BTW, I took a little look at the Bug Bite Thing, I haven't bought it or looked for any serious papers on this sort of thing, but at least it's name/marketing is restrained (they're not over hyping it).

I suspect if it works, the results would be akin to urinating on a jellyfish sting or stinging nettle (both of which I've written about before), it works because you BELIEVE it works. Meaning the results are more psychological than physiological.

But, at least at this point, it appears the worst that might happen is a very semetrical hicky.
