    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.

      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.

            Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

            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!

            Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

            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 :)

                This is extremely effective. I can walk through the countryside buzzing with the critters and they will not touch me. And I don't have to worry about dangerous toxins or carcinogens. But I can't use it on my face; it's an eye irritant. And it has to be applied with tissues, otherwise it's all over your hands.

                Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

                As I grew up I was told I had "sweet blood - and that was why, even though I have such a bad reaction, the bugs always seem to find me first. I keep this balm in my purse and can rub a bit on my ankles before I walk in grass or if we're sitting outside and it gets to be dusk and I GET NO BUG BITES. None.
                Because the balm is in a tin I can have it with me all the time which is super convenient. Of course it is a balm so you have to actually rub it in rather than spray and it does have a little greasiness, nothing earth shattering, but be prepared. It also has a scent - an herb-y, citrusy scent - so if you are putting this on in a confined space like a car, people will smell it.
                I am very happy with this product and drugstore's price is pretty reasonable compared to the other stores in town.
