I use the hand held bug zapper. Either my eyes are so bad I don't see bugs or they just don't come near me when I'm holding this thing. If they do get close enough, ZAP!

I looked at the therma cell lantern and portable unit. Does anyone have an opinion of one over the other?
Can you grill while it is on?
Has anyone tried the lantern sized bug zappers?

Actually I use the deep woods off. It's the only thing I have found that works.

x2. Those zappers are, if nothing else, pretty entertaining.

I also use the highest concentration of DEET I can find.

At home we spray the entire perimeter of our yard with concentrated garlic. Does a surprisingly good job of keep mosquito's in check.

I use robinsonoutdoors, NO STINKIN BUGS. during the early fall I sit in a tree stand on the eastern shore of maryland hunting sika deer in the swamps. these bugs are as large as a bird and I never get bit. we also camp (sleep in the trucks beds) and they never get us when we put it on, it also comes in a fall blend that the big whitetails do not smell

Off mosquito coils work great for us.
