These are the insect spray products you recommended to help buzz off mosquitoes, other insects

HOUSTON – Summertime means more time outside but with that comes some uninvited guests to your next barbecue or outdoor event.

Bugs are a major part of Houston summer’s and people usually have a preferred bug spray on hand. Our KPRC 2 Facebook and Instagram followers shared what brand of bug sprays save the day and keep the bugs away from them.

Here’s what they had to say:

‘We just recently tried a Thermacell repellent device for our patio, and it worked GREAT at keeping mosquitos away. I’m glad someone told me to try it. I’m glad I don’t have to spray smelly, sticky stuff on me anymore. Lol! I’m not sure if it helps with other insects, but mosquitos were my primary concern and I’m happy!” - Melanie Worthington
