Mosquito Patch...WTF


Came across this at a sporting goods store the other day. Never seen them before. Apparently you absorb the Vitamin Thiamin B1 in the patch into your skin and then secrete an odor undetectable to man but irritant to mosquitoes and gnats. Anyone ever use one of these and if so how effective where they???

what if there was a nutrient you could ingest that wasnt harmful to you but would kill mosquitos near instantly?

Awesome. I might enjoy fishing at my cabin again if these work

I’m sticking to a liberal application of WD40.

That would be the shit. Especially if the mosquitos exploded on contact. You’d be like a walking talking bug-zapper.

Does that work?

best bug repellant ever?
real cigars (think CAO or Monte Christo, oh Macanudo are particularly effective because of the looser wrap).
especially when it’s high humidity and no breeze when the little buggers would annihilate you - the smoke just hangs in the air.
yeah, not really recommended though.

It’s great for you skin and makes you higly flammable. Two good things, imo.
