Certainly works but don't expect miracles!
I got this product just to check whether it will be really effective since the cost wasn't that high. Got the pack delivered within the estimated delivery date. The pack contained 12 strips of 2 stickers each. The stickers have "Choota Bheem" face. Don't know if all are getting Choota Bheem or there are other combinations :-)

GLUE ON DRESS

The expectation is that we stick this on our dress and mosquitoes will stay away. There are many users who are complaining about the glue/residue left on the dress after leaving the sticker on the dress overnight! "This varies based on the dress material". I saw that there was no residue on my daughter's jerkin whereas the towel has some residue. It's best for you to cut a small piece and check in your dress material before using the same in case you are very concerned about the residue.

PLACEMENT OF THE STICKERS

Fair enough, I certainly found that the mosquitoes were quick to react to our trusted Odomos smell and moved away. The smell was not too much if you stick it in your pant. If you keep it near your collar, then some may get uncomfortable. I felt that the best place to stick it is by the side of the bed or on the nearby wardrobe doors. Thats where the mosquitoes actually sit/wait :-) This also avoids the huge smell that we experience initially and also makes the mosquitoes move further away..

EFFECTIVENESS

I was not overly impressed with the effectiveness of the stickers. Though it was successful in making the mosquitoes react and move away, the effectiveness wears away fast and in probably 5 hours or so, the smell has reduced significantly. This effect is compounded if you have the fan running at good speed. Eitherways, if you are going to an outdoor area with an insane amount of mosquitoes, then sticking a couple of these in the shirt and pant will certainly reduce keep the blood-suckers at bay.

ADVANTAGES:

* Supposedly no harmful chemicals
* Trusted brand ODOMOS
* Extremely small and portable. Can have 50 stickers in the pocket that can last for a whole long outdoor trip.
* Is really effective atleast for a short time
* Some really like the gentle odomos smell
* No need for electricity or cables or fire etc as compared to other mosquito control solutions.

DISADVANTAGES:

* Not viable to use this on a daily basis considering the cost
* Choota Bheem may not be the best face I want to stick in my shirt/pant when outdoors. This point would be an advantage when you are using it for your kids :-)
* Effect wears away faster if wind action is more
* Glue residue left in some fabrics

CONCLUSION:

I probably would'nt call this as the best mosquitoe handling device (compared to the mosquitoe trappers or zappers) but it does have the advantage of being really small and does manage to keep mosquitoes at bay (even if its was only for a limited time.)

I will have one packet of this in my house and car for usage during an emergency when you have no other way of handling mosquitoes, especially during powercuts.

Sorry to write this BUT this patch does not stick at all on almost all fabrics we tested.

The patch does not stick on cottons and denims for sure. And guess what one wears in the mosquito season, i.e. in the summer if not cottons!! The only reason the product is getting 2 stars is because the smell of ODOMOS is comforting. Why? ... because, as a brand, we trust it.

Effective for 30 mins and keeps mosquitoes away for that long. If you are looking for protection any monger than that , please keep enough number of units of this product handy. Good design and sticking capability.

Too sticky for my liking....I have used other mosquito repellent patches but this one has the gum that leaves marks. The gum is so sticky that even after removing the patch and washing the garment, the glue stays.

Citronella fragrance is effective but sticking capacity deserves 1 star!!
Didn't expect from Reputed company like Dabur
