Biting flies


Recommended Posts

Reminds me of an old joke...

The US spent million dollars to invent a pen that would write in space..

The Russians used a pencil..

I just wear long pants...

Using sprays or lotions etc and guess what...

It's on your lures, in your eyes, it's all over cuz ppl cannot forward think...

I heard those flies have square teeth also... That's why their bite is so painful..

Best I have found:

More effective at repelling biting flies than DEET, Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent Spray with 20 Percent Picaridin is great for applying to skin as well clothing, outdoor gear, and more. Safe to use on the whole family, Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent Spray offers effective protection against common disease carrying nuisances like mosquitoes and ticks. Additionally, Picaridin is effective at repelling biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies. This long-lasting topical spray with 20 percent Picaridin is effective for up to 12 hours against mosquitoes and ticks, and for up to 8 hours against biting flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies. The non-greasy spray has a pleasant low odor that evaporates when dry, and it won't damage plastics of synthetic coatings. Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent Spray is safe for use on clothing, backpacks, synthetic fabrics, watches, sunglasses, and more.

Permethrins (Livestock insecticide) 2/3 oz. to 1 Gal H20... 

Ok to use if you’re a horse or a cow. Not for use in humans. Powerful carcinogen. Read the label

Salt gun is more fun than a fly swatter, doesn't repel but you can shoot them off your buddies legs. Multi kills and in flight shots get bonus points

I never wear shorts and a t shirt on the boat. Its like a football player forgetting his pads and helmet. It’s just not worth it. Invest in some real fishing clothing— pants, long sleeve hoody.. There’s plenty of stuff out there that is breathable and comfortable. It has become my standard gear no matter what conditions.

I watched my buddy a few days ago get eaten alive… he was desperate for chemicals that don’t work while I didn’t even get a single bite with nothing but the proper clothing…
