Just got a thermacell and tried it out this evening on the still air patio and was still approached and landed on by at least 6 Mosquitos.
Saw the propane fogger post with positive results. Anything else other than the DEET (which never fails) we use in the military? :laughing7: Which isn’t safe for children who may ingest it from skin to mouth contact. He loves to be outside and I want to encourage it as much as possible without having to suffer the consequences!


I don't know how well any of these work, but I've heard Avon's Skin So Soft, OR tying an unscented dryer sheet to your clothes somewhere helps drive skeeters off.

And around here, I'm known as 'bait.'

Sailor mentioned the dryer sheets and let me just add one comment to that: I have never done this but I have friends that jog/walk (Yuck) and some of them have told me that they use dryer sheets by wiping them around their neck, ears and other exposed parts of the body. :dont:

Beekeeper: Let's do saddle up and go learn that gentleman his manners
Davy Crockett: We won't have to. He's wearing out horses coming towards us
Beekeeper: Guess we can't stop him from coming. But I reckon we can arrange for him to limp going back

I have heard of the dryer sheet thing as well.. thought it was just a too good to be true type of thing. Guess I’ll be the guinea pig
