4. Jeepers!

That's awful. Sorry, I've no advice.

I've used spray Permethrin on my clothing before going out at night. (Used drug store cans & ordered a big bottle of concentrate to kill mites & fleas in our lawn. I'm sure you know about this.)

However, here on the eastcoast we're seeing less and less insects this year & a decrease in bird populations. Now, we can walk every night without being bitten by mosquitoes. And we've not seen a housefly all summer.
And I've been getting emails like this (which sure doesn't apply to your part of the country)...
The insect apocalypse: ‘Our world will grind to a halt without them’: Insects have declined by 75% in the past 50 years – and the consequences may soon be catastrophic.

It's not decreasing the fly populations where you are.

Good luck, in2herbs. Wish I had some advice.
