Have you guys had any trouble with the no see em? They are tiny little black gnats. We haven't had a problem with them all year and all of a sudden they invaded us. Buggin' use to work on them but now it doesn't phase them, and neither does deet. We have had unseasonably warm weather here, which is a good thing but you can't sit outside to enjoy it with those damn things bugging you.

I will send ours your way. Maybe you can be the pied piper of stink bugs.

Hmmm...kind of odd about those no-seeums showing up again at this time of year! We get them as well, but in the Spring time. I hope they stay away until next year!

Hopefully your situation will soon change and they disappear again! Nasty critters...and aptly named! They are barely visible!

I prefer none of the above. At least stink bugs don't bite ๐Ÿ˜‚

I've noticed gnats being bad this year also. Usually we only have them in spring,, this year they never stopped. They were driving my wife crazy last week overfeeding the front lawn.

When on beach in St, John USVI we coated ourselves with suntan oil. They were too small to get through it to bite.

They are bad here, too. Trying to work on the combine yesterday they drove me nuts. We also have a different kind in our house that are a little bigger and bite, too.

Believe it or not, I spray myself with Lysol. From the top of my head down to my feet. I also take the spray can with me. And spray them when they fly near me. Lysol also works on flies too. When you spray them their wings get wet and they can't fly. And when they lick their feet. It will kill them. RIP Maggette. If you are a drinking person. You can drink beer it contains Brewers Yeast or you if you are not a drinking person. You can purchase Brewers Yeast tablets
1,000mg From Spring Valley. I believe they sell them at Walmart. I hope this helps

Canadian loggers taught me the trick to put fabric softener sheets (the kind you put in the dryer) in your pockets couldn't believe how well they worked when I go on fishing trips I shove a bunch of them in my suitcase all my clothes have that lemon smell and I don't get bothered by them blood suckers๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

not sure about fabric softener sheets for no see ems but it works for mice so why not? But when I lived up north they use to soak a strip of cloth in diesel and tie it around their hat. I was told it attracts them up to your hat and away from your face. I'm thinking you would want to stay away from your camp fire when wearing your hat although a fire on your hat might also keep them away but I'll let someone else test that out and get back to me.
