If you are talking buffalo gnats, Avon Skin So Soft mixed 50/50 with water worked well for me.

We do too while golfing, but I hope to fend off this onslaught of "flood mosquitoes " at the same time.

i hate wearing "off" while hunting or working at the farm, but this summer is going to be full of bugs.

Default Gnats be Gone!

I had a bad problem with gnats in Brady, but a Thermacell worked great on them.

Did a Thermacell not work for you guys?

Found some new stuff around here that's been the best we've used, Swamp Swatter. It's only sold locally, but you can order it online.
