Another deterrent- my favorite is the "Alaska bug off parka." Which is nothing more than an old blazer or
light weight jacket that you put in a large trash bag. Add 1 can of Off, Ben's, Cutter's or any other chemical
Deet repellant. Shake the can up and poke a small hole in it. Drop it in the bag and seal it. Bleed off the
pressurized air in the bag but then re-seal. Now the contents of the can will permeate the parka in the bag.
Keep the parka in this bag until you need it. Then take it out and put it on for that 1/2 hour or couple of hours
you need it. Then return it to the bag where it's potency will remain high. You can recharge it periodically.
Note: this is a potent, powerful deterrent against biting bugs, to be used in extreme measures. The beauty of
it is you can remove the offensive bug repellant as soon as you no longer need it. You do not have to put it
directly on your skin. And Keep It Away From Children. Netting can work well but ... A head net over a
FULL brimmed hat is best. If you find yourself in bad company with no way to avoid the mosquitos get hold
of some mud and coat your skin with it. This will dis-orient them. They will come in close but then just not
quite be able to find you. Keep moving and seek open areas with little wind protection. There are natural
herbs and remedies to deter mosquitos also. Hope some of this helps. James Ninilchik, U.S.A.

Mosquitos In Alaska
I have several friends who have tried the electronic
skeeter repellers. They work, although, we always
recommend they should be used in conjunction
with other mosquito repellents to be most effective.
To repell the little biting pests here in Alaska we
have found that it is best to wear light colored
clothing. Dark clothing attracts. Avoid morning
and evening travel through skeeter country. The
insect hunt their quarry predominately in temps
that are just right, when mammals (the quarry)
are warmer than their surroundings (so their heat
sensors work well) as in the cool of the eve or
morning. But once it is too cool they are inactive.
And during the heat of the day they are inactive.
They sense their prey by sight, movement, smell
and heat sensors. Wind in the slightest amount is
a BIG problem for skeeters. Therefore, areas that
are open along rivers or large lake shores or oceans
get "a steady breeze" that knock out mosquitos.

Here in Alaska it is a common saying to stay above
timberline or along lakeshores, large rivers or the
coast of Alaska during summer (mosquito time), and
visit the Interiors during the late Fall and early Spring
and winter months when the biting bugs are gone.
All these areas have mosquitos BUT the prevailing
winds keep them somewhat at bay. Humidity will
increase their activity and ability to find you. After
or even during a light rain skeeters will be out and
hunting. Their sense of smell works better in humid
conditions, just as ours does. Avoid travel through
mosquito areas when it's raining or still wet from a
storm. Citronella coils that are lit are a great deterrent
for mosquitos. You light them and bugs are gone.
