Now, I am not the type of person to sit here and pass judgement on someone.... HOWEVER, what exactly prompts a person to go out and actually buy something called Monkey Butt Anti-Itch powder? eep.

Tell your son if he ever wants to get back at his father to buy him some Bowel Buddy Bran Wafers.

There are lots of different "Monkey" products out there. DIL just discovered "Monkey Balm" for use on my grandaughter's severe exema; it works miracles!

The main ingredient appears to be sea buckthorn oil. GD is only 2, and when her face starts to burn or itch, she will go ask her mom for her Monkey Balm, and put it on, herself!

Let me know how the talc works K. Mom and Dad in Winnipeg had beetles last year so I'm hoping it works for them.

I have lily beetles. I ripped up all my lilies for a year. Then last year I replanted some pretty ones. If my lilies overwintered, I'll tell you if they got them.
