In the afternoon I finally screwed up the courage to take Beans for a walk and give this new mosquito repellent I bought a test. I don't particularly care for the smell or feel of products with DEET in them and saw some good reviews for Sawyer's Picaridin online so I picked up a can. With hat, long pants and a long sleeve white shirt on we stepped outside. The swarm came instantly. It took me a minute to overcome my natural repulsion of them flying around my face but when I realized they were not landing on my skin I relaxed some. This stuff really works! It is so nice to buy a product these days that actually does what it's makers claim it will do. Poor Beans though, they were flying all around her head and she kept twitching her ears but I don't think any got through her thick coat. So I am very happy with this Picaridin stuff and will now be able to enjoy the outdoors a little more than before. Oh, and no smell or icky feel to it either.
