    I bought this as a natural alternative to traditional bug sprays and took it with me on my honeymoon to Belize. I wore it the whole time we were there, including on a hike through a rain forest ... and it poured on us half-way through. I didn't have a single bite, but my husband (who didn't think the stuff would work) was covered with bites. I use it now on my baby when we go camping or hang out in the backyard or at the pool. It IS a balm, so be sure to rub it in or it'll be way too greasy and always re-apply after getting really wet. Oh and it lasts forever, just don't leave it in the sun or it melts:)

    I've always loved Badger Balm products. I purchased the Anti-Bug Balm for use on my 18 month old daughter. She goes outside every day in our wooded yard and is an adventurous bug catcher. The product works great, no bug bites at all. It smells fantastic- like orangey citronella. It rubs in very quickly with no greasy, wet, or tacky after effect. My only complaint is that the container does not go far. After applying every day for 2 weeks we needed to buy more.

          Very easy to apply on your skin. A little goes a long way. Here in S. Florida, it's not only hot and humid, but very buggy as well. This product works very well. Keeps you comfortable even when doing yardwork. Highly recommend.

            Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

            We live in "buggy" south Florida. At times it's impossible here on hot, muggy days. We don't like using pestisides but it really gets like a steamy jungle here during the rainy season. My husband is an amateur carpenter and general fixer-upper and spends a lot of time outdoors in and out of his workshop. He has tried just about everything but most of those things are pretty toxic. He recently tried Badger Anti-Bug Balm and told me it does the trick! I'm so glad because I don't have to worry about him breathing toxic fumes or rubbing toxic gunk into his skin. If Badger works in steamy South Florida, it works everywhere else. This is a keeper!

                I had high hopes for this non toxic product and applied it liberally for our first camping trip of the season in spring. We camped in Wisconsin after heavy rains. Unfortunately, the mosquitos feasted on me. I tried it a few times after at home in Chicago but it seems to have no effect. I am sad to say I've given up and stick with the little personal fan on my belt that blows out bug repellent. That always works for me.

                  I use this product at night when sleeping. It prevents bug bites (I leave my window open) and keeps mosquitos from biting also. I'm not particularly thrilled with the fragrance, but it's not bad. And what's more important is that it works!

                  As the one person that the mosquitoes flock to, I'm thrilled that this product keeps them away. It takes a little while to apply since it's a balm, but I recently used it in the late afternoon and never reapplied during an outdoor party that lasted until 10pm. No bites. No kidding.

                  This product worked and is good to travel with since it's not a liquid. Best way to apply is to scrape the balm with the back of your fingernails, place it where you want and then rub in.

                    This stuff really works and to top it...the ingredients are organic. I do not like using products with toxic chemicals or un-natural ingredients in general. I was so relieved to find this product on drugstore.com. I apply it to my skin right before I go outside (I live in a wooded area in the country). Usually the mosquitoes and noseeums go to town on me, leaving me with bites all over. Since I started using Badger Bug Balm, I have been bite free :)
