Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bug Bam I was laying I a hammock on the beach in Turks and Caicos at around 9pm. I had bug bam attached to my left wrist. In 5 minutes I had 9 mosquito bites on the back of my right arm, 4 on my right leg and 2 on my left leg. Maybe it worked for my girlfriend since she was laying next to me and didn't get a single bite but definitely did not work for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to tell if it made a significant difference. I wore these on a backpack trip to Rubicon reservoir recently. The first one I put on broke off immediately because the little plastic fastener cracked in half. I ended up hanging it from my hat on a little piece of fishing line. Mosquitoes were still landing on me . Not quite sure I would solely rely on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work as advertised I bought these for a trip to Costa Rica where I expected heavy mosquito activity. I wanted something that was easy to use for adults, teens and young children and not DEET based. We spent time in the central rain forest as well as on the Pacific coast. Surprisingly there were not very many mosquitos in either location. We did receive some bites when not wearing the bands but many fewer bites when wearing them. They seemed to work just as well after swimming and overall worked to keep the mosquitos away. Some in our party wore the band on the wrist, some on the ankle and sometimes we just put them on the table - all locations seemed to be about the same effectiveness. The package indicates approx 100 hours of effectiveness out of the packaging. I did notice the smell was decreased after a few days of use, for 12-14 hours per day but I wouldn't say the effectiveness was measurably reduced. The smell is pleasant. I was skeptical before buying but figured I would give them a try. I would buy again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I Wish This Worked... I had high hopes this mosquito band would repel those pesky bugs and keep me itch free. Well, unfortunately no. I wore one bracelet and was optimistic it would do the trick as I could smell the citronella. I ended up with several mosquito bites on each of my shoulders. Maybe a redesign of the product would help? Or perhaps one might use this bracelet in addition to other repellent?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works and easy to use. These are more economical as a 2 pack than ones' I've purchased in past at a large discount chain. I found that these tend to come off while hiking, and I've learned to secure them with a tiny strip of duct tape at the fastening ends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Natural Bug repellant bracelets worked great in AK Even though mosquitos were bad on my recent back-country hiking and pack rafting trip in Alaska, these bracelets seemed to help a lot. The natural ingredients smelled good to me but apparently not the insects around me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This worked! I used this mosquito band on my wrist and also put it on my hat. It seemed to work pretty good. I used this along with Jungle Juice. I did not get as many bites as my buddies.
