mosquito repellent

Recommended Posts

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.

What about adding the B1 vitamin to your diet? There is big thread on this on the walleye central site!

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

I have been using the 3M stuff in the lotion form for a few years now, great stuff. It stays on well and you need to apply it less then sprays.

For skeeters and them $$%% no seeums and gnats it is the best stuff I have used so far.

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.

    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.  
    • The problem with fishing walleye below 35' is that whatever you catch you best be planning to keep. Bringing them out of that depth will kill them for sure no matter how slowly it is done.

    • I had this exact model for many years and it even ran for several years after my wife ran straight gas in it and seized it up one day when I wasn't home. After it cooled down and I replaced the gas in the tank with mixed fuel, it started right up but always had a knock after that.
    • I came through Pennsylvania to get here at least and there isn’t a Maryland forum so here goes:   I have a couple extra days later this week and a car to go wherever.  I’ve been looking for a guide or charter to get on the water but am having more trouble than expected.  The Chesapeake Bay charters for stripers run up to 6 in a group but don’t mix groups so jumping on an unfilled boat doesn’t seem to be an option. I’ve been working with one captain willing to try but no dice yet.  I could have the whole boat to myself for $600 I suppose...   So anyway, is there anyone who has a suggestion, contact, or even a boat in the Maryland area for ANY kind of fishing?  Honestly I’m pretty open but would prefer something coastal.  Have car, will travel.   I talked to a guy with a sweet jet boat at The Point of Rocks on the Potomac yesterday but he doesn’t guide.  But that could be an option too.  Might head to Niagara Falls after I’m done in Baltimore so NY state so there’s another one.   Yep, this is an official Wanderabout.
    • Tonight I caught crappie, bass, big bluegills, rock bass, pike and a snapping turtle.... All after 11pm!  Try it sometime, tiny black jigs for big nocturnal bluegills. Loud Black topwaters for Pike n bass. Bring extra flashlight batteries and bug spray, lots of bug spray!!!
