Abstract
Combat clothing and wide-mesh hoods treated with the insecticide permethrin have been evaluated for protection against biting flies. Experiments on human subjects indicate excellent protection against mosquitoes from both the clothing and the hoods. Experiments on plastic heads baited with dry-ice indicate moderate protection against blackflies from the hoods whereas the deet treated hoods gave excellent protection to the uncovered face.
