Looking for the best mosquito repellent wristbands for your family holiday trips? You may need to read this important information on which mosquito repellent wristbands are best to use such as DEET or DEET FREE.
DEET: The problems that can occur when using DEET can be anything from skin irritation, eye irritation, feeling sick or nauseous. severe cases have caused a coma but are extremely rare. It should never be ingested, always wash your hands after applying or touching products containing DEET.
Although DEET is a great insect and mosquito repellent there are great natural alternatives that are readily available and are scientifically proven to work extremely well.
DEET FREE MOSQUITO REPELLENT WRISBANDS: Do they work?
The answer is yes, even the medical experts are in agreement that in scientific trials they are very effective against mosquitos and other nasty insects including ticks.
“Why I personally tried the alternative to DEET”
Due to my heart condition and on warfarin, my recent stroke and not forgetting my eczema I felt I needed a good alternative. I was more worried about applying DEET due to the effects it may have with my warfarin INR levels.
After some initial researching I eventually found a natural alternative that did not require me to spray the product on the skin. This would now not effect warfarin INR levels or my eczema. It was a simple case of using natural mosquito repellent wristbands when I go camping or fishing (which I love to do).
Due to some great reviews and the large amount of sales they make on these mosquito bands it was a no brainer for me. My partner and I found they work extremely well and WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO A DEET ALTERNATIVE.
The Travpack premium silicon bands last for 250 hours per bracelet which is great for travelling in the UK and for taking abroad on your holidays. They are infused with natural citronella oils that are harmless to us but mosquitos Hate It!! That’s great news for you and me…
The one thing I didn’t like was their look when wearing them, now don’t get me wrong they did work great and my partner Katrina had no problem with the look at all. I would have thought children wouldn’t have my issues on the look either.
Personally for me though being a bloke, I’ll probably try the THEYE mosquito repellent band (available on Amazon) this year and see how that works. They look a lot better to me (vanity eh..).[table id=5 /]
