The best natural insect repellent

Monkey Frog

Marty’s photo of the day #2021: If you are viewing this photo on a small screen, you probably won’t see all the little red mosquito bites dotting my arm. The first time I visited the Amazon Rainforest was during the dry season, and the bugs (other than a bullet ant with my name on it) weren’t bad at all. The second time I visited the Amazon was during the rainy season, and I got eaten alive. In this photo from that second adventure, I’m trying out a low-tech natural repellent, called the Frog-O-Matic. And it seemed to work, as not a single mosquito was biting me when the photo was taken.
