These Mosquito Sticks Could Be the Perfect Solution to Avoiding the Itch


Trending Now


Backyard barbecues and summer campouts are filled with fun, but they also come with bugs. Lots and lots of bugs.

While your kids might love exploring insects, no one likes getting bitten by mosquitoes. These spray-free mosquito sticks could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Bug spray can help avoid the bite, but with most potent sprays containing DEET, you might not want to trade protection from bugs for exposure to chemicals. That’s where the Murphy Mosquito Sticks come in. All you have to do is the light the stick, kind of like you would light an incense stick, and place it in a candle holder nearby and you’re set to enjoy the outdoors bite-free.

The Amazon reviews are a ringing endorsement boasting hundreds of satisfied buyers saying things like “they work as well or better than any citronella or incense style bug deterrent” and “I use them every night and have no bites!”

The DEET-free sticks come in an 8-pack for $7.80 on Amazon and are available in a variety of scents including rosemary, peppermint, citronella, lemongrass, cedarwood and bamboo.
