    Bugs are annoying

    I love hiking been buying 25% deet off dry and that just helps a little. any thing else that might help I rather eat steak at home then bugs in my mouth while hiking.

    Scotty...
    Headnet? Darker shade reflects less sunlight. I glued 2 strips of polystyrene to form "X"..measured for head length and width to lay the netting on, with ~.5" overhang everywhere on top, to keep it off your head othw bugs just sit on top and bite. fwiw.. *EDIT: HA!...watch in 50yrs the great $$$ in science will find the polystyrene cancerous and DEET not really a player...LOL. Have found Cutter's Dry stuff good so far...but haven't tested with the deer and moose flies...

    To a bug-free Fourth

    Wonder how healthy liquid Citronella oil is, it's good when burned off via candle for area distribution.
    Skin so Soft has been pretty good....$.01

    Good thread title.

    I've got an extremely low tolerance for mosquitos. I've tried alot of stuff but I always get chewed up worse than the folks I'm with. My girlfriend always says it's in my mind but a slew of obvious bites on my skin the next morning always proves otherwise.

    You're not alone Edd... I got used to blackflies a long time ago, but even just taking a walk @local City Forest paths/trails...the headnet keeps me sane.

    SCOTTY, do the % in DEET!, not alcohol dude....
