My Thoughts …
I bought these for Girl Scout camp. I hate spraying the kids with bug spray so I thought these would be great. Then we had a super cool and not buggy camp week (YAY!) Since then the heat has arrived and so have the bugs. I have used these on the kids when we are out in the yard for awhile several times. On the 4th of July when Brian set off the small package of fireworks, I actually just set these on the deck rail as the kids and I stood there watching. I will say the sticky doesn’t seem to hold them enough for my crazy active kids so I have use double sided tape and that works pretty good. Brian also suggested putting them on the kids’ backs instead of the front of their shirts (like church nursery, daycare, etc.!) These work for 72 hours so if you keep them in a baggie you can put them back on the next day which makes them reasonable for your budget!
I found these at Harris Teeter and they were on sale that day. You can find them for a little more on Amazon if you can’t find them in your local stores though!
What bug repellant solution does your family use during the summer? Leave me a comment and let me know!
