A year or so ago I bought a bottle of Neem oil and promptly forgot why I bought it and what it was good for. Well now I know. Neem oil is a natural bug repellant that is completely non-toxic to mammals but which bugs hate with a passion. Voracious Japanese beetles would rather starve to death than eat soybean plants treated with the stuff. So if you are looking for a non-toxic alternative for Deet laden bug repellants that are harmful to you and your children, try your health food store and get yourself some Neem oil.
