Just a quick comment on the Clam Quick-Set. They set up quick-easy and keeps the bugs away. But on the down side when it’s hot out even with a 5-10 mph wind has hardly any air flow through the screen side so that make them hot to sit in. We’re camping now with it set up and have to keep a fan running on high inside to to make it bearable just to sit in to eat.

We have been using a Termacell for years.
Put it at your picnic table or where ever you sit about ten minutes prior to sitting and as long as there is no wind you won't have any bugs. they are good for about a fifteen foot diameter circle.

Screen rooms are great, but you do need to spray inside to get rid of the bugs that sneak in !

I have been using a Thermacell for about 5 years now. Super happy with it. It works well.

Usually they are out bad just before dark. After dark they usually stay away unless you are walking thru grass. We have also found that having a rug down seems to help.
