How to stop black flies from biting? How Stuff works. If this study did not incude Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope then it is totally inaccurate!
Science has proven that certain fragrances interfere with an insect's receptors to recognize the carbon dioxide flume that we exhale when we breathe! Something that we knew over 100 years ago! If they cannot find you, they cannot bite you!
The first batch of Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope was sold to the foreman of a Maine logging camp in 1910. Since then, it has been a staple in tackle boxes, logging camps, hiking packs, hunter's possible bags, and back yard gardeners pockets. Yet, even after 120 years of protecting outdoor enthusiasts from mosquitoes, black flies, no see ums, chiggers, minges, deer flies, and ticks that no study that I have found ever mentions Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope!
And I am not sure why? We do not sell Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope in stores, yet our product is readily available all over the Internet. Plus, I am happy to donate a bottle to any reputable company for testing. Yet, people who are the so-called experts continue to ignore this product? Go figure!
