Well,. Anyone have any input on how these devices work on the dreaded no see um?  If the unit even cuts down the attacks to a certain degree that would be a bonus.

I've always used them while hunting in the fall from my tree stand.  I'd even had it strapped to my pack going to and from my stand or even scouting.  I wouldn't have hunted early bow without one.

Theyve been brutal lately, especially when the wind goes calm. Repellent only intermittently effective on them.

I have one I used for mosquitoes while turkey hunting.  Providing there was no wind, and you sat directly under it, it worked good.  

If there was any wind, forget it.  Tried it on the canal a couple times. Always windy on the canal, didn't work at all.  If it's windy, learn to love bugs.

I have a feeling these are not at all proven against the little ba@#$#@#.  Probably just continue to belt out the 4 letter adjectives as I get dressed up for the beach.

I'm willing to bet they would work on noseeums if there wasn't much wind.
A light breeze you can use two, one up wind and one down wind.

Much more wind than that and effectiveness wans.

 

I can tell you they work like magic on black flies in the bear woods.

I could just set the babies up like tiki torches.

Yeah I'm starting to understand why guys wear face buffs. :squid:

black fly head nets work for this and you can walk around.

Get a bug hat. They're very stylish and they work.

Don’t work. They’re small enough to get through the mesh. I’ve done a bunch of Everglades camping excursions for tarpon over the years and what we get up here pales in comparison to the amount of them down there. Days are spent on the boat, nights in a tent. Those little bastards get through the tent screen just fine. The thermacells work great, but only with light wind. On some of the worst occasions we’ve been forced to keep one in the tent. Probably terrible for health, but you’d go insane without it anyway.
