there are only two types of hunters in Fl - those who bring their Thermocel and those who wish they had brought their Thermocel.
^^^This^^^...for the skeeters (don't know if Thermocell works for ticks or not as I always sprays clothing with tick repellant as well.
Don't live in Fla. but have spent enough time in the last 30 yrs. down there fishing. Back in the glades and reeds, towards evening, have literally seen clouds of skeeters come up out of the foliage. Thermal cell works.
