    Off - Clip on Mosquito Repellent

    Has anyone ever tried this product when riding trails in the woods when mosquitos and gnats are prevalent ?

    It just sounds too good to be true!

    It is too good to be true. The only one that works for me is the spray.

    The clip is designed for stationary or minimal movement use, like a portable citronela candle.

    I tried it at my cousins cottage, although not riding it only worked when I was still and didn't move.

    If it sounds too good to be true it probably because it is. Doesn't work as advertised unfortunately.

    Tried it - waste of money. It theoretically would work if you don't move and there is no wind. Spray on repellent does much better.

    Rode yesterday at our favorite place, Stewart Forest in NY. It was finally rideable after all of the rain and the temperature was reasonable, the only issue was gnats and lots of them. We used sprays and wipes but the tiny pests were constantly in your face!

    I do not know of a solution for this.

    Used the bug wipes on the face but the gnats keep coming. The wife thinks some kind of a plastic face shield off of the helmet brim would keep then away!

    I carry a head net rolled into a small ball in my pak during the summer months. I don't have to break it out but once or twice season... but when I do... it's worth every penny it costs as well as the small space it consumes in my pak.

    Don't care what it looks like, it sure keeps the bugs out of your face, out of your lungs / mouth / eyes and getting all up in your helmet.

    It works great for me when stationary & no breeze

    I don't even bother when riding. Skeeters & gnats only bother me when I stop pedalling, so I don't stop.

    On a few trails I ride I use the head net, like gnewcomer said, I'm tired of swallowing bugs This is only a problem on the climb so it works really well.

    Looks like it will keep the bugs at bay, but not looking like it would offer any head protection!

    Good one, though!
