Mosquitoes love me, they really do. I can’t go out for more than 15 minutes without getting bitten at least once. Well that was before the Don’t Bite Me mosquito repellent patch.
A few months ago I saw a commercial for mosquito repellent patches. I couldn’t believe something so simple could work so well. I’ve been a long time user of DEET based Cacher’s Cologne. I hate using sprays but I didn’t have much choice if I was going to to out geocaching in the woods. I knew I had to try the patches.
I have not been out caching three times and I can say that I have returned bite free. At one point yesterday I was in a particularly mosquito infested area. Several times there were mosquitoes on my arms and legs. I thought they might have been biting me but today I don’t have any bite marks. I’d have to say the patches worked.
It turns out that I’m just over the recommended size for a single patch. This means I need to wear two patches. The recommendations say to place the patch on a hairless area of the body. Easier said then done in my case. I resorted to my shoulders or my buttocks. Applying them to the shoulder is a much more suitable if applying them in public.
You might want to give these patches a try.
