Here in Eastern NC, between the coast and swamps, ya need to look out for the skitters, you could probably shoot'em with a shotgun, and we are wrapped up in pine tree's (tickhaven).

The best tick prevention that we have seen is the pemethrin, (if you go to walmart it is in the camping section), spray your clothes, shoes and socks (not your body) and let it dry you'll be good for several weeks. ... r/19887389

Thermocell is the bomb for skitters and black flys. They will keep them away, they have reproduced the smell of a chrysanthemum flower, "The repellent is allethrin, a copy of a repellent that naturally occurs in chrysanthemum flowers. It repels mosquitoes, black flies, and no-see-ums, and will not harm humans or pets". They are worth the money from Walmart ... nstraint=0

If you were to buy a couple of boxes of Winchester Turkey load shells you could send off and get one free. It just probably want be in, in time for this turkey season.

Great Huntin'

We have those mosquitoes with tiger-striped legs along the NC coast that are just plain mean. They can almost stand flat-footed a hump a turkey. I wish I were kidding. All the barely moving black water creeks to the sounds, in the ditches beside the road where they borrowed soil to build the road, and the swamps are ideal 'skeeter breeding grounds. I can remember duck hunting at Bodie Island along the outer banks and seeing swarms of mosquitoes I mistook for flocks of ducks. You learn to set the thermo cell upwind of you when the breeze gets up so you're protected. I love mine. They even make an earth scent repellent pad for 'em now too.

Ditto what "Cut" said. Powdered sulphur for ticks and chiggers. Works good around ankle openings, waist, wrist and neckbands and dust your "drawers", being careful not to swing the sock too hard in the crotch area :lol: . Put it in an old sock and dust liberally. Keep away from eyes.
