    Boy I'm so glad you mentioned buffalo gnats and reminded me of one more better reason to live in the mountains instead of Oklahoma. They're an aggravation and some people have more of a reaction to them than others. We were working as OK State Park Rangers years ago, and outdoors everyday. From our experience I can tell you, that Avon Skin so Soft don't work. Drops of vanilla just made us walk around smelling like big cookies. Horsemint leaves rubbed on their bite would offer a little relief, but that was after the fact. The good thing, when the weather gets hotter and drier, about when they start harvesting wheat in Oklahoma, they go away.

    Just like Texas in 1880.

    That said there is a super easy and totally effective cure..... Pure vanilla extract. Just a drop on each side of your neck and one on each wrist will keep them off.

    You are welcome in advance. Steve
    I tried this trick today in the south Georgia heat and humidity. I put a dab below each ear and then wiped my finger across my forehead and walked around my 1 acre backyard for about 45 minutes. I did not have the first gnat come near me the entire time! But, when my wife got home I had to convince her there hadn't been any women around!

    Just make sure your head net is actually gnat proof. Was camping in the Everglades this past March and had ordered new "gnat-proof" head nets from Amazon. Hopped out of the hammock before dark and immediately had a head net full of gnats.
