With the chemicals emitted by the human body, carbon dioxide seems to be the biggest culprit that attracts mosquitoes. Earlene gets fussy with me as I can walk through a swarm of mosquitoes and not get bitten and she just needs two around her and welts will show up. I must not emit enough carbon dioxide. That's one of the reasons I test the floor with one foot when I get up in the morning to see if it is still there.

Thanks for the info. I did a google search and although it was hard to find those exact ingredients I did come up with this for the allethrin that I had to share. It seams that this has the potential to be a mutant product.

"Mutagenic Effects

Allethrin has been found to be mutagenic under certain conditions in strains of the bacterium Salmonella typhinurium (3). However, 2 other tests of bioallethrin for mutagenicity (DNA damage and reverse mutation) were negative (5)."

You should not get any of it on your skin..."Allethrin is slightly to moderately toxic by dermal absorption and ingestion (2). Short-term dermal exposure to allethrin may cause itching, burning, tingling, numbness, a feeling of warmth, with no dermatitis (2). Exposure to large doses by any route may lead to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hyperexcitability, incoordination, tremors, convulsive twitching, convulsions, bloody tears, incontinence, muscular paralysis, prostration and coma (2). Persons sensitive to ragweed pollen are at increased risk from exposure to allethrin (2).
Allethrin is a central nervous system stimulant (2). Heavy respiratory exposure caused incoordination and urinary incontinence in mice and rats (2)."

It's a good thing I'm not a mouse or rat.

There..I've done my duty for today. Hope yours is sunny and mosquito free.

There are actually some warnings on the cache page by the owner. Find at your own risk. We have actually placed one with warnings... You need good sturdy shoes, have to find your own way down a steep bank and find your own way across a wide creek (downed trees) and then make your way across moss covered rocks to find a cave behind a waterfall. The cache is located in the cave. The water is ice cold from snow melt.

And then of course there are the ones blown up by the bomb squad. They just blew one up in Kennewick as a suspicious bomb. The owner replaced it and renamed it with an appropriate bombicous name.

Steve, Annie!


Just saying hello. Saw your post on the Thermocell thing. Gooks good, so we ordered one.


Do hope you are enjoying the FT life. We are still in Florida, waiting until June to get back on the road. We've been doing stuff, putting in sinks and faucets and solar panels and shelves and just generally keeping busy 'til we can get going again.


We plan to go north from here, so we have no idea when we might meet up again.


With 35000 posts, the MUTANTS have been busy, that's for sure!


Well, I need to go out and install the brake gadget on out toad..........always sumtin'!


Tom

Yes, but is it real maple or that poly-olly-golly chemical they use to mimic and increase the flavor? I'm done w/ that fake stuff, no matter how good it tastes and smells.

Ah, the magic of modern chemistry. Peaches aren't good enuff, nor maple sirple, nor are they cheap enuff.

Anybody need the soapbox now? I'm done. (Sorta.) 😳
