As I mentioned in the last blog, skeeter season is here there are alot of deterrents to keep those blood sucking creedants.
Most people use sprays and lotions, but over the past couple of years there has been different ways to rid the swamp birds so they would ruin your outdoor fun.
Now lets look at some weapons to battle those red bump brigade.
Pros-Easy to apply, cheap, available everywhere
Cons-Smelly; spooks deer, have to reapply often when it is hot out.
Pros: Works great, no smell, easy to transport, quiet after starting
Cons: A little loud to start when hunting, wind can cause lower effectiveness,expensive.
(Side note The makers of Off makes a take off one of these, they work well but the fan is loud. Great for turkey hunting)
Bug Suits, Masks, Gloves
Pros- No smell, can also help blend in to your surroundings
Cons- bugs still attack you, hard to concentrate when bugs are all around you.
There are some other things like wrist bands and patches but my experience with them as they only work on the arm if at all.
Pros–organic, no Deet or harmful chemicals, works in a large area.
Cons- open flame, smelly, NOT recommended in the woods or on a boat.
So there ya have it, some tools to help you not get bit and enjoy the outdoors without smackin’ you and other people!
