I use either Offwoods with DEET or Bull Frog with DEET! Deet is the crucial part. My friends father did a lot of the research on Deet and says that it really works. He says you do NOT need to add more than they suggest. It wont help any more if you add more than they recommend.
However, I say this and nothing works for me. My friends always joke that im the "tenderloin" and theyre the "ribs" (as in the tenderloin=delicious part of the deer and ribs=not as tasty....I have no clue how we started that...)
I literally act as a bug repellant for my friends. Bugs FLOCK to me. I have 20ish bites on my legs at all times...which stinks because I scratch them til I have bruises. So now I look like my boyfriend beats me!
