    Man the bees are already out in force. Yesterday most places I went had them swarming around. Reminded me of something another LCO told me. Said he buys like plastic bracelets that have some kind of repellent in them to ward off bees. Wears one on his ankle one on his wrist.I thought he was nuts because I dont know of ANY bug repellent that wards off bees. Ever heard of this contraption? If so where can I buy them....I WANT A CASE OF THEM IF THEY WORK...I'm allergic to bee stings...dont go into shock but I swell up for days. Thanks

    Never heard of such. I just carry an epi pen with me. It helps.

    I may be wrong but I thought WE Chapps had something of that nature.

    I have not heard of this but if such a items exists I would want one. I just carry an epi pen with me to avoid a very unfortunate situation that would ruin my whole day¬Ö..death.

    Yes,
    Just ask your Doc about it. He can even call in a presc. for you. without going to see him.
