We have those bands in the garden section of our local Walmart. They are just a springy-coil like band that you can put on your wrist that is supposed to keep the bugs away. Hope you can find them!
Where do you live in Alaska? We have some friends that live in North Pole.
Thanks so much, I will have to look when in Fairbanks next. I'm actually at Eielson AFB just 10 miles from the North Pole
