  • not really sure. i know they have natural bug repellents but cant name any off hand. they have that one that is a little device that you have near you, it think the OFFs brand makes them. the city spray every week where im at so we dont have a lot of problems with mosquitos

  • California Baby - Bug Repellent Spray Natural Bug Blend -A safe and natural alternative to toxic bug repellent chemicals. Non-toxic, DEET free, non-chemical, hypoallergenic formula repels bugs while it soothes existing bites with organic aloe vera, yucca, Irish moss and herbs that are specific to the healing of the skin. Lemon eucalyptus and citronella do not cause harm to humans, pets or the environment.

    and the other one is the off clip repellent so you can protect your baby without having to put anything her. not sure how well it works though. and i just thought of something we used when we lived out in the country. we got those tiki torches and special fliud to burn in them that repelled bugs and those seemed to work well, not fool proof but better than nothing
