Insect Repellent Pants For Africa

Page Updated: Mar 2024

Do you need insect repellent pants for hunting in Africa?

Insect repellent pants do the job in one of two ways...

  • The pants are made with material impregnated with an insect repellent such as permethrin OR
  • Mesh pants are worn over your regular pants to create a physical barrier against insects.

Permethrin Insect Repellent Pants Are Useful...

  • If you have always been particularly bothered by insects or are a 'mosquito-magnet', you might find some relief by wearing insect repellent pants.
  • Certainly, if you are going to hunt in a malarial area of Africa and want to take every possible precaution.
  • However, know that most malaria-carrying and non-malarial mosquitos bite at dusk and during the night, so insect repellent pants should be specifically worn at these times.
  • 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 pants or mesh over-pants and industrial quantites of deet smeared on exposed skin may help.
