The bugs will still be there. Get something with DEET, at least 10%, unless you prefer organic alternatives

We purchased OFF Deep Woods Sportsmen Dry Formula Spray in a small can, about 4oz. I think. Worked very well for us and was not oily and had almost no odor at all. Got it at our local Wal Mart but I think it is available many other places.

Sprayed a little on before we started walking and were never bothered by the bugs. 25% Deet I think so it does the job.

You may be one of the lucky people....bugs don't like everyone!! so, don't fret about it yet.

The spray on Deet seems to be a good choice. Men that play golf, swear by the use of those sweet smelling dryer sheets like Bounce. They just rub one up and down the arms or tuck one into the band on thier caps.

Thanks everybody for the advice the reason for asking is that bugs seem to think I'm some kind of a banquet!!

I thought better to be safe than sorry

Thanks again
