That is a fat little bastard
Worst I've ever had it was in Humphreys Basin a couple of years ago. DEET and treated clothes didn't phase them, nor did the high garlic diet and B1 patches I brought along to try. Nothing. Until I tried the Cutter with Picaridin. Not sure why, but it worked the best, but I had to apply it often. Something about my odor profile is like heroin to the little bastards. My wife or kids don't seem to be pestered by them while they are ten feet form me, while I will be covered, being bit through my hat, shirt, etc.
Managed to execute this fellow leaving his body intact, while he was still feeding.
I had plenty of opportunities. At times you could kill 10 at once. This was on the John Muir Trail in a very wet 2006 near Deer Creek.
