I run a junior golf camp during the summer in South Florida and the gnats are horrible for about (1) month. The gnats make it miserable for the coaches and kids, especially, after applying mandatory sunscreen, they stick to every exposed body part. They stick to your lips, eye lashes, ears, face, arms, legs, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions to keep these awful pests away? We've tried several conventional and non-conventional remedies and nothing seems to work. We've tried Skin So Soft (Avon), Deet, fabric softener, various types of bug repellent, etc. Note: We are not confined to one area. We are on the range, putting green, chipping green, bunkers, and the golf course so it would need to be a product applied to the skin. Please help! Any new suggestions? All ideas are welcome. Thank you.

Try dryer sheets! Before blocking up have the kids rub any sheet maybe bounce on skin and then hang them from pockets or tie around ponytails. I hope it works for gnats as well as it does for mosquitoes up in NJ.

I'm in central Florida where we have biting sand gnats. The safest and most effective spray we have found is Coleman® SkinSmart® Insect Repellent which is manufactured by Wisconsin Pharmacal Company. Until a few weeks ago we could always find this product in the Sporting Goods Department at Walmart. Unfortunately, it has left the shelves of the three nearest to us and we are now ordering it off the web. Some websites have very high prices for this product so beware. A reasonable price is around $5 to $6 dollars per can.

We gets Gnats here in Texas just about every year. I use Vanilla (liquid form) from the baking section of our local grocery store. I just dab it on around my hair line and around my neck and ears. This seems to work pretty good for me. Good luck.
