Burt's Bees natural repellent.

We also have the Off stuff, but I don't like to use it.

I've heard the opposite, that it doesn't.  That you have to use something like Off.  But I am thinking that Natesmom1228 has found that it does work, so maybe it would be worth trying.

well, we usually try to avoid going out when thgey are bad, but that is only about an hour a day :P so, we just try to not have things that they are attracted to: standing water/damp areas, we have screens on our windows and we use fans near the beds.
