When the sun is shining and the weather is perfectly warm, there's no doubt you want to spend your time outdoors. However, along with sunshine and fresh air, there are a few pesky pests that can quickly turn a pleasant experience into a nightmare. Mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, and other insects and bugs are not only annoying to deal with, but also can affect our health if we get bitten. That's why it's extremely important to invest in a quality bug spray or two for those summer adventures. Not sure where to begin? We rounded up the best bug sprays on the market, including natural options, for all skin types.

When it comes to choosing the best insect repellent for your skin, you need to consider effectiveness, skin sensitivity, and other personal preferences. If you're looking for reliable protection, DEET-based sprays are your best bet, but if you're not a fan of the smell, go for options that are picaridin-based. We also included several natural bug repellents for those who prefer ones containing essential oils that are a little more eco-friendly. We even found a bug spray that works on fabrics, so you don't have to spray on your skin directly. From outdoor BBQs and dinner parties to camping and hiking adventures, you'll be able to do it all without getting bitten. Keep reading to shop our top picks and have a pest-free summer.
