Re: which spray or lotion


O.K. I have only tried it once, and it seemed to work pretty good for me...and
I have friends that SWEAR by it...but it you put Listerine (or generic version
there of...) in a spray bottle and spray the area AROUND where you are
working...it keeps the mosquitos (not flies) away.  AND..at the feed store I
buy this citronella type fly spray that I use on my horses and llamas to keep
the wee-beasties off...and it works GREAT.  I spray their stalls with it and
it really works for HOURS.  And its safe....

My real
test was with biting flies working around cattle....maybe it just 
doesn't
work as good with mosquitoes.  I guess deet is going to be your 
friend.
I
hate that ... I know you would rather not use any chemicals.
