My daughter gets huge welts when she gets bitten by a mosquito and it really bothers her. We’re going on vacation next week and I’d like to get mosquito repellent bracelets or stickers. There are so many to choose from. Can anyone give a recommendation for a brand they’ve tried and loved?

I get absolutely eaten alive by mosquitos (I had 35 bites after one family vacation, no one else had more than 4). I get these bracelets from Target and they’ve made a world of difference for me!

Get the spray with eucalyptus oil in it. I frequently wear it because I live in Florida and refuse to have deet anywhere near my body.

I have an all natural herbal spray that has worked better than any bug spray I’ve tried before! I was swarmed with black flies on a hike and as soon as I put on my spray I was untouched. I highly suggest herbal sprays!!

Unfortunately I got it at a farmers market a few years ago

Speaking from experience it’s an allergic reaction so taking an antihistamine (like Allegra in my case), in addition to a strong bug spray like Off Deep Woods, works wonders

Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?

Hey all! We have a candidate we're considering for a management position. One of our partners found a news story about him from a few years ago that's negative, though not necessarily awful. It was a small-town-gossipy local news story about his solo business, but all the comments on it from locals said he's a great guy and very professional. Anyways, this partner would like me to question the candidate about this news story. I'm curious how anyone else would approach this? Any suggestions?
