Picaridin seems to work as well as DEET without the plastic-melting and smell.

I was at the Springs week before last.  Yes, the "noseeums" were out in force (around dusk), if I might say.  I would suggest that you take some "deet" with you.
The little beggers seem to be repelled by it.  I forgot to put some on my lower legs and got several bites/welts. Also take some "Campho-phenique"; good for
the itch and healing process.
