 And im sure i spelled it wrong ....

What propellent works ? not something thats a lotion or a spray. i honestly dont want to keep rubbing myself or my kids with something. But what can we put on our deck that really works at keeping them away ? like a candle or something .... This is rediculis i was just outside not even 5 minutes and i have over 15 bites (yes i counted) 10 are in the same area, my daughter on the other hand i dont think she got any lol ... What is it about Prego people or ME that they love so much gee wis !

Anywho any advice or anything would be wonderful THANK YOU !

There are organic repellents out there.  I use TheraNeem Herbal Outdoor Spray and I have been using it on my baby since he was 4 months old.  We live in Florida...believe me it works!  Plus it is organic, nothing nasty in it!

This, and I know at Home Depot and maybe Target or Dicks they have little clip on things that you put a cartridge in and it has a little fan.. not sure how well they work. Oh, they also have lanterns you can get with refill things, I know they really work.

my hubby just sprayed the yard with Malathion (found it at Lowes), seemed to help alot in a day or so!  it's what they spray our town with.  there is also a fogger you can buy, costs 70-80.00 though.  it's supposed to be great!  good luck, i understand your pain!
