D-limonene and linalool are insecticides derived from citrus peel, so supposedly shaving an orange peel is to help repel insects... this may fall under the same logic as since they use corn granules as a base for ant baits like Amdro that grits must be what kills ants.

Like a fake tan? I've never heard that. I doubt it.

If you are referring to the fact that bugs are repelled by snookie? its not just her. most living things are frightened by her kind.
