Rated 4 out of 5 by Dawndawn So far, so good...worth a try.
Bought these for my daughter who was spending the summer in the New Hampshire mountains. She was suffering extreme bites and not having luck with deet based repellants. Also, we did not want the risks associated with deet. The bracelets have lessened the bites, although still a few. She must wear them around the clock and since they last about 5 days, if they continue to work, I will reorder. She is also using a Badger Repellant stick, a natural balm, which has helped. I am hoping Gaiam will offer the bracelets in a larger package (10 or 20 bracelets at a discounted price per bracelet. I have seen larger packages offered elsewhere. I will be trying these bracelets myself in a month when I visit. Sure hope they work for me, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandik Worked great!
We purchased these items for our family vacation to Yellowstone National Park. My daughter is usually a mosquito magnet, but these wristbands helped greatly and she was not bothered at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Unaa Maybe I imagined it...
I'm pregnant so I can't use any regular mosquito repellant and after I read the instructions and warnings on those Off! clip ons, those were out too. These things are awesome. I wear two at a time, I put one on my wrist and one on the opposite ankle, for not having any chemicals in them they work great. Mosquitos would come close but I'd wave my hand and they'd take off. The trick seems to be to move around enough to keep the fragrance circulating around you. I almost didn't buy them because of how much they are, but I'm really glad I did. I thought for sure I'd regret it. It's nice to finally find an effective mosquito repellant that isn't like putting poison directly on you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyCx Works better than any other product for mosquitos!
My 2 year old is extremely sensitive to mosquitos - they will bite him day & night, even if he is outside for 2 minutes only! We don't want to use harmful or questionable chemical products, and have tried an assortment of natural products and oils - even some made for Africa from a friend who visits there! There is NOTHING available that we have found better than this product - and so easy - we can put it on his ankle, or even on a backpack he is in or on his back belt loop, etc. Our whole family now wears one when going outside!!! It is nice to know it is geranium oil derived, and is even waterproof for children running under sprinklers, swimming, etc!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VTShopper Keep the bugs off!
I have serious reactions to insect bites, and am unable to use most commercial insect repellants, so I decideed to give these a try at Fourth of July fireworks. I used one on my wrist, one on my ankle. Other folks were swatting and scratching. I suffered not a single bite. I recommend them highly.
