Why Are No See Ums Attracted To Me?

Why Are No See Ums Attracted To Me?

If you are human, you breathe!  And when you breathe you emit a flume of carbon dioxide.  Either stop breathing or get a bottle of Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope!

Today, science has proven that mosquitoes, black flies, no see um, chiggers, minges, deer flies, and ticks are all attracted to one thing......the carbon dioxide flume that all humans and animals exhale when they breathe!  (Research the Reseach)  And, science has also proven that certain formulas of fragrances will interfere with an insect's ability to detect carbon dioxide. 

"If they cannot find you, they cannot bite you!" says Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope.

As an ole time Mainer, Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope has always been a staple in my tackle box.  However, now that I am a snow bird I was not prepared for the vicious noseeums in Florida!  I sent for a bottle of fly dope, sprayed it on my fishing hat, and NOSEEUMS NO MORE!

Back in 1910, when fly fisherman Obie Sherer was being chased from his favorite fishing hole in Maine by a hungry horde of black flies that he noticed a local Native American sitting peaceably by the stream without a biting insect in sight!  Now this was way before chemical bug repellents became in vogue.  Deet was not patented until 1946.

Somewhere in his mind, either by chance or his love of fly fishing, Obie reckoned that a particular blend of natural fragrances from living in the woods could protect a person from biting insects!  Using a base formula that hunters in the day applied to themselves to camouflage their human scent, Obie developed a product that he called Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope.  Soon thereafter a logging foreman saw Obie peaceably fishing in his favorite spot.  A handshake contract was made and the first commercial batch of Fly Dope was sold.

Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope.  The world's first and best protection against all biting insects!

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

I have been battling these little ugly evil looking insects for three going on four years now. The infestation started and caused the first motorhome inhabetable. Somehow they hitched a ride and followed me and my wife into our replacement motorhome and are still bitting me but thankfully not my wife. 6 or 7 years ago the great salt lake Antolope island was infested with no see ums but some found their way to mainland. Been effected by this as the VA hospital thinks I’m nuts. Wait until they see under amicroscope what caught for them. This has been an ongoing nightmare for me and almost through in the towel but hung on for my wife. Glad I ran across your add. Thanks
