I wrote a whole article on dealing with Lake Michigan's biting flies - commonly called ankle flies. Now I only need to write one word: PICARADIN. Two more words.... It works. Sawyer makes the product I use and I get it from Amazon.
Of course you can continue to use DEET, gin, dryer sheets or other treatments. I used to wear thick socks and long pants even in the summer. No more.
Get some Picaradin!
