After reading the experience below, I have a new found fear of these devices, especially around water!

The combination of Permethrin treated clothes and microencapsulated DEET (Ultrathon) is ridiculously effective against mosquitoes. If you don't like the stuff on your skin, the clothing treatment only works pretty darn well. The problem with standard DEET is that it evaporates quickly, leaving just a greasy slime, bad odor, but no protection against bites.
