At our house, we are outside all the time tending to our pets, having family fun, or just enjoying a swim in our pool. However, we have to fight the pesky mosquitoes, and I don't want to this year.  I swear the mosquitoes swarm me every time I go outside lately, my husband says it's my sweet blood. Ok, whatever it is it's annoying. My son loves to swim and some days if the mosquitoes are too bad we won't go and I know that crushes him.

Got Pesky Mosquitoes- Fight Back with Guardian Deet Free Repellent

I hate getting bit by mosquitoes, and the itching drives me crazy.  Then when the kids get bit, it's like 100x worse because there is a lot of whining and questions, but I get it, mosquito bites SUCK (literally…haha)! Plus as a mom, I'm also very nervous about the bites due to the diseases mosquitoes carry now.  So when I was at Kroger the other day, I checked out the mosquito repellent area and guessed what caught my eye….Guardian Deet Free- Mosquito & Tick Repellent.

I bought it, and when we got home, I sprayed it on and took the dogs out for a walk and not one mosquito came around.  Usually, I'm shooing them away from the dogs and myself.  Let me tell you a little bit more about Guardian, and you will see why I wanted to try it out!

Guardian is a plant-based, non-toxic alternative to DEET chemical repellents that work and does what it says it will do-repels the mosquitoes!


  • A safe and non-toxic alternative with plant-based respect for your body, your health, your children, and the environment.
  • No chemical smells and doesn’t leave that sticky residue like chemical compounds.
  • Is safe for use around your outdoor equipment. DEET, on the other hand, damages and corrodes plastics, nylon gear, and some clothing.
  • Provides a solution for people who have skin sensitivity to DEET or for whom DEET doesn’t work effectively.
  • Extremely effective against mosquitoes and ticks, but lasts without a need for frequent reapplication.

Oh yes, it is that time of year again. Our rendezvous with the pesky mosquitoes. I am happy there are mosquito repellents available that are DEET free. I will pick up a bottle or two of Guardian to keep my family protected.

This is perfect for the summer especially if you're planning something outdoors, like camping or hiking with the whole family. It's a product that you want in your bag at all times.

We also use a DEET-free, organic mosquito repellent and I don't let my son go anywhere without it. Dengue can be pretty scary so I'd rather be the overprotective mom who practically bathes her child in mosquito repellent! :)
