Does ThermaCELL repel deer flies?
Similarly, what will repel deer flies?
Treat your local area with repellents like citronella or naphthalene. These repellents are best applied during the day, when deer flies are most active.
Likewise, what scent do deer flies hate? Tea tree seems to work best against ticks, chiggers, and deer flies, while citronella, lemon, and eucalyptus are the best for fending off mosquitos and black flies.
Similarly, it is asked, does Skin So Soft repel deer flies?
Skin So Soft does not work. Nothing is more effective than 100% DEET. You can buy the DEET brand or Deep Woods Off or Just make sure it says 100% DEET in the ingredients.
Can deer smell Thermacell?
There are a couple of downsides to using a Thermacell during deer season. The Thermacell doesn't smell bad — but it does smell. And if I can smell it, a deer can definitely smell it. On days with a light but steady breeze, the vapor gets carried upward and downwind.
