We are a busy family of 5 (not including animals). 2 boys and a girl, aged between 6 and 12. As that is the case, they all play baseball and living in the Deep South (Florida), mosquitos and yellow flies are the bane of our existence. They have always been ferocious but now they are carriers of something extra “special” in the form of the Zika virus. We are done with having children but one of the ways the virus spreads is by infected people getting bit by non-carrying mosquitos and the previously non-carrying winged vermin have it to share. It is a vicious situation in which the number of mosquitos carrying it and the number of people getting infected increases exponentially.
Nonetheless, these bracelets have made our long, arduous evening practice routine less painful and calms our fears a bit. Anything we can do to help prevent the spread is good news to us.
These bracelets have a very strong citronella scent and they seem to be working very well. I’ll update if they don’t last long enough or lose their effectiveness quickly. They can be easily stretched out and are non-toxic so no worries about the kids wearing them.
Smells strong but I like it (could be a con to some)
Helps stop the proliferation of the Zika virus
Easy to stretch out if your 6 year old plays with it very roughly
I despise spraying DEET bug spray on as it just seems like it could be harmful so these have helped prevent us from having to do that.
