mosquito repellent

Hey Queen
I did not see that, nor have I seen it in the stores. One trick I use with the high ower deet repellants is to spray it on the brim and all over a hat, and spray it on an old button up long sleeve shirt. It works pretty good and I don't get the headaches. If you want to chat I am in there now.

I have not heard of that, but a cheap way to do it is to place used dryer fabric softner sheets in your hat. I knew a guy that let them hang down the back of his cap and put them in his shirt pockets and the little nasties stayed away! So if you don't mind looking a little goofy - try it. But I would like to know about the 3M product.

Anyone tried the new 3M mosquito repellent highlighted on channel 11 last night? Supposed to have less deet, but last longer than other repellents. Have you seen it for sale anywhere?

I didn't see the piece on the new 3M product, but I've never found a substitute for Deepwoods Off. It's got just enough DEET to do the job, but not enough to melt my plastic watch band. It also does well on ticks and chiggers.

I do use 90% DEET at certain times, but I hate that feeling of soaking in a vat of chemicals. The dryer sheets sound like way too much of a pain in the you know what to attempt....unless you're just sitting on the patio.

B1 may work a little on mosquitoes, but it doesn't work for ticks and chiggers.

So Eddy, where do you get it? I saw the news report on it and 3M showed they did their homework. Appearently the armed forces have been using this stuff years and now its finally available for the consumers.

They say its available in sporting goods stores but I have yet to see it.

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
