RE: which spray or lotion


Deep Woods Off for me, too.  Man, I'd love to find something natural that
worked.  Much as I hate mosquitoes, it's the darn chiggers that drive me
absolutely nuts.  Living in a forested area as we do there's no way combat
that population.  Having to drown myself in Off almost makes me hesitate to
go out and work in the yard. Even our favorite ritual -  a quick stroll thru
the yard in late afternoon with a glass of wine - is an invite to the little
pests.

Much as I hate chemicals, Deep Woods OFF (Deet) is the only thing that keeps
me from getting carried off.  I also burn incense (Nag Champa mostly) when
I'm working out in the yard and they don't seem to like that much.
