What mosquito repellent do you use while in stand? We hunt north of Beaumont and have a lot of huge mosquitos. Growing up near Charleston SC we would wipe bounce fabric softner pads on our skin but those squiters would sting when they bit.

Thermacell works great for mosquitoes. Not worth a dang for gnats.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

I'm going to be the one PITA and say my Thermacell didn't work as well down here on the coast. Maybe if you are in an enclosed blind but it didn't work for me out in the open with our black salt marsh mosquitos. I use as strong DEET repellant I can find, mesh over my head, and permethrin on my clothes.

In the wind all bets are off on the Thermacell for sure.

The deer won't even notice your thermacell. I agree that it won't be great in a strong wind though. But 90% of the time you will be set with the thermacell. Get one. You won't regret it.

If there's a wind strong enough to where the T-Cell won't work, you probably aren't having an issue with skeeters at that time either.

That's been my experience as well. Wind = no skeeters. But on a breeze, just place thermacell where the breeze will carry it to you. I carry one with me every time I hunt deer or hogs and kill them all the time with it running. And I bow hunt.

Same with sprays... But skeeters are generally less of a problem in wind... wink

I don't like spray on or wipe on stuff on my skin. I spray OFF on my boots to defeat the chiggers & ticks. I wear loose baggy clothing for skeeters & a head net if necessary. Works great for me. Typically, if I am sweating the skeeters won't bother me. ThermaCell uses allethrin. While that is an organic compound I prefer not to be breathing it on a regular basis which you will do if you are using it.

Allethrin is toxic. Inhaling any chemical is not wise.

I use Repel Sportsman Max. It is 40% deet. No chiggers, gnats or mosquitoes.


God bless John Wayne!
