I've been using the patches for five days now. Three months ago, I got a flea infestation in my apartment. No pets and I became their feast. Biting insects have always been attracted to me since I was a child and nothing has ever worked. I went to several websites and have followed their advice to the letter. That said, I have been consuming garlic and using vinegar water on my bedding and on myself. I usually get a few hours sleep before the fleas attack again and I spray vinegar water and consume more garlic. I am covered in flea bites from head to toe - literally - even on my face! Being desperate, I bought these patches. These do work! If you are sensitive to biting insects as I, please note: Day 1 - It took over 4 hours for the patch to indicate it was beginning to work. I thought these may not work for me, but I kept it on. That night was the first time I slept almost through the whole night in three months! I did get two more bites. Patch seemed to last less than 24 hours. Day 2 - I added a second patch that morning. I also noticed an odor as others have commented on in these reviews. Not a single bite. Not even when I vacuumed (every day I do this). Day 5 - One patch now lasts 35 hours! I have slept through the night every night! If I didn't know better, I would believe I didn't have fleas. When the patch wears off, the fleas come back, so I know they still exist. I have also been able to turn my thermostat to a comfortable setting. Buy these and stick with them even if they don't seem to work right away. They will! No more garlic and vinegar! The body scent isn't that pleasant, but for a full night's sleep and no more bites, I will put up with it until I get rid of the fleas. I just received Diatomeceous Earth a few days ago. I dusted my apartment with it. Here's hoping it solves the flea problem!
