True , but we all make that effort to reduce odors as much as possible . Do you wear scented deodorant , wash your clothes in scented detergent , wash your hair with scented shampoo , and use scented soap ? I doubt it , thats my point . ;\)

I only have just over 20 years with Permanone and have almost never had a problem with mosquitoes while bowhunting and I would guess I hunt more than most anyone, no matter the weather.

I also have about 20 years experience with permethrin and I have never seen it affect mosquitoes. go figure


you are the only person I know of. All of my friends I have shown it to were amazed. Especially in a boat fishing when at certain times you can watch the mosquitoes stay out away from your head.

I tried thermacell, waste of money for me.

I can give you a list. we hunted yuchi a couple of years ago and I always use permethrin early season. the boy left his thermacell in the truck and had to go get it because he couldn't hunt for the skeeters. it was miserable without it. money well spent for me.

My wife and I were so impressed we bought 2 Thermacells after the trip to Statehouse . I think it was around 2005 ?
