Enter to win a Para’Kito mosquito repellent band

Para'Kito bandIt’s summer, which if you’re in the south means humidity and mosquitos have been getting to know you for the past couple of weeks, sometimes on an intimate basis. They’ve also probably been chowing down on your kids unless you’ve been spraying, lighting the skeeter be gone candles, and the like.

Para’Kito makes an essential oil mosquito repellent wristband that you wear and slap a slow diffusion refill into and for the next 15 days you shouldn’t have to worry much about the West Nile virus carrying flying pests. The diffuser doesn’t contact your skin, so other than being bathed in some of the scent, and according to the FAQ page is safe for little ones as long as you can keep them from eating it.

I’ll note we haven’t tried this product out yet, it’s in the mail and the company asked if we wanted to run a giveaway and I said sure. As usual in these situations you’ll enter here, we’ll review the product sometime after we get it, link back to remind you you can win, and then announce the winners.


For all you readers out there, here’s how to enter.

Comment below on who you’re going to use this on, and what items have or haven’t worked as skeeter scooters in the past. Feel free to post something interesting as to why you should be the winner.

Winners will be selected Monday July 6th, 2015.  Winners email info (as defined in your disqus profile, make sure it’s right) will be forwarded to my contact for Para’Kito. People who didn’t win, your info doesn’t go anywhere.

Winners have to be in the US (because they don’t want to pay international shipping,) and it’s got to be legal for you to enter into a contest where your email (or any information,) can be given to a third party without written consent of a guardian (sorry 15 year olds).

That’s about it. Enter below, please tell your friends and close strangers even though this reduces the chance that you may win it does mean your social circle should have fewer mosquito bites, and that makes people nicer.

The product in question is one refillable wristband with two pellets.
