    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Coiled clay-like material which is set on top
    of included stands which will serve as a biting and nuisance
    flying pest repellent when lit. When burning, they will release
    a pleasant odor to people but one that is highly repellent
    to pests. They will burn slowly and generally will last 2 or
    more hours per coil.

    TARGET PESTS: Mosquitoes, No-Seeums, gnats and biting flies.

    WHERE TO USE IT: Around decks, patios and other areas where you
    want to help minimize nuisance flying insects.

    RATE OF APPLICATION: Try to place one every 10 feet around the
    area or areas you want to protect.
    Duh - should've said what they were! We found them at REI really cheap, and they burn for about 6 hours - which is perfect at night if you want to sleep with the sound of the ocean. We got a bunch for us and for our guests!

      My sister and FH liked the circles on the front, my mom and I did not. So, we took them off. It took no time at all and was really easy, we used a seem ripper. This is what they look like now.

      They are pink and brown on the inside and have zipper pockets and cell phone pockets. I love them and got 25 of them. They will also hold a lot of stuff, I think they are perfect. I now need a bag for the men.

              Is there a costco over there? maybe you can buy the bottled water when you get there and then just have the labels done already and replace the ones that came with with you labels? That way you don't have to transport that heavy water!!!

                That's what I did, I got the water at Sam's and I already had the labels, I just put them over the original labels

                  Thanks for the feedback!

                  Some of the girls at work suggested buying the bottles of water there as well. I’m going to start looking into where I can purchase the water and about how much it might cost. There are a lot of unknowns…..

                  What I thought about doing, since I’m doing a beach wedding, is finding some cute sand buckets, fill it with ice and put the bottles of water in them. Then I could place them on the outside isles at the ceremony. The guests could get them before and after the ceremony (who knows how hot and sunny it will be that day). Just an idea….and a lot of materials needed (bottle water, sand buckets, ice).

                    Oh that's a good idea about the buckets w/ the bottle waters. I don't know if I can do that...they said no outside food or beverage!! HOW RUDE!!! :)

                      I was thinking about your dilemma and thought maybe you can ask how much it would cost to purchase the water bottles from them and just have the labels ready.

                      I didn’t think of that until just now, I’m going to look into the cost of that for me as well.

                      Having a place to throw ideas around is great!
