Insect repellents

Post by Matt Flynn »

I have tried just about every rub-on, spray-on repellent etc over the years but have never tried these electronic devices .... https://ebay.us/6R6uwr

Anyone tried them? Do they work?

Put one on and fish a barrage at night in your jocks and find out! 🤣

Where I live we have had three mosquitoes in 10 years, so not much opportunity. Plenty of wasps in summer and massive stinging ants tho.

haven't tried that electronic one
Anything that bites or stings will get me
Over many years ive found the ONLY thing that works is cover up as much as possible and don’t go out dusk/dawn
When you do go out, use deet based repellant, I find aerogard 20% works best for me
Then when the pesky little one gets past the defences, I use ‘The Locals” spray as quickly as possible and don’t scratch
As far as those Jack Jumpers,, ive never had the pleasure of being stung. I reckon it would be lights out for me if that happened. Ive had a couple on my legs but never stung

bit late to the party but I reckon you cant go past thermacells, you get them at bunnings they run on a little gas canister
camped in the little Finniss one night on the boat kept them all away, along with many other times I've used it
