    I've been told that the mosquito is the State Bird in Florida...(can carry off a small dog or cat)

    So the gnats must be the hummingbird...

    This is true. I forgot about using Skin So Soft. It does work. Smells good too!

Tell me more. Do y'all have "skeeters" up there? Ours are so big they have rib cages and theTiger breed are so aggressive they have racing strips!
    We got skeeters.. the gnats don't bit but the skeeters will give you West Nile .... and I am to Skeeters like Sookie is to Vapers.. Deet works for skeeters no problem..

    Listerine works pretty good. put it in a small spray bottle, mist it over yourself about every half hour. Works pretty good.

    The best answer to gnats is a bug net hat.

    At least for me, the gnats only bother me if they're all up in my face. A bug netting hat keeps them off your face, and you can still see and breathe just fine.

    Plenty of different kinds on Ebay

    Yes, I think you may have something there. Not sure I have the kahoonas to wear one on the football field at the local high school.. Not something you see around here and could draw unwanted attention from the hoodlums that wander about.. However, out in the park and in the woods it could work without question.. I will take a look, anything in particular you use and perfer?

    I bought one in a baseball cap style so I can still wear my headphones. Works very well.

    But I suspect the ones that look like Vietnam Jungle hats would work even better.

    Try the vanilla extract I'm telling yea. Nothing including deet or skin so soft would deter biting gnats but vanilla extract works like magic.

    For gnats I use Tone's Double Strength Imitation Vanilla. I put it in a small spray bottle that fits in my pocket and mist my face, neck, arms, and behind the ears as needed. It works as good as anything I've tried. Also Absorbine Jr doesn't work too bad, but I find Vanilla the most pleasant to use. I've tried the expensive real vanilla extract and I think the cheap Tone's works better.

    Gnats hate the vanilla, but I found that they also hate Absorbine Jr. just as much. I got them bad here in Indiana and those are the go-to repellents that really work.

    A friend of mine who golfs says Bounce Dryer sheet keeps everything away.. one tucked in the shirt collar and one in the back pocket.. I think I may add the vanilla and see if I can stand the smells! Maybe I will start with just vanilla.. I HATE the smell of bounce.. Maybe I'm a Ganat!

    Thanks for all the ideas, if I find one that works here in PA I will post it as well!
