A 38-year-old female asked:

Is there a good natural bug repellent that works just as well if not better than off and deet?

Bug repellent: I certainly don't know of anything natural that would beat out DEET. Natural options: If you are looking for a more natural repellent for mosqui-toes consider citronella, lemon eucalyptus oil, soybean oil, geranium oil, clove oil or fennel.
