Incognito Insect Repellent

I bought this at the Destinations travel show at the weekend. I suffer badly when there are mosquitos about. The number of hours sleep lost hunting for them in hotel and apartments all across Europe are almost incalculable. One mozzie is all it takes. Claire is often in the same room and not a nibble, but I am simply fast food to the damned useless creatures.

Even the satisfaction of killing it doesn't make up for the days of irritation from the bite and the huge red bites on exposed skin.

It is reputed to be the best non-deet on the market. This is all natural and safe for all the family.

Some years ago in Finland the product called Johnson's "Off!" was available and it was very effective.

Walking around the lakes with it on was like having a force field with the damned mozzies leaving me alone.

The Johnson's product is not available in the UK, but an alternative called Autan is, and it is good but not 100% perfect.

Here's hoping that Incognito will fit the bill.

They still sell Off here by the gallon. The USA doesn't care what is in it and if it will harm the user. I still use it on occasion if we are motorcycle camping and such.

Having said that, I am in the same boat as you. Brad won't get a bite, and I'll be a feast for the little buggers and bites swell huge on me.

Hope the Incognito works for you.

I've heard hanging a dryer sheet off your belt works but I've never tried it. Something about the flowery smell they don't like apparently.

When I lived with a smoker I never really noticed it, but as a rabid non-smoker I don't get the protection of the cancer cloud.

Might have to see if I can get Off! by post!
