Pick a Protection

We have collected some sites that offer information on how to protect yourself and your loved ones from tick bites.

Here are some other helpful resources for choosing a bug repellent.

EWG’s Guide to Bug Repellents in the Age of Zika – The Environmental Working Group’s guide is our favorite and very clear, however the landing page is really Zika-centric, and does not offer names of specific products.

Find the Insect Repellent that is Right for You – This is a good tool from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but gives you broad results unless you know the company/ingredient/etc.

Check out Consumer Report’s Insect Repellent Buying Guide

Personal Protection Measures: Insect Repellents – A Fact Sheet from the Tick-Borne Disease Prevention FAQ Series by the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health, New York.

My Repellent Finder App – Similar to the EPA finder, can search by bug/hours of coverage. It includes a special page for “Will this product be used on a child?

Insect Repellent Locator – Similar to EPA also has notes about using the product on a child.
