I have read the discussions of deet vs whatever. Interesting. On several of the posts it seems to be advisable to bring deet with you when you travel. Is it not easily available or much more expensive in Bonaire? Also, is the same true for sunscreen? Counting my ounces when I pack

I found the electric tennis racket's sold on Bonaire to be very effective at ridding our bedroom of mosquitoes before retiring. Effective and kind of fun to use. ZAP!

If your watch is not metal, watch out as well. It can take off the paint on some of the less expensive Casio type watches.

We've used Cactus Juice in place of DEET and found it effective.

MMM...cactus juice. Makes you smell like a creamsicle. That is not so bad! And it works!

It only takes a little research to find the dangers of DEET. It is a bioaccumulative as well.
