has anyone ever used the OFF clip on mosquito repellant? if so can you tell me where you used it and if it worked well or not.

I'm going camping and was wondering about it. Thanks!

  • If you buy one, you have to keep it in one spot for it to work. If you walk around with it you'll still get eaten up by mosquitos.

  • I have one and it works, as long as the wind isn't blowing, if it is it just blows the repelant away

  • Yea in my experience no it didn't work well. I like the AVON expedition with SPF 30+ repellent our friends used an off brand and was pulling ticks and getting eaten alive we didn't have one bite or tick and we literally were in the woods for 48 hours

  • We use it in the backyard. I'm the only one that ever gets bitten but I really get eaten up even if I'm out there for only 5 minutes. It's worked great so far for me...but we're also just in the suburbs not in the deep woods or anything so I don't know if that'll make a difference. I like it cuz it's odorless unlike those nasty citronella candles...
