A couple of years ago I used it and while on a hike, as it was getting hot . . .
. . . I removed my hat, almost instantaneously I was swarmed with mosquito's, no se-ums, (couldn't really see-um)
I put my hat back on and no more trouble . . . that was cool.
even as far away as my neck/under my chin.
"Just prepare what you can and enjoy the rest."
I treat all my hammocks and hiking clothes with permethrin. Does help and where I live we have the salt water skeeters that are very agressive. When they bite you know it. I try to avoid DEET as much as possible but sometimes I have to use it and the flies, skeeters, ticks, gnats and chiggers are more than happy to let me know what spots I missed

Ok so I resprayed my bug net last night... different than how I did it before. Last time I sprayed it while it was hung up (but without the hammock in it). This time I laid it out on some plastic and sprayed the tar out of it. I bet this makes a big difference in the performance. We'll see...
In NJ and maybe elsewhere, larger Rite-Aid drug stores seem to have been long on insect repellents. Picaridin I got from one in a 3.5oz pump bottle has the brand name "Natrapel".
Packaged by the Tender Corporation, in a package that looks like a long stick under-arm anti-perspirant. Like other picaridin I have used it also has a light scent of a "powder fragrance".
