The Best Mosquito and Tick Defense for Camping Backpacking

The Best Mosquito and Tick Defense for Camping Backpacking

A quick video on the two best insect repellents that I use when the mosquitos and ticks are out in force. The worst part of camping backpacking and enjoying the outdoors for a lot of people is the insects. I’ve found a combination that’s pretty effective at keeping two of the worst ( Mosquitos & Ticks ) at bay.

    That poison goes into your pores and who knows what that poison does to you in the long term. Why do I have cancer? why do I have liver or kidney failer? I thought that poison I was spraying all over me was safe.

    I like 3M Ultrathon repellent for mosquitoes. It’s 34% DEET and it’s microencapsulated so it lasts all day. Higher percentages of DEET don’t work better without the lotion base and synergists to make them last. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/Ultrathon-Insect-Repellent-Lotion-2-oz-/?N=5002385+3291245920&preselect=8709316+8740615+8744794&rt=rud

    Great video as usual Casey. I’m a couple hours south and a bit west of you Casey and the mosquitoes can be pretty bad but dang if the forest isn’t full of wasps and hornets! Couple years ago I was camping in late summer where I hunt in the fall and I got stung in the back right through my Pendleton flannel AND my t-shirt by a huge black hornet. It felt like I’d been shot with a
    .22 LR lol Got back to camp and into my tent so I could remove my shirts and I had a welt bigger than a silver dollar already, and I’m not allergic to anything.

    🇺🇸👍GOOD INFORMATION THANKS

    Ben’s 100 will melt or soften plastic. I’ve "melted" the ear pieces on my eye glasses, they got soft and turned to mush. Another thing to consider is do not use DEET anywhere near fishing gear. DEET repels fish more than mosquitoes. Keep your gear and fingers free of DEET, otherwise you’ll be just swatting bugs while the hook is in the water. Flying bloodsuckers…

    Vics vapor rub works for ticks



  18. chrisdc on November 21, 2020 at 3:02 am

    ohhh man those bloodsuckers are nasty. Keep your powder dry Coyote.



  19. David Lewis on November 21, 2020 at 3:04 am

    I’ve put dog flea collars around my boot tops here in Texas works well , but still spray pant legs . I hate ticks really really hate em .



  20. Ex-Law Enforcement on November 21, 2020 at 3:06 am

    You Sir, are very Correct on the "Tick’s" being UP HIGH in the Brush and Tree’s. When I was growing up Many Decades ago in the woods at home I’d ride on the work team of horse’s we had and the Ticks would Fall, Jump, Claw, Whatever they’d do, to get on the horse’s. Now Work Horse’s are Very Tall animals Not the same size as a Quarter Horse. We always used a Cider branch and we brushed our pants leg with them to try and knock off the dang thing’s. Back then there wasn’t any Spray’s for ’em and we couldn’t afford any of it If it was around. Excellent video👍, Casey. Thank’s.



  21. Canesser on November 21, 2020 at 3:06 am

    Studies some years ago indicated that anything more than 29% DEET was no more effective. Careful with getting that stuff on plastics and camera equipment! Love the form factor of Ben’s DEET. Looks like a common moose tick at the end of the video. There are some nasty ones out there now, even one making a person allergic to red meat and of course the ubiquitous Lyme Disease. There is also RMSF (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever). Gotta protect ourselves!



  22. Olena Mcquagge on November 21, 2020 at 3:08 am

    Iguana oil is suppose to be effective for repelling mosquitoes.



  23. Stephen Whittier on November 21, 2020 at 3:09 am

    I was out hiking once and came upon a fella from the local university that was doing a study on ticks. He had a piece of white bed sheet about 4 foot square attached to a long pole. He would fan the bed sheet back and forth over the grass and shrubs up to 5 foot. He would use the white bed sheet as ticks are attracted to lighter colors. His studies showed first off, a very healthy tick population and that he got moderate to high results from the grass and high results from the shrubs. His explanation was that due to the healthy deer population the ticks had better opportunities for a host up higher, attaching themselves to the body of the deer being more successful than trying to attach on the legs. Food for thought.



  25. Oldman Winter on November 21, 2020 at 3:11 am

    Good info Casey from the best outdoors testing laboratory. Thanks for sharing.



  26. Leonard Urban on November 21, 2020 at 3:13 am

    THANKS for posting this!



  27. Steven Canfield on November 21, 2020 at 3:13 am

    I used to be anti-chemical and didn’t often use insect repellent… then about 8 or 9 years ago I contracted Lyme disease from three tick bites and it nearly killed me. Now I am a firm believer in using repellents like you showed. Lyme disease and the other bacteria that ticks carry like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and others, can literally ruin your life and in some cases end it. Lyme disease is insidious because the symptoms mimic so many other diseases and it often gets misdiagnosed as it did in my case. Ticks are no joke and I am more concerned with them than any other dangers in the great outdoors. Thank you for sharing this video and information. I hope it prevents others from having to go through what I have (and still am). You are absolutely correct about ticks hanging on foliage waiting for wildlife or humans to pass by. I have found ticks on my ball cap and I know that they didn’t climb up there from my feet and I have seen them just as you have, waiting on branches and leaves for an opportunity.



  28. Mr. Shellcracker on November 21, 2020 at 3:16 am

    You’re supposed to let the permethrin dry before wearing. It’s more toxic in it’s liquid form.



  29. Grace Frazier on November 21, 2020 at 3:17 am

    Very much appreciate this video’s suggestions! Here in the South, mosquitoes and ticks are thick for much of the year, so screened porches are necessary. Any walking around one’s garden requires protection, and your tips seem to be well worth trying. Thank you.



  30. 7Storm7 7 on November 21, 2020 at 3:20 am

    Kill that tick CW. And hang his head head for all the rest to see… 😡 Can’t stands them or mosquitoes!! 👎 Skin so soft was used for years by our family with our dogs. Awesome stuff…



  31. Don Motz on November 21, 2020 at 3:22 am

    Good info….thanx man.



  32. Uncle Joe on November 21, 2020 at 3:23 am

    I treat all my hiking clothes essentially at once and hang to dry. Shoes, socks, pants, shirt, and sometimes my hats. Not underwear, however. Permethrin is harmful to cats when wet so be careful around pets.



  33. David Stillman on November 21, 2020 at 3:24 am

    WHEN WE HAD SAFETY MEETINGS AT WORK THEY SAID THE SAME THING. I TOLD THEM TO GET OUT OF THE OFFICE. WHEN I WALKED IN THE WOODS FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE YOU COULD HEAR THEM FALLING THROUGH THE TREES LEAVES. SAME WITH THE RED VELVET ANT / WHICH IS A WINGLESS BEE / YOU DON’T WANT TO GET STUNG BY IT. THEY CALL IT THE COW KILLER. THEY SAID THERE WEREN’T ANY AROUND OUR AREA SO THE NEXT TIME I CAME ACROSS ONE I CAUGHT IT & TOOK IT TO MY OFFICE & CALLED THEM UP SO THEY COULD BRING IT TO THE NEXT CLASS / MEETING! THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME TAG ALONG WITH YOU! AWESOME VIDEOS! BE SAFE! HAVE FUN! GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS! ENJOYED!



  34. Steven Canfield on November 21, 2020 at 3:24 am

    As far as Permethrin being dangerous to humans, I think not so much if you wash your hands and be sure not to inhale it or ingest it. From the National Pesticide Information Center: Permethrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are synthetic chemicals that act like natural extracts from the chrysanthemum flower. Permethrin is used in a number of ways to control insects. Products containing permethrin may be used in public health mosquito control programs. They may be used on food and feed crops, on ornamental lawns, on livestock and pets, in structures and buildings, and on clothing. Permethrin may also be used in places where food is handled, such as restaurants. Permethrin was first registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) in 1979, and was re-registered in 2006.

    What are some products that contain permethrin?
    Products containing permethrin may be liquids, powders, dusts, aerosol solutions, sprays, and treated clothing. Permethrin is used in cattle ear tags and (dog) flea collars, or in spot-on treatments for dogs. There are currently more than 1400 registered products containing permethrin. Some products are used to treat scabies and head lice on people. These products are drugs and are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
    DEET is primarily a repellent and not an insecticide like Permetherin. "DEET is commonly used in combination with insecticides and can strengthen the toxicity of carbamate insecticides which are also acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. Studies indicate that DEET has neurological effects on insects in addition to known olfactory effects, and that its toxicity is strengthened in combination with other insecticides." There has also been some controversy about the safety of DEET with humans over the years. DEET is also of varying effectiveness depending on the specie of mosquito.
    I won’t quit using them.



  35. J Ad on November 21, 2020 at 3:27 am

    I like to use natural products on my skin, when they work. But i much rather use 100% deet and avoid the diseases you could get from ticks and mosquitoes.



  36. 我是阿肯 on November 21, 2020 at 3:29 am

    Wend u have roof top tent,how do u car wash?



  37. Errol Hook on November 21, 2020 at 3:30 am

    Permitherin from Sawyer. Works on sheets and bedding too.



  38. Rogue Preparedness on November 21, 2020 at 3:31 am

    Yeah I’m not messing around with mosquitos or ticks. DEET, no DEET, as long as it works! Thanks for the great vid!



  39. Simon t on November 21, 2020 at 3:31 am

    Bring on winter camping in snow



  40. nick pelentsov on November 21, 2020 at 3:33 am

    TICKS JUMP OFF BRANCHES,BUSHES..ITS TRUE.



  41. KAL B. on November 21, 2020 at 3:34 am

    Don’t spray that stuff so close to your paint. Can f it up.



  42. JenNYC263 on November 21, 2020 at 3:35 am

    Permethrin for clothes and gear, yes tent, pack, etc. Picaridin for skin. Have been using this combo for almost two years now and have not had one tick, mosquito or even a black fly bite!



  43. Casey Lorenzana on November 21, 2020 at 3:35 am

    Nice video man. I use the exact same stuff lol. I’m also out here in Central Oregon (Sisters). So it must be a good combo here!



  44. liveunderwater on November 21, 2020 at 3:36 am

    One thing to be aware of with 100% Deet is…Do NOT put 100% Deet on synthetic fabrics. It can dissolve some of the fabric of synthetic clothes and tents. Just an FYI.



  45. DMR Dude on November 21, 2020 at 3:37 am

    Been using Ben’s for decades. Good stuff!



  46. Lenny C on November 21, 2020 at 3:39 am

    Good solid information. We have the same problems over here in Europe, especially near bodies of water.
