So.... at the advice of a few forum members I tried something new.

There was a thread a few weeks back talking about keeping MOST of the "bugs" out of your blind with many ideas and most of them I had already tried. I have never checked my blind and found it bug free there's always something in there.

I try to make it to my hunting area every two weeks and spray the ground around my blind with some type of over and out. I also set off a bug bomb once a month.

The last two trips up there I have sprayed the legs of my blind and I mean soaked them down and nothing else..... It could just be a dumb luck but this weekend I did not have one bug of any kind on or in my blind. I also sprayed a generous amount all the way around the door but not the windows.

Take that for what it's worth but, it worked for me....

Please feel free to correct my grammar, it's been brought to my attention that I need some assistance.

The main pest everybody wants out of their blind are wasps/yellow jackets. But also beware of black windows and other spiders. Get yourself a pest strip from Walmart. Put it in now and you can take it out of your blind on opening morning. You will be "bug" free.

I don't do anything to keep bugs out bc they can't get in. There are no gaps anywhere and I have not seen a single bug in it yet.

Hot shot pest strips have done great for us. Kills everything that flies or crawls.

I spray mine down with Demon after I do the camp house. Spray up the legs of the stand and all corners top and bottom inside and out . You won't have a bug problem.

seal it up if you can. weather strip. door and windows that close tight. i had 2 4x8 wood blinds about 6' up. every september. break out the bug bombs. get the gen and the shop vac. pull chairs and carpet. completely clean 9 months of bug and mouse poo out of the blind. then still battle wasps that move in to get out of the cold. nothing like sitting in a cold blind with the Thermocell going and start hearing things hit the carpet. yellow jackets are hard to see on OSB. last season i purchased 2 used 6 shooter Maverick blinds. put real nice bulb gasket on the door and windows. to my pleasure this weekend my 2 blinds were void of wasps and bugs.
