    Question for the outdoorsy types here on ECF: Have you found that vapor attracts insects, i.e. mosquitoes, flies, bees, etc.?

    Going through my mental check list for packing for an upcoming fishing trip and the sweet smell of my Boba's Bounty vapor got me to thinking about this. Am I better off with my DIY bacco juice? Will sweet juices like Boba's, vanilla custards, strawberry and cream make fighting off the mosquitoes and biting flies even worse?

    If you have observed first hand would love to know, thanks!

    that is an awesome question - I was trout fishing deep in the Georgia woods and vaping away as I did and I cant remember the bugs being bad - I would say you will be ok - I don't remember it being any worse than normal - good luck let us know what happen

    I vape outside in my garden all the time and I have not noticed the vapor attracting or repelling anything.
    Of course, I haven't tried citronella juice yet...

    AFAIK mosquitoes are attracted to CO2 (ie the fancy propane mosquitoes killers) so doubt the 'sweetness' of vapor would effect them, now fruit flies etc may be attracted to the bottle/PV's but i doubt the vapor would enough to cause much of a change in "bug level"

    I think this depends upon the flavor of your juice. The sweet & fruity flavors may attract flying insects and bees.

    I'm not sure it attracts bugs, but I know it doesn't make them go away like cigarettes used to.

    Was out front with some neighbors the other night. Bugs started showing up for the party. I used to be able to blow smoke around my head and they would go bother someone else. Didn't work with vape! I was vaping a berry mix that was kind of sweet; I think it actually attracted them!

    Depends on where you're at. The critters down South will run away like little screaming girls if you look at them funny. Here up North they just laugh and take a bite out of any exposed flesh. (Then they lift your wallet).

    Yah, we're talkin' extreme north woods WI where the mosquito is the state bird so I think I'm in for it.

    I did notice a great number of mosquitos coming into my place during hot rainy days, but it could be because the AC heat attracted them and also my window was not insulated properly. I'll try Citronella DEET as a first DYI experiment. I bet the throat hit would be unbelievable!

    Gnats seem to not mind the vapor :( They run from cigarette smoke though
