Canadian mosquitoes are big but they are slowwwww.Living in the land of the mosquito I can categorically deny that bounce sheets do anything. If you want to keep the mossies from biting, then use DEET. Very few other things are effective, and none are as effective as DEET.
One hesitates to inject any science content but there has never been any serious scientifically valid study done that found bounce sheets or that other old chestnut, Avon skinsosoft to do any good.
And Im guessing that DEET and plastic key touches / laquer are probably not great bed fellows either
If it's that dangerous for your horn, what's it doing to your body?+1 to what Canadian said. DEET is the only thing that really works. All those phony home remedies are useless. When I was working in Alaska, back in the '80s we had army surplus DEET that was 'industrial' strength and it would eat through just about anything. You don't want it anywhere near your horn!! Cutters has DEET as the active ingredient but not as strong as the stuff we had. I much prefer Cutters or the Cutters roll-on. It's not as caustic as the heavy-duty stuff, but you still don't want it on your horn. Use with care.
Yeah, that's why I never used it unless the bugs were unbearable. And, like I said, where I live here on the coast in the Bay Area there are no biting insects (well maybe the odd spider or two, but no big deal).
There are plenty of biting insects in the Bay area. Just most of them aren't arthropods, but rather hominids of some variety or another...Yeah, that's why I never used it unless the bugs were unbearable.

I absolutely HATE chiggers! Aaaaaaaaaaah!I did an outdoor wedding in June 2007 and the yard was full of these:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002309/
Let me tell you something they get in to places that I can not even speak of here on sotw, and they last for two or three weeks.
Unlike some of the east coast folks, there is no plastic in my body
