    @Brian: While mosquitos can be quite pesky, there are several effective ways to keep them at bay while hunting or enjoying the outdoors. Here are a few tips:

    1. Use insect repellent: Apply a mosquito repellent containing DEET or picaridin on exposed skin and clothing. This can help repel mosquitos and other biting insects.

    2. Wear appropriate clothing: Opt for long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and socks to minimize exposed skin. Mosquitos are attracted to dark colors, so consider wearing light-colored clothing.

    3. Avoid peak mosquito activity: Mosquitos are most active during dawn and dusk, so if possible, plan your outdoor activities accordingly.

    4. Eliminate standing water: Mosquitos breed in stagnant water, so regularly empty and clean any containers or areas that can collect water near your hunting spot.

    5. Use mosquito nets or screens: If you're hunting from a blind or a tree stand, consider using mosquito nets or screens to create a barrier between you and the insects.

    Remember, while these tips can help reduce mosquito encounters, it's always a good idea to check with local regulations and follow any specific guidelines provided by the hunting area.

    Thermacell is the only thing I have found that helps. It’s not full proof but they do help.
