    We found bug repellant bracelets our local dollar store and thought they would be great for our OOT bags but didn't know if they really worked. Anyone ever used them with success?? Or should be just buy regular spray on bug spray?

    thanks

    personally, i get a rash from the bracelets. but then, i am allergic to everything. just something you might want to think about though. i personally would not be able to use the bracelet if i was one of your guests, so i think the spray is a safer bet.

      Strange! I never heard of them before. If they worked that would be awesome... I hate smelling like bug spray.

      well, if nothing else at least they'd have nice bugbite-free wrists?

        I have never heard of these before. What a cool thing for your OOT bags. I am sure your guests will really appreciate an easy way to keep the bugs away.

          Sounds like a cool idea but I agree with Maura - go with the spray :)

              We found these in the dollar store too and bought them for camping once....I think I came out of the woods with more mosquito bites than I went in with.

                I swear by them I have been using them for my kids for a couple of years now, and my kids who are highly allergic to mosquitto bite's do not get any bites when wearing them. I put one on Liam's wrist and one on his ankle and he is bug bite free. We cottage in the summer up North and they are a godsend. When done with them put them in a baggy and you can get a few uses out of them.
