Buzz off, bugs.

Hempstead, Texas-based Don't Bug Me! Patch is offering an insect repellent patch that uses vitamin B1 and aloe to fight bugs instead of a high dose of chemicals. One patch protects against bites from pesky, disease-carrying mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, chiggers, sand fleas and no-seeums for up to 36 hours.


The thiamine-based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through the Don't Bug Me! Patch. Excess B1 is then excreted through the body's pores, creating an odor that is almost undetectable to humans but offensive to mosquitoes. Aloe, the other active ingredient, accelerates the absorption of the B1 and serves as an anti-inflammatory agent if a bug does bite.

The Don't Bug Me! Patch comes in a five-pack for a suggested retail price of $4.99 and a 10-pack for a suggested retail price of $7.99.
