What reviewers didn't like

But take heed to the shopper's warning and make sure to check the incense every now and then.
However, I found out that it’s a good idea to put the incense sticks upwind of the area you’re trying to protect from the bugs.
According to Joe Conlon, Technical Advisor at the American Mosquito Control Association, mosquito repellents are most effective when they provide an atmosphere on or around the skin. Products like candles and incense may be less effective because the atmosphere that they create may be disturbed by wind or rain.
