    Vaping / E-cigs / Cigarettes

    Guys, I used to smoke quite heavily around 20 a day, when shooting form highseats in the midge infested west of Scotland along with my skin so soft/smidge/deet it seemed to do the trick but now I have stopped smoking and started vaping with an ecig, well this summer the midges were intolerable!!! has it just been a bad year for them? are cigarettes really that good a deterrent for the wee buggers or is the sweet smelling ecig vape actually attracting them? has there been any studies done into this I cant find anything and if so is there any ecig oil that will work as a deterrent. I dare say vaping deet oil or citronella oil would probably work in keeping away the midges however I don't fancy my lungs chances of survival long term!!!

    I started on the e cigs, they certainly don't work on midges in my opinion. You can't beat three pipefuls of a strong tobacco when sitting behind a grouse butt picking up on a humid day. Used to smoke one after another then reload whilst my poor grey coloured dogs whimpered alongside me. I have even seen guns starting a smokey fire in a butt on bad days.

    Keep the Faith.
