Default Bug Spray

Just wandering what you guys consider to be a good repellent. I spend alot of time at our local youth ball fields and the friggin gnats just make it almost unbearable. A parent of one of the opposing teams had some stuff in a little can that was a pump spray and let me use some, and it worked better than anything I've ever used. I just can't seem to find out what it was.

ha ha yes, probably Avon stuff. I always held my hat up over my head at arms length so they'd go up there.

We use stuff with 40% DEET. I'm told that original Listerine (the gold color stuff) in a spray bottle works really good too.

Avon SSS here too.

Don't feel any harm in covering the kids with it too. And it WORKS, best of all!
