Now that summer is here, unfortunately so are those pesky bugs and mosquitoes! You should enjoy spending time outdoors with your family, friends and little ones without having to worry about getting bitten. However, most bug repellents contain DEET, a poisonous chemical. Yet, it’s apparently “safe” in small doses; even for children! As it may be effective at preventing mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and the West Nile virus; The New York Times cites that the symptoms from DEET exposure often include skin irritation, rashes, hives, difficulty breathing, disorientation, seizures, nausea and vomiting. These symptoms are all sure fire ways to ruin a family camping trip or hike. This summer, take the time to read what’s in your bug spray; there is no need to endanger yourself and especially your children when it comes to keeping those bugs away!
