I am a living mosquito magnet. I have been since I was a baby. I am the living target; the motion detector for marauding mosquitoes. I have an arrow pointing to me, my arms, my legs, my back, my face; here she is, fellas. Ready. Set. Attack.
Ah, but now I have a defense system.
Now I can ward mosquitoes off with the flick of a switch.
This little device from the people at S. C. Johnson has been my outdoor companion for almost a week now, with nary a bite. Okay. There is one mosquito bite on my arm which I am certain was from the little stinger who was riding in my car the other day when I did not have the cone of protection on.
The reviews the Off! Clip-On Mosquito repellent are mixed. Some have had no results, others, like myself, have had pretty good luck. This clip on device with a rotating cup and repellent refill operates on AAA batteries, is easy to use, and, I must say, has kept the bugs at bay. I’ve worn it while working in the garden, at the Open Days walk last weekend, and while visiting gardens of others. I keep it by the back door and clip it on when I go out for the mail. (Yes, I’ve often been the victim of random mosquito attacks while going to the mail or emptying the garbage).
A little switch turns the clip device on and the repellent creates some sort of barrier between you and the little pests. From head to toe, a cone of protection. If I’m wearing it and you stand next to me, I’ll twirl around and you will be protected too. I just can’t twirl too much because, you know, well, you know how clumsy I can be, don’t you?
