    One wrote: ‘I bought these ahead of a camping trip as my son and I always get bitten. They are easy to wear (we wore them on our ankles) and we didn’t get bitten once whilst wearing them. They come in an array of colours and last for 10 days. They smell quite strong at first but you get used to it.’

    While another added: ‘These were recommended by a friend to me and as we were off on holiday thought I’d give them a try. They are fantastic and do exactly what they’re supposed to, I didn’t get bitten once until the night I forgot to put it in and ended up with three bites, so they most definitely work.

    ‘Great choice of colours,easy to wear for everyone in the family and they look great .Would recommend these and will buy again without a doubt.’
