Weigh In Wednesday: Bug Spray

Well, Spring is here and with spring brings the re-birth of all of God's wonderful creatures including those pesky beings we call BUGS!!! While yes bugs do serve a purpose in life, I still haven't figured it out as I am sure most people haven't...LOL!! Nothing is more annoying than trying to enjoy a meal or playtime outside and being surrounded by flies, mosquitoes or other flying creatures.

 So while you are venturing out of hibernation and enjoying your camping, hiking, or just general time outside, which bug spray do you favor? And for all you Mommas out there, do you have any tips on keeping your family safe from bugs and critters this spring/summer?


  1. Last year, I bought EcoSmart organic insect repellent. I LOVE it. It keeps bugs away and it smells really good too since it contains cinnamon leaf oil, rosemary oil, and lemongrass oil. It it nice that it is safe for the kiddos too :)

  2. I prefer Skin So Soft because I'd rather not put deet on my babes even though I have. I really like the Off clip on fans. They're great for the drive in, we clip a couple to the back of the van and stay bug free.

    I'm excited about Lindy's stuff.

  3. Burt's Bees Herbal Insect Repellant. Probably similar to EcoSmart, it smells great and actually works! I always order from for great prices on it and natural sunscreens too!The bug spray is only $5.23 through this site.
