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:

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.

Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

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.

    Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

    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 :)

      Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

      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.

        Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

        I used this on a month-long field course in the Costa Rican rainforest. Everybody else on the course either smelled like pungent chemicals, or were being eaten alive. I applied only a little bit, and got compliments on my smell every day, despite the fact that showers were few and far between! Not a bite to be seen as well!

        Highly recommended!

          Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

          I use Badger Bug Balm daily on the prominent parts of my face, e.g., nose, cheek bones, forehead, chin to keep away the gnats that plague us in Virginia. It lasts all day, even after I return from my five mile walk in the woods or through the National Park I work in. I refuse to use any product containing environmentally harmful products and these natural ingredients work just as well. I haven't been bitten all summer and the gnats generally stay away from my face. Only drawback is the sometimes difficult to open container.

          Comments about Badger Anti-Bug Balm, 2 oz:

          I live in a remote village in the Alaskan interier. It is wooded, muddy and damp. The mosquitos are aggresivie. I use Badger Bug Balm and it keeps the Mosqitoes away. I use it on my skin daily, it is all natural and safe to use every day, It provides protection as I go about my day. It is a little greasy, but not bad, the smell is of citrenella a little strong but not bad. It is safe for children also.. I even use it on my dogs and it helps keep the mosquitos off of them. I put it on their heads,and ears.

          When I will be going out in the woods or muskeg I add a mosquito net over my head and wear clothes treared with bug repelant.. I am impressed at how effective Badger Bug Balm is against these extremly aggrasive pests.
