    ENO w/ insect shield hammocks

    I'm starting to not like ENO... why?

    http://www.eaglesnestoutfittersinc.c...LE-INSECT.html

    They are charging $20 for peramethin treatment. Seriously? Something that will last a only few outings...something you can buy a lot of for $20 and do multiple treatments yourself. It seems like they are trying to rip off not so informed customers. Granted this is nothing new in the business world but it's something that pisses off this consumer. It bugs me so much I may get rid of my ENO loot.

    sigh.

    I absolutely love permetherin it is as good as bacon. I would buy a whole ton of permetherin that is highly concentrated and then you dilute it. You would be set for good time.
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.

    I'll do a permathrin treatment for you!

    I charge $40 dollars an hour,and this should only take me about 1/2 hour. Add the cost of the bug spray, factor in a reasonable profit margin and I figure I could do it for about$25.

    Shesh.. I made my own batch of Spray. hung up the ENO, Plus my newer DL Hammock. All my Camping gear & Clothing. Sprayed the heck out of them, even sprayed the Vehicles Cargo area & Carpet.. Cheap, easy and highly effective.

    Heck of a marketing tool.. with the fear of Lyme, and Skeeters. People will buy it up.

    It was easy, and cheap.. On this side of the West coast.. Nobody really knows of this application Gem. They only know of Deet..

    My friend bought his ENO online and thought this insect shield was the bug net. He kept it because he didnt want the hassle of returning it through the mail.

    Go to feed store. Get a bottle of high-yield 38% permethrin. You have to dilute it yourself.
    Never sprayed fabrics with it, but I spray it around the house every year and it stopped the pesky ant problem I was dealing with.
