Mosquito repellent

Travelling out into the Yamal Peninsula in a seemingly indestructible tundra truck like a tank, is interrupted by a branch stuck in the caterpillar tracks. Forced to make a stop to get it fixed, we are eaten alive by mosquitoes. During the summer months Yamal is invaded by innumerable amounts of the bloodthirsty insects. Smoke from fires keeps them away, temporarily.
