I have seen several in adds over the years, but finally wanted to get one. In you guys' opinion, what is the best one on the market to buy? Which have you had the most success with? Always been a little skeptical..

Not sure anybody has said this but I would go with Thermacell. There's things that you have to make a decision on but Thermacell is not one, get it, light it and worry about something else.

I got a thermacell last year, morning hunt went by without a problem... Forgot it on the evening hunt and thought maybe the skeeters weren't so bad, I was wrong... Won't forget it again

I've been skeptical as well. May have to give it a try after reading the feedback.

You might try the spray's with permetherin in them. You put it on your clothes and you can spray the inside of the blind with it. It has minimal to no smell and the nice thing about it is that is kills the skeeter's chiggers and tick's when they crawl across. It supposed to last several washings but I always reapply. It's not really a repellant it's more of a death sentence for them, you spray the inside of the blind and when they land on that they die there too. Repel makes it and there is another company whose name escapes me you just have to look at the ingredients.
