Why would anyone use bug spray when the Thermacell is so effective?

I reckon if they don't have one...or if for whatever reason the hunting conditions make the thermacell less effective...

Thernacell works great for mosquitoes. At the lease, gnats, not mosquitoes, are the problem. However the earth bug spray doesn't cover the scent. So I just use skunk to cover the regular bug spray.

Why not use permethrin to spray down your clothes?
