squidink: (Default)


went hiking yesterday in Rocky Hill. Lets just say the 'squitos are out in full force.

I used some bug spray that was in the car and to my horror it was 98% DEET. Is that even legal???

Was it *effective?* (One would hope so, if the concentration is that high!)

I guess that begs another question: How do you feel today, 'skeeter bites notwithstanding?
No bad aftereffects from the DEET? That stuff does scare me, I will admit it!

I'm still waiting for the neurological damage to kick in :(

but I think I'm okay... I think it's only really serious if it gets into the bloodstream. Needless to say the 'squitos avoided me.

I'm not even sure how to dispose of this stuff (turns out, my husband bought it when we were in Hawaii). I DON'T want to just throw it in the garbage... I guess I'll wait for the 'hazardous waste' pick up day.
