Keeping Bugs Away When Sitting Outdoors

We were almost driven crazy Thursday at a school baseball game by the gnats or no see 'ems. At one point my husband said he was about to roll around on the ground to fight them off! We used spray more than once and we just passed the cans around, but it was like they just waited for the air to clear and our skin to dry and then they attacked again. What can we do?

Best thing I have found is Deet, available in just about every place. Big box stores, hardware, Walmart, drug stores, etc. (03/24/2009)

Take dryer sheets with you. Rub them on your clothing then leave them laying near you. They really help. (03/24/2009)

As far as mosquitoes go, if you hang a bottle of beer with just some in the bottom, 1/4 cup, then they will go and drink themselves dizzy and then drown. Put it in a tree that is a little ways away from where you will be. (03/24/2009)

Put cheap antiseptic mouthwash (like Listerine) in a spray bottle and spray around you and on you. It is supposed to kill the bugs, especially mosquitoes. Be sure to use the yellow "nasty tasting" mouthwash and not the minty, sugary kind. (03/27/2009)
