You don’t have to let bugs annoy you throughout the summer. Keep bugs from biting by applying insect repellent. There is no excuse to not use a bug spray when you have so many choices, and because mosquitoes can carry diseases that could make you and your family sick, using an insect repellent is always a good idea when you are spending time outside. Check out some of your bug repellent options below:
