Bought two of these in the Farnham store, to go in the cot of my 2 girls, 5 and 3. the batteries are expensive and only lasted a couple of nights and had to be replaced, the experiment costed me about Â£40, which I would not have minded but for the fact it did not work!!!!!! the girls were covered in bites. I fed this back to the store manager who thanked me for the feedback but offered nothing and didn't even take my number, in my opinion a poor product and very poor customer service.

bought this at the farnham store, i bought 2, one each for my girls, 3 and 5. wanted to put them by their cot/bed whilst on holiday in north Italy. they are Â£12 each and I thought money well spent if they work. the batteries are the rectangular ones and cost about Â£8 for two. the ladybugs did not work, they made no difference at all and both girls were covered in bites....the batteries only lasted for a night and a half but I did want to give it a proper try so I bought two more batteries. the experiment costed me about Â£40 which I would not have minded had it worked but it was an absolute waste of money. I went back to the store and brought it to the attention of the manager who thanked me for the feedback and didn't even ask me for my phone number! total waste of money and poor service.

It didn't work unfortunately, mosquitos circled around it. It is also heavy so can't really attach it to clothing.

Great product with fast delivery. We went to Egypt for 2 weeks and my son wasn't bitten once, I got bitten once but that was it.

Brilliant! I searched everywhere for something like this, to protect my son without adding to the sunscreen battle by applying more creams etc. This is a great idea and works well. No stings or tantrums!

This is a much more robust item than I thought it would be, it is also larger than I was expecting so I feel confident that is will work. Easy to connect to the pram but not used it yet to test it out.

We used this all week on holiday and my baby didn't get one bite it required 2x batteries for a weeks holiday so make sure you take a spare battery (and annoyingly a screwdriver to get it open!)
Overall great product!!

Disappointed with this product. It was fiddly to replace the batteries, went through batteries far too fast and was generally flimsy.

The worst buy ever! The lady bird clip has no grip. It becomes so heavy once the batteries are placed inside, that it does NOT stay on the buggy and keeps slipping off. The 9v batteries lasted barely for 2 nights when it was kept ON, which means, for a whopping 12£ product, I spend 1.5£ per night? It's ridiculous. When I tried returning this, the sales person questioned me that I left it ON the whole night and that was my fault! Di you expect me to keep track of mosquitoes all night and switch it OFF when they're gone? This is one of my worst buts. Please don't buy this.

No flies on my baby! Or other bugs, Mosquitos etc. Eats batteries (especially when you continually forget to turn it off) so always have spare and a little screwdriver to hand. Very quiet. Would recommend.

very good but needs 3 batteries for one week's Holiday - Also brought sun shade from local store - very good UVA 50 better than parsole.
Lauren on 08 January 2013
Great product. We used this on a double buggy on a recent trip to Thailand and both babies seemed to not get any bites when we were out and about. Only downside is remembering to turn it off when not in use.
Lisa on 17 September 2012
Very good, used on holiday and clipped it on to pushchair, my daughter was not bitten once.

Used this in italy in July (in conjuction with patches) and I think it might work because my 11 month old wasn't bitten, but me and her dad were! got through 3 batteries in 10 days, but I did keep forgetting to switch it off when it wasn't in use (you can't hear it unless you really try). a plug in option would be useful but other than that, I'm happy with the purchase.

I used this on a recent holiday to Majorca clipped it to the cot and the buggy and didnt see any insect bites on my 14 month old, so it appears to do the trick. You cant hear the buzzing noise unless you put your ear up against it so it wont disturb your little one.
Kim on 14 July 2012
Only downside is that it goes through a lot of batteries, a rechargeable option would be better.
Sharon on 10 July 2012
Worked really well, no bites at all (unfortunately we were not so lucky). Would definately recommend just take extra batteries with you (the only downside!).
holly on 08 July 2012
this is excellent we used this on holiday my son never got bitten attached it to his pram when out and about and to his cot at night. just take a good amount of batteries with you we went through 3 on a 10 night holiday

After reading up on this product I have now purchased one as i will be taking my son with me to work in the middle east an asia in oct and nov, I will be taking the item out with me on my next visit in aug to try it out before taking my son out.
Suzanne on 08 June 2012
Its too early to say whether this works or not but the battery only lasted us 2 nights so is not really feasible unless rechargeables are used.
Janice on 20 January 2012
I have used this before and the 9v battery we got lasted for our two week holiday and much beyond that. We didn't get one bite, and I am usually covered. We went to Greece last time, I am gettign some more for Thailand so we'll see how it does there!
