What works for getting rid of mosquitos?

What have you used that works well? I don't like to put bug spray all over myself and I know I can but I don't want to put it on my dd.

  • We use a bug spray call Buzz Off by Quantum. It has citronella oil, amongst other ingredients and is fairly non-toxic.
    Your instincts are good, to keep toxins off of your daughter. I use the skin deep data base to check the safety of products:
