Save the Salamanders by avoiding tick and mosquito repellents with picaridin and DEET. Use natural bug repellents instead!

The chemical industry had to synthesize something fresh, new, and cheap, so they did: marketed as a “safer alternative to DEET” pesticide Picaridin has become a staple in chemical insect repellents.
