Maybe I'm crazy, or maybe I'm just drinking the koolaid, but I've had a few people swear to me that I can get by without bug protection by hanging replant on my ridgeline. Has anyone experimented with this idea? I've considered permertheren (sp?) on the bottom of my hammock, possibly soaking a bandana in it and hanging it from the ridgeline. Does anyone have any other ideas? Also, does permertheren (sp?) actually repel bugs, or does it just kill them once they encounter it? PS, I live in Kentucky with lots of creepy crawlies in the spring and summer.
