Best Mosquito Repellent - Ah, the summer breeze whipping through your hair as beautiful song birds sing in perfect cadence. For most, the season doesn’t get any better than this. Summertime is when folks venture outdoors again, fire-up the grills, prune their lawns and have a glass of lemonade in the shade. But what’s that noise It’s almost like a miniature fighter jet about to strike. Nope, it’s another pesky mosquito. Just as you go to slap him against your forearm, his buddy bites your neck. We all know this irksome aspect of summertime all too well. It’s something most of us could do without. I can only dream of a world without mosquitoes and ticks. Those are the two I’d obliterate. Anyway, this is not a feasible solution. Obviously insects are here to stay. So you can either stay inside your homes, or keep a bunch of frogs and toads on your property to eat them. Now how does that sound Oh, I almost forgot; you could also hit up the local drugstore for the best mosquito repellent known to mankind.

It’s always been DEET. This is still the key ingredient in many of the best mosquito repellents. This ingredient basically thwarts a mosquito’s receptors so that he can’t detect your body heat.

Some alternatives use lemon eucalyptus to deter mosquitoes from attacking and feeding on human skin. There are actually quite a few alternatives to DEET on the market. Now, if you really want to go all-out with the best mosquito repellent of modern times, you should give the mosquito magnet a shot. This new-age device will keep your entire yard fee of nasty mosquitoes. It uses a type of radio waves to repel the little buggers. Unfortunately these innovations are an investment, and can run you 500 smackers. It all depends on how badly you want to see those mosquitoes gone.

Always use a repellent of some sort. Whether your choice is a DEET mosquito spray or one of the best mosquito repellent alternatives, don’t forget to apply prior to spending time outdoors. The West Nile virus is now in full-effect. This is one illness that has no cure. Protect yourself and your little ones from getting bit-up this summer.
