    Anyone have a secret recipe to keep gnats off? I know that they do not bite some people but they eat me up sometimes.

    I have heard that putting a dryer sheet (fabric softner) in your pocket will keep gnats and mosquitoes away, although I use "off active" and it works fine.

    Seems like the gnats are super thick this year. They dont bother me as much as mosquitoes or ticks but they all suck imo.

    Advantage!!! Put it on the back of your neck where you can't lick it off.
    Works GREAT :smile2:

    Gosh
    What a wealth of useful info....:eek:oooh:

    Ok one of the reasons I ask was that I read something that a Louisiana fishing guide posted and he uses Victory secrects amber romance. He says it keeps them away. Just wondered if anyone else ever tryed it.

    The only problem is that I met some of this bunch at Melvern and I am not so sure I would want to take the chance of running into some of these characters out in the boonies smelling like a French hooker.:dribble:YukYuk

    It might have something to do with that bullseye 'tat on the back of your neck. Or it could be because you can take it as well as you dish it out.

    They have been bad this year, been doing a little fogging trying to knock them back a little.
