insect repellants

Has anyone used Bug Bam Insect Repellent Bracelets or similar? I hate the feel of spray-on repellants, but also hate bugs--and mosquitoes seem to love me. We're going to be staying in the rain forest at Samasati so I'm afraid I'll be having lots of close encounters. And yes I saw the picture someone posted of a large black scorpion in their bathroom at Samasati. I'm trying hard not to get freaked out!

Colinsito, you are lucky! In my 7 years living here, I see scorpions at least every couple of months, but only stung once, thank goodness, as it was much, much worse than a wasp sting.

Adelina, take the good advice to check shoes, clothes, beds and keep your suitcase zipped. I'm sorry if this sounds extreme as there is an excellent chance you will never even see one, but better safe than sorry!

Love the Off Dry spray. It is so dry you wonder if you are getting any protection, but it works!
