For some reason I have blood that has always attracted every biting bug imaginable. Did my college stint in Gunnison where I literally had to throw down my rod and run like a maniac because they were feeding on me like a school of piranhas. Happened many many times. I really don't like using deet because it makes me feel yucky and I don't like breathing burning petroleum distillates either. Anybody have any simple concoctions that actually help.?
