Al and Pete's wants to share their hunting and fishing experience with you.
The mosquitoes are starting to show up in south Michigan seeming later than normal. When Pete got up to Baldwin three weeks ago the black flies and no-see-ums were coming out strong. Pete tried Repel's "Gear Smart," a relatively new insect repellent containing "Picardin." The order is almost like fermented fruit, it does not have to be used heavily and did an excellent job of keeping the black flies and no-see-ums at bay. Pete has high hopes for equally good results on mosquitoes. Another great mosquito repelling device is the Therma-Cell, a heat dispersed vapor that does an excellent job keeping away black flies, mosquitoes, and no-see-ums. It is all contained in a plastic appliance approximately 2"x 3"x 8" and sells for about $25.00. Talk to anyone that's used one and they love the way they work!
