My cousin recently retired from Alaska DNR and was in Chicago to visit me. During several great conversations, we began talking about biting insects. He related to me that he has never used a better bug spray than Sawyer's. He said he will never head in to the bush without it!
I found it at Cabela's. Take a look at how it is used.

Sawyer Duranon Permethrin Insect Repellent
- Kills biting insects
- Application lasts up to six weeks
- Odorless when dry
Developed in cooperation with the U.S. military, government agencies, universities and others, this repellent offers superior protection from disease-carrying biting insects. The active ingredient is Permethrin, developed from a substance called pyrethrin found in certain flowers. Not only does this product repel insects, but it actually kills ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites and more than 100 other kinds of insects. Sawyer Duranon repellents are not for use on skin, but on your clothing, tents and other gear. A single application can last up to six weeks and will remain effective even if you wash the garment once a week. Permethrin is odorless when dry, and during the drying process it chemically bonds with the fibers of the treated garment, but will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces, or any of your outdoor gear.
Available: 9-oz. aerosol can, 24-oz. spray.
