Default bug repellant?

1 of my bow stands this year is going to be about 35 yds from a pond. the mosqitos tend to try and carry you off on the warm days. i am wondering if any of yall have found some type of bug repel stuff that actually works that want give off a scent that deer will pick up on. most of the stuff i have come across that claims to be scent free i can smell it. and if i can smell it i know deer can. any ideas will be appreciated.

The thermacell is great but only while in one spot and I use deep woods off untill I get settled in.Would love to get one of those bugproff suits.Would also love some sentblocker duds but not in my budit.
Ohh well For now I'll stick with the off.Playing the wind from the side works for me.In other words don't hunt upwind or downwind but with the wind crossing in front of you.You might be pleasantly surprised.Learned this after being busted by several bucks coming in behind me while facing into the wind.Also need to be on their travel route because a wary buck with circle a food source to test the wind before coming in most of the time.
Good Luck

Default Bugproof suit

I was lucky enough to come across a full suit at Gander Mountain for $15.00 It is thin, camo, 3 piece with full hood that has elastic straps that go over your shoulders. The hood also has a "see-through" mesh section that isn't camo'd. The only down side to the suit was getting the pants over my boots. the entire suit comes in a little "package" that measures about six cubic inches.
the suit did a great job while I was spring turkey hunting along river-bottoms and dense cover.
