Bugs are the bane of my existence. I’ve tried a lot of different bug killing gadgets, and while they work and I recommend them, there’s one thing you’ll need irregardless: bug spray. Picking the right bug spray can be tough. There are a few things to pay attention to. First, chemical makeup is important: you need to decide whether you want one that uses DEET, picaridin, or is all-natural. Application method is also a determining factor, as some like aerosol more than pump sprays and vice versa. Finally, bottle size is essential: do you want something you can keep in your pocket, or something to just leave by the door?
