Flash Post: Bugger Off


What It Is: I was visiting family in Manitoba the other week and my goodness, the mosquitoes! Having lived on the coast for a stretch, it was crazy to be back amongst the biters – I’ve still got some little red raised bumps on my legs. Anyway, this nifty bracelet might just be my saviour. Its all-natural formulation promises waterproof protection from those pesky blood fiends for up to 180 hours. The adjustable size means just about anyone can snap one onto their wrist or ankle for full-body protection, and it’s totally reusable as long as you seal it up between wears. Sign me up!

Who It’s For: Hand them out as party favours at your backyard BBQ bash. Bring them as a houseguest gift when you’re visiting a friend’s cabin over July long. Pack them in your kid’s backpacks for summer camp and stash a few extras to help them make fast friends in the wilderness.

What It Costs: $3.99 a pop

Where It’s At: In Canada, you can order them (or buy in person presumably) from Tweed & Hickory in one of four shades.

    If I lived in an area that was bothered by mosquitoes, I’d definitely give it a try.
