Insect Repellent Socks For Africa

Do you really need insect repellent socks for hunting in Africa?

Insect repellent socks are made with material impregnated with an insect repellent such as permethrin

A Permethrin Insect Repellent Socks Are Useful...

  • If you wear them in the evenings when most malaria-carrying and non-malarial mosquitoes bite. Most hunters shower before dinner and prefer to keep their feet bare, just wearing soft shoes or sandals. Also having washed all the day's grime away, many hunters are loath to put on more insect repellent just at the time they need it most. Big will not just be you enjoying your meal - under the table in the dark, mosquitoes will be dining out too on your feet and ankles.
  • Wearing insect repellent socks while out hunting will also deter ticks which usually start their upward journey on your body from your feet or ankles.
  • If you are going to hunt in a malarial area of Africa and want to take every possible precaution.
  • Certainly, if you are hunting in swamp areas, rainforests or thick damp vegetation near water, where swarms of mosquitoes can make your life a misery, permethrin-impregnated socks and industrial quantites of deet smeared on exposed skin may help.
