The best kids’ bug sprays for your next holiday jaunt or when the weather gets warm
WARM weather is delightful with kids, so long as you’ve got plenty of kids' bug spray to hand.
Pesky bugs are annoying enough, but bug bites are unpleasant and cause itchiness and discomfort in kids; if your child has an allergy to certain bugs, bugs can do far worse damage.
We’ve selected the best kids’ bug spray based on natural insect repellents and those with kid-safe chemicals that parents vouch for.
We all want to protect our kids from insects carrying dangerous diseases like dengue, malaria, West Nile and Zika, as well as keeping them safe from other annoying, biting bugs.
There are plenty of kids’ bug sprays available that are all-natural, with ingredients like rosemary, citronella and lemongrass.
If you’d rather go for a stronger chemical option, it is safe to use bug sprays containing DEET, the active ingredient in most insect repellents, for kids.
However, guidelines suggest you should choose a bug spray containing less than a 30% concentration of DEET, and that kids’ bug sprays with DEET shouldn’t be used on kids younger than two months’ old.
Wearing long sleeves and shoes and socks can also help to prevent bug bites. And remember: apply your layer of suncream before spraying on the bug spray.

Just like sun cream, kids' bug spray can be a struggle to apply on kids because of an off-putting smell; with citronella, peppermint, rosemary and geranium, Babyganics' natural insect repellent is pungent for insects but manages to be subtly appealing to kids.
The best part? The non-greasy formula actually works, according to parents.
If you want a more concentrated insect repellent containing DEET, Off!'s unscented version has a 7% concetration and can be used in the most insect-heavy areas.

This herbal kids' bug spray is paraben-free and contains a lovely combination of rosemary, lemongrass, cedar, castor, peppermint, citronella, clove and geranium oils.
Parents say it works brilliantly and smells delicious, but do warn that it's oily.
Fans say this DEET-free insect repellent is the best they've ever used and it's suitable for babies three months and up.
The natural, non-greasy formulation has active ingredient PMD and a subtle citrus smell.
Parents say it works to keep bugs from bugging in locations around the globe, from Koh Samui to Kefalonia.
Vie's kids' natural bug spray is tested by dermatologists on sensitive skin, making it a popular option that's gentle enough for use on babies (from three months). Contains PMD.
If you need a bathroom cupboard bug spray alternative, nothing beats baby oil as a home remedy, according to many mums.
Johnson's used to have a creamy aloe vera formulation that parents swore worked wonders – since that no longer seems to be on the market, you can try the brand's baby oil with aloe vera.
Aloe may work as a natural repellent, and can also soothe and help heal any bites, so it might be useful to have in your suitcase just in case.
