Here’s a new way to get mosquitoes to buzz off. This may be worth a try the next time bugs threaten to ruin your campfire or hike in the woods. The Don’t Bite Me! patch is a natural insect repellent containing vitamin B1 and aloe.

You apply the patch to a dry, hairless area of your body about two hours before exposure to mosquitoes. The excess B1 produced by the patch is secreted through the body’s pores, creating a scent (almost undetectable to humans) that repels the mosquitoes.

The patch contains no DEET and is safe for children. To find out more about Don’t Bite Me!, go to
