Effective Insect Compellent

July 17, 2009 jeansdream

I was talking to my girl friend today about outdoor activities during the heat of summer when bugs are all around, merrily sucking human’s blood out in the wild when you are merrily hiking or camping.

She asked if I know what is better than “Off” when it comes to insect compellents.  I had no idea.  She said “Bounce”.  I nodded.  Then she asked, “Did you understand me?  Bounce.”  I started to doubt myself…  Bounce – a name very familiar hence I nodded.  But she guessed me right – I didn’t really know what that was – my brain just told my head to nod coz I have heard this product a hundred times.

Bounce – the sheets that you use with your laundry when you put them in the dryer.  Yes – that “Bounce”.  YES!  She said – tuck a small part of the sheet in the pocket of the pants, but let the rest hang out, and insects won’t come near you!!

Did you know?  Have you tried??  Most importantly, did it work for you too???
