I’m a little disappointed that this product doesn’t last longer. I mean, we’re talking about keeping away bugs for good but it only lasts one or two months max before they come back again! Other than this shortcoming though, everything is great with my bug spray purchase so far – in spite of all those pesky bloodsuckers wanting nothing more than to make me their next meal (or victims!).
