If that is not enough, we put up a "bug Zapper." Yes, some people still use them. It finishes the job. We are not bothered with that thing going. Well, we are entertained by the constant poping as bugs fry.
I have been looking into a clothing product called "Buzz Off." My son and family wear that and report that it works very well. They have hats, shirts, and pants - long or short. A bit spendy but worth it. May get a set or two for each of us.

Does anyone use the "older" style bug zappers anymore, that were real popular in the 80's? Seems like those would keep the bugs at bay, and provide a nice blue light at the same time, hehe. 8)
