Insect Repellent Shirts For Africa

Page Updated: Feb 2021

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

Insect repellent shirts are made with material impregnated with an insect repellent such as permethrin or another proprietary brand.

A Permethrin Insect Repellent Shirts 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 shirts.
  • 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 shirts 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 shirts and industrial quantites of deet smeared on exposed skin may help.
