Anyone ever tried insect-repellant wrist bands? Are they good or just another scam?

In brief: Not effective
While the manufactures would like you to think these wrist bands are terrific, I do not find that they work well.
Deet containing lotion or spray repellents are the most effective. The higher the deet content, the better the results.
