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

What do you use for Deer Flies? If any information does not include Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope then do not believe it!

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!

Ok, we just returned from our bike trip through the woods of north central Wisconsin. When I told my riding partners about the Old Time Woodsman Fly Dope that I ordered, they mocked me. Well, ten miles of riding and swarms of biting deer flies changed their mind. As we emerged from a section of trail, we pulled over and busted out the fly dope. The next 30 miles of riding still had many deer flies swarming around us but the biting stopped. It was absolutely amazing. FYI, the guys apologized for their skepticism. We are all now believers.

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