Summer is on the horizon, and we're eager for days spent in the sun and late nights hanging out with friends. We are dreading one tiny, buzzing insect, though. Mosquitos are the worst, and they can take a day outside from pleasant to completely miserable (and very itchy!). This summer, we're gearing you up to keep those pesky creatures at bay with top-rated devices, candles, wearable sprays, incense sticks and more — all of which are available on Amazon for fast, free shipping.

Best Mosquito Repellers for Outdoors

$26.50 $21.97

Make your outdoor space — from a patio or porch to your campsite — a mosquito-free zone with the Thermacell Patio Shield. With no cords or batteries required, the heat-activated device uses naturally occurring repellents found in plants to create a 20-foot area of protection.

$24.99 (Pack of 2)

No stinky scents here. This candle has 30 hours of burn time to keep your outdoor space bite-free, and it's good for the environment. Made of a 100 percent soy and beeswax blend, the candle features five plant-based repellent oils: rosemary, peppermint, citronella, lemongrass and cedarwood.


Your tiki torches aren't just for decoration and illumination anymore. They can also fight against those pesky insects that leave welts all over our arms and legs. For each 12-ounce refill, the citronella and cedar formula burns for up to five hours so you can party the night away in pest-free peace.

$24.99 (2 Packs of 12)

If you want a more natural option for barring mosquitoes, opt for these incense sticks. Packed with 10 percent plant-based repellent oils, they provide protection for over two hours and don't fill your space with harmful chemicals or smells. To burn the incense sticks safely and cleanly, grab this ceramic holder.

$12.99 $11.91

Get rid of mosquito larvae before they become uninvited guests in your backyard. Place these dissolvable pouches in any standing water (rain barrels, gutters, bird baths and ponds) to kill mosquito larvae. Each pouch works for up to two months and can be used in areas with people and pets.

Best Wearable Mosquito Repellent

$13.99 $9.1

When you’re on the move, candles and incense sticks won't keep pace with you. Feel safe and repel mosquitoes with this DEET-free wearable spray. Made with lemon eucalyptus oil, the insect repellent allows you to enjoy the outside without fear of being bit for up to six hours.

$11.99 $9.95

With over 11,000 five-star ratings, this fragrance-free lotion is a fan favorite. The non-greasy formula deters mosquitoes for up to 14 hours and is safe to use on clothing and backpacks and won't damage plastics or synthetic coatings.

$13.46 $9.85

Though a lot of people want to keep DEET use to a minimum, sometimes it's necessary to protect against harmful diseases, such as Zika, Dengue and West Nile. This aerosol spray is formulated with 25 percent DEET to give you long-lasting protection when you need it.

$12.99 $9.99

Available in packs of 10, 25 or 50, these mosquito-repellent bracelets are ideal for on-the-go fun. Since you don't have to worry about spills, you can keep the individually wrapped bands in your bag and slip them on whenever you or your kiddos need protection.

$21.99 $19.98

Spray on yourself and your gear without worrying about chemicals, strange scents or dyes. With 30 percent lemon eucalyptus oil, this natural spray is designed to protect against mosquitoes for up to six hours.

Best Mosquito Repellent for Kids


Since lotions last longer than sprays, they're ideal for families, especially when you're going to be outdoors for hours on end camping, hiking or fishing. This particular formula contains DEET, but it encapsulates it in a protein that releases the DEET over a long period of time — up to 11 hours. Not only does it give you worry-free protection, but you also don't have to apply it over and over again.

$5.99 $5.48

For the tiniest members of our groups, we have to keep them protected from nasty bites — in a very gentle way. This natural insect repellent is made with plant and essential oils and without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes.


Another handy item to stow in your bag during bug season is these wipes. As soon as you hear a buzz in the air, pull out the towelettes and watch the mosquitoes flee. Light and clean, they make it easy to apply repellent on sensitive areas, such as faces, ears and necks.

$12.99 $11.99

Feel good about your protection and where your dollars are going. Badger is a women-owned, family business that makes their products in a solar-powered facility. The all-natural bug spray uses pure essential oils to detract pesky bugs for three hours, and when you’ve used all the product, you can recycle the aluminum bottle.

$14.95 (Pack of 60)

Make fighting mosquitos fun for your kids with these stickers made with all-natural, plant-based ingredients. Place the stickers on clothing, backpacks, strollers and chairs to deter mosquitoes from taking bites out of your nearest and dearest. DEET-free and non-toxic, the citronella stickers are easy to use and oh-so convenient.
