Insect repellent lol, love seeing these old bottles. Not sure the date, but it was made in the USA

    I remember using 6-12 when I was a kid. Just imagine how many mosquitoes you can grow in Minnesota, the "Land of Ten Thousand Lakes".

    It was very popular when I was young. We used it while in the Que. bush near where I lived and at our Adirondack camp. I can still remember the smell. That and the infamous DDT. Very, very greasy and mildly effective. No where near as effective as todays DEET based products.

    I found a bottle of 6-12 insect repellent in my cold air return while cleaning my ducts.
