Off's Clip-On Bug Repellent Would Be A Great Idea If It Worked

If you’re planning some picnics or camping this holiday weekend and don’t want mosquitoes to nom you alive, some bug repellent is a great idea. How about the new Off brand clip-on repellent fans that you keep seeing commercials for? While going without bug spray is an appealing prospect, the clip-ons don’t work very well. Some of our colleagues at Consumer Reports locked themselves in bug-filled cages to test bug sprays, including the clip-ons, and bring us this disappointing news.

For the ratings of insect repellents that did work, as well as more video of mosquitoes attacking human testers, fly on over to Consumer Reports.
