    Hey all this has been the worst year for insect bites. I am currently nursing a swollen arm from 2 yellow jacket bites while out cutting fire wood for the winter.
    My question is there a good all around insect repellent that works on bees wasp and the like.
    I don't know if it is the drought we are currently going through that has made them so bad, but this is the worst year in a long time for bees.:help:

    Fabric softner swaths in your shirt pockets made by Bounce, sold at the
    laundry supply area in food stores works for us. I don't know why they do,I
    got the idea from Lawnsite last year from someone else, tried them, and have not had a bite this year. Yea, the dry weather they really seem to have more nests and this year in particular. Use fresh ones daily.
