"Research by scientists at the University of California Riverside, US, could pave the way for novel insect repellents to tackle the spread of deadly tropical diseases. Insects such as mosquitoes detect carbon dioxide in exhaled breath to track down their prey and Anandasankar Ray and his group have shown it’s possible to use odorant molecules to disrupt the insects’ carbon dioxide sensing machinery."

Ole Time Woodsman has been around for over 130 years protecting outdoors people from biting insects. Science has finally caught up to what Obie Sherer instinctively knew back in 1910.  If a Native American could sit peaceably by a trout steam and not be attacked by a horde of blood thirsty insects, then there must be a smell that deterred the mosquitoes and black flies from biting.....or even swarming.

Using a camouflage  formula used by deer hunters back in 1882, Obie perfected a recipe for Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope.  Little did he know that today scientists would support the fact that certain odors would interact with a biting insect's ability to detect a human or animals flume of carbon dioxide!

Just took this camping this weekend, put some on a bandana just like when I was a kid. Not a bite! Thank you!

  • Just used your product for the first time. Went out to mow the back lawn with a bandana around my neck that had been sprayed with OTWM together with a hat that i sprayed the brim with OTWM. I finished without one bite from those dang gnats that usually swarm my head and bite me to death. Thanks for a great product!! Really! THANK YOU!

  • Did the product go off market for a time? I looked for it a couple of times over the past few years and couldn’t find it. If it’s the real product, i still remember walking into an Adirondack swamp and coming out alive, just smelling like pitch.

  • Used young boy on the Black river in Watson NY. Got it at a small store in Lowville NY. Kept all creatures away including People. Lol.
