I am looking for recommendations for kids, my DD is prone to bad bites and wondered if there is anything that is safe and recommended.

We just use DEET spray on all of us

You don’t need to get something especially for teens as they can probably use the same stuff you’re using.

Something with DEET in it is the only truly effective treatment against getting bites.
Jungle Formula is good, but many supermarkets do their own versions which are just as effective but cheaper.
I think boots do one called Repel.
All are fine for teens to use.

We've used Jungle Formula...worked well for our teens
