Works on no seeeeum s in florida - and everglades skeeters .....Dave from South Florida Posted on Facebook 3/9/21

Which is the best mosquito repellent against Zika? These studies are flawed if they do not include Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope!

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!

Even more interesting, science has since proven that certain fragrances will interfere with a biting insect's ability to detect the tell-tale carbon dioxide flume that we emit when we exhale!  No other repellent that I know of makes that claim.

  Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope is not sold in stores but is readily available on our website:  And I would gladly donate a bottle for testing.  However, there must be a reason why we are ignored?

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