments are essential if these flying pests are an issue where you live, work or play.

What Natural Solutions Work

In the past, the best mosquito repellents for personal use or property treatments included DEET and other strong chemicals. Many of today's families want a natural solution that is safer for children and pets but effectively eradicates mosquitoes.

Essential oils, used alone or in blends, work better than you may realize. Research studies support their efficacy, with a caveat: applying a full-strength essential oil directly to your skin can cause irritation. These are some of the top natural mosquito repellents to try:

  • Lemon eucalyptus oil
  • Lavender
  • Cinnamon oil
  • Thyme oil or leaves
  • Soybean oil
  • Neem oil
  • Citronella

Look for natural or organic products with essential oils rather than chemicals to apply to your family's skin before spending time outdoors. Be prepared to reapply as needed if you spend a lot of time outside.
