Best Mosquito Proof Clothing – Sun and Bug Protection
I must admit that I am a mosquito 🦟 magnet. They just love me. And this year for some reason, the mosquitos (and gnats, ticks, no-see-ums, etc) seem to be a hundred times worse.
Normally, mosquitos come out at dusk and dawn. This past summer, even though it didn’t get dark until 9:00, they were out at 5:00. What’s up with that?
That was in NY. Now that we are back in Florida for the winter (Florida doesn’t have a winter, lol), so we will still have to fight off the mosquitos for another 6 months! 🙄
We like to sit out and have a campfire a couple of times a week. I’ve read to throw a bunch of sage in the fire, it’ll keep the skeeters away! Nope! It doesn’t work.
Wear long pants and long sleeves outside. It’s kind of hard sitting outside by a fire in 70°.
Sure you can use bug bite after the fact, but I don’t want to get any bites at all.
But even so, them darn little buggers bite me through my sweatpants and sweatshirt. Sweatpants! How does that even happen?
Thankfully, North Fork Gear has come out with the Best Mosquito Proof Clothing around.
But Do They Work
I was skeptical too at first. We have had a lot of rain in the past couple of days, so I was able to really find out.
We have a swamp right behind us at about 50 feet in NY.
In Florida, the swamp is right across the street from us. So there is no getting away from water sources.
Standing rainwater in plants, puddles, ponds supports local foliage and wildlife and breeds mosquitoes that can make anyone miserable.
So we headed outside to sit for a while and see what would happen.
And you know what? The portions of our bodies that were covered with the North Fork Gear Mosquito Proof Clothing were not touched by any mosquitos.
That is fantastic. Can I get an entire outfit made with insect repellent fabric?

Mosquitoes carry diseases such as Zika and West Nile Viruses, Lyme Disease, and Dengue Fever.
And with the pandemic still in full swing, who knows if they can carry that too.
Most people think Mosquito Proof Clothing is only good against mosquitos. 🦟
But they are also effective against ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges.
These are great for the entire family.
