    I am wondering how everyone out there deals with mosquitos,biting flies etc... What seems to be the best defense? I use deep woods off. Is this about the best or is there something better? Thanks for any help.

    Deep woods off works well for me also. If you are looking for stronger stuff make sure you look at the percentage of <br>N,N Diethyl-meta toluamide (DEET) this is the stuff that keeps the mosquito's away (along with ticks and other pests).Deep Woods percentage is 23.80%

    We use that too. You practically have to take a shower in it every 10 minutes though

    Go to your Army-Navy Surplus store and buy old bottles of DEET, 100% concentrated. Mix in 2 tbsp of it with a 6oz spray bottle of Avon's Skin-So-Soft. Nothing better.<p>----------<br>Mike Reynolds,<br>GrassRoots Lawn Care, Florida
