Repel 100 managed to ward off all of its pesky competitors in the nomination round to run away with the title of your favorite bug spray.

Here’s what you had to say:

THIS THIS THIS! I am so sick of every product claiming it is “just as effective as DEET”, even those with supposed scientific studies. NOTHING is as effective as full strength DEET. Many of those product claims are based on low concentrations. This stuff does wonders on mosquitos and black flies.

My biochemist friends are big fans of DEET and back the research that shows it is safe (it’s been around and used for decades). That said, they suggest limiting contact with small children. Best to put it on clothes rather than skin. Also, this high a concentration will actually melt some plastics - so will nail polish remover but that regularly comes in contact with skin too, so don’t rant about that making it unsafe, just use accordingly. - posigrade

If you’re wary of using Deet, our deal researcher Corey had his own recommendation.

For parents with small kids, Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Natural Insect Repellent is the only thing I’ve found that repels mosquitoes without Deet. - Corey Foster
