Gunner......how bad are the bugs??? one of the stewards wife has a bug reciepe I plan on using.
for 2 gallons of water they add 2 bottles of mouthwash, preferable a mint flavor, add some Epsom salt, apparently it helps mix the mouth wash and sprays it. he claims the flies and skeeters hate it.
I'm willing to give it a try, how long does it last Glenn? Dog safe etc.. We have close to two acres but just hit tge high traffic areas might be worth a shot. Did you post the recipe? If not I'd like it if you dont mind..

The guy has dogs so it's safe. He said it last thru rain. He swears by it, I'll be trying in in a couple weeks. I posted it somewhere :scratch:. But here it is.

2 bottles of mouthwash to 2 gallons water.
Couple tablespoon of Epson salt. This has something to do with it diluting the mouth wash in the water.
I'm gonna us a pump sprayer for lawn weeds, eti stopped at the dollar tress in red wing got 2 bottles for 2 bucks. You use the cheap stuff and preferably a mint flavor.

It looks like my next project is to roll the lift out farther as it was all the way down & the boat didn't want to float off this morning. Just eye ballin the space between the dock & the water I would venture to guess the the lake is down at least 6-8", maybe 10" since we put it in ~ a month ago. (5/6(?))

Got back from my fourth trip and we finally got a few walleyes. Got some nice panfish also in 10 feet of water. Best trip so far, had a good fish fry and a coupe of the guys brought some fish home. The skeeters are horrible, especially by the lake. Let me know how your repellent works Glenn.   :happy1:

So while your mowing you should turn that new light on that way it'll draw the skeets to it ;), instead of turnin you into a pin cushion. :nerd: :sleazy: :sleazy: :evil: :smiley: :smiley:

I've heard the best thing you can do is to give your neighbor one of the biggest bug zappers you can buy.  Then all of the bugs are over there.
