    Pearls stop bugs. Great stuff! I live in SK country park and use it on myself & bubs. We walk the dogs morning and evening on the trails. It also repels the sand flies (the little black biters).

    Thanks, I was curious too. I will def go look for this product. I've found the mosquitoes/bugs here in hong kong are very aggressive. They love to bite me and leave numerous itchy spots all over my legs and arms.

    Thank you! Is that the same as the 'tomato' one?

    I get it from Taste in Hang Hau. I've seen it a few times in Watson's in SK too.

    Best thing we've used is Kids' Herbal Armor put out by the All Terrain Co.

    (All Terrain Natural Products) I bought it in the U.S., as I used it there. Should be able to mail order it from somewhere if you can't find it at a camping shop here. DEET-free, and has worked a lot better than the stuff we've bought locally in Watson's etc.

    Good luck finding something that works well.

    i bought the tomato based "pearls" one.
    wasnt 100% effective on bugs but reduced my number of bites.
    also boy it smells
