Ex Officio makes a pretty wide range of children's clothing with Buzz Off. Examples: A two-tone long-sleeve crew ($42; www.exofficio.com) and convertible pants with zip-off legs ($48). Which, I admit, is a little pricey for two kids who will outgrow it all in one summer.
Budget considerations aside, you might still find that a little insect repellent is helpful, especially on exposed ankles or necks. However, the Buzz Off clothing gives you a real head start on battling summer's perennial double scourge of sunburn and bugs.
