    You might as well try shooting them skeeters with your .270 for all the good it will do you.

    I don't really know anyone who has tried that gizmo.

    Please let me know if it works.

    Battery powered skeeter chasers only work on

    Don't know if it's the same gizmo that you are talking about, but I tried one several years ago that was about the size of a penlight, to be clipped on your belt. I think I got more bites while wearing it than I did without it.

    If you strap them all around your body. Like maybe a thousand of them. I think you can fly.

    270., in the summer I live in skeeter heaven; think about the sound of millions of the critters buzzing all at once, and you will get an idea of what I am talking about. Try and remember back to the old Deep Woods Off commercial, where the fellow sticks his arm in an aquarium with 10,000 of the little biting buggers. Think of a state that actually was all swamp and the main inhabitants were the little blood sucking buzzards. Then add it all up when I say I stay on an island in the summer that has more swamp than land and as far as you can see is cane weed and bogs surrounded by miles of more swamp and weeds. Believe me I have seen everything used from foggers to repellant to the electronic gizmos and they don't work!

    Don't know about the skeeters, but a friend in AZ had gophers. He bought several of those electronic gopher chasers. They did work, every place he put one, the gophers dug a hole. Go figure!
