No see um

I'm looking at tents and seen this in a description on ebay...


All windows are "No see-um mesh" you can see out but no one can see in.

Re: No see um

Obviously they've never been camping in South Florida.... Those suckers will suck you dry and their poison lasts for a long, long, long time...

ONE.

Try in MAINE. Things will drain a small adult in about 3 minutes.


We won't EVEN talk about the black flies.

Re: No see um

Blackflies!??? NO problem. You can see those suckers. I used to use a 12ga. for them until I found out the boat sunk slower using a .410. Extra time to save the beer cooler and put on a life jacket with a smaller hole in the hull!

Those Noseeummms.... Dayuumm...I'd buy Raid by the case and I still couldn't keep up. Moose are second, black bear third in line for nuisances IMO, but blackflies!??? DEET and a live grenade will keep you comfy until the float plane comes back to pick you and your walleyes up to go home.

Sheesh...you sound like a beginner!~

After coming from FL and yeah they had lots of skeeters but they were small. So the blackflies to me were just nasty.

Out here in the desert we get skeeters everyonce in awhile but by noon the next day they just vaporize.

Re: No see um

No problem with skeeters around here either. We just stand between two trees and their wingspan won't let them get to you.
