Does a combination sun screen, bug repellent exist? or should I just choose between skin cancer, or west nile virus?
I have tried both in different combinations and it seems they are like oil and water. I even tried the idiotic Off brand clip-on (to my pdf) with no effect.

Bull Frog's combo has worked well for me iover the past two years.
Apparently the bullfrog combo |

is not sold in the mid west. I use bullfrog superblock and cutter bug spray and the cutter makes the bullfrog very water and sweat soluble.

I use Bullfrog Mosquito Coast a combination sunscreen insect repellent and have never had a problem finding it in the midwest states of Iowa and Missouri. I usually find it at Walgreens, some supermarkets, or heaven forbid, Walmart.
Agree with the Bullfrog|

I use it all the time when I am on the water or just working outside. It does contain Deet so if you have any deet allergies use caution.
Suggest changing out the Bullfrog|

if it sits for a while. Meaning, if you only use half a bottle for a season. Replace it with fresh one beginning of the next. ... I swear it eats away at its container and has some weird side effect when applied.
Luckily, I am done fathering children|

Though it seems not to work as well as Bens for biting bugs in the subtropics its better than nothing. Body chemistry likely plays a part. The folks in Everglades City swear by it and stock an ample supply. It must work better for others than me.
This Google thing|

I just typed in "bug and sunscreen" and got a whole lotta results. I used to use a product called (cleverly enough) Sun and Bug and it seemed to work as advertised.
