SmarterTravel Pick of the Day: Mosquitno Natural Insect Repellent Wristbands

Prevent bug bites without leaky, smelly cans of insect repellent spray.

What Is It: Silicone rubber wristbands infused with citronella oil.

Why It’s Smart:

• 15 percent concentration of natural citronella oil prevents bug bites

• Non-toxic

• DEET-free

• Waterproof

• Reusable (lasts for six days and comes with a storage pouch)

• More travel-friendly than a spray bottle

Where to Buy: Available on Amazon.
