I'm pretty sure this gets asked every year and I'm sorry for asking again!
We have a street party next weekend and we will be outside most of the evening. DS gets something similar to a small welt when he is bitten by a mosquito. We've managed to fix the problem inside but we don't go out a lot in the evenings so this is a new problem lol
What do you use to protect your child from these horrible things? I am a target for them. They seem to love me and DS is the same. He is 2 and a half and I'm not sure what can be used? It's going to be warm as well so being covered up isn't really going to work.

You can by rubber mosquito bands for their wrist and ankle and then we also spray the kids with the 'OFF' brand repellent

If they are a bit big for wrists then just put on the ankle. I've bought them from chemists and also online

Last year I used Moogoo tail swat and vanilla Mozi. Both were really good. X

I used plain old unscripted aero guard a few weeks ago. I was getting bitten left right and centre but as soon as I sprayed that all over me, I didn't get any more bites, it didn't smell and I couldn't feel it on my skin.
I think they say the higher the DEET the strong/better it is but I find those ones can be very greasy and stink.

Ok...so science has only proven 2 mosquito repellents that actually work (that are available in Australia )...and there has been bucket loads of research in the area due to mosquito borne disease. The products you need are a DEET based repellent (preferably 30%, but if less it will need reapplying every 2hrs) or a Picaridin based product. Both are available at the supermarket and are safe for use on a 2.5yo.
