What’s Bugging You?

Over the weekend I was in my local grocery store when I spotted a large point of purchase display for Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent.  Since mosquitoes tend to like me, I’m always open to new ways to avoid getting bit that doesn’t involve terrible smelling bug spray.

Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent requires no skin application and has no scent.  So this was right up my alley.

The product includes a battery-powered fan that clips on your clothing and circulates the repellent around you.  It seemed like the perfect solution to my mosquito problem.  However, when I took a closer look, there was no way I would actually wear this hideous fan.  It was certainly not developed with fashion forward people in mind.

I can definitely see the benefit for hunters and hikers to purchase this product.  However, if you are out on the patio with friends and family, you could be just as effective fighting mosquitoes by lighting some citronella candles or tiki torches.

Also, after reviewing the web site I found another flaw.  If you move, you have to allow a few minutes for the repellent to start working in your new space.  No thanks.  I guess I’ll stick with stinky bug spray for now!
