These are awesome ! i bought them because I seem to be a magnet for the
stupid blood suckers this year, and I mushroom hunt after it rains,
which means I usually have a million after me at once. these work to
keep them away and don't get bit nearly as much wearing them. The dog
wear ones around her neck now when we go out and they seem to last for
awhile as long as you take care of them. They do smell but its not an
overly stinky smell. great bracelets.
