For mosquitoes I’ve had great luck with the eucalyptus oil as well as 100% deet. For no see ums, the classic preventative is Skin So Soft sold only by Avon. Stuff has worked for me. Learned it from old timer fishermen.

Do you think the no-see-um population will be fewer next season due to lack of nutrients?

Jay, that link wanted me to join NG. Interesting none the less. Thanks

I would like to be at the springs. Drinking is a secondary thought.

A Flipper Bloody Mary would probably add some deterrence.
Nothing else seems to work against them sometimes, so it'd be worth a try...

Annual no-see-ums alert! As the ground dries up they come in full force!
Got 50+ bites in 3 days despite spraying eucalyptus tree spray. Switching to deet did not help at all.

We got chewed on pretty good but nowhere near 100 bites. Bad up in Hunter Canyon too.

We were camped up by Wizard pool, but we got swarmed at the Bat Rock road junction and also (of course) in McElvoy. You just don't notice the damn things until it's too late, I guess that's why they are called no see ums!  I did put on the Deet, when I remembered...
