Please tell me there is something I can use to keep gnats from chewing on me when I work in yard. I really can’t even sit on the deck-they are all over me. HELP & thanks
Hennepin County Minnesota
Several kinds of small, biting, fly-like insects commonly called gnats or biting midges are active at this time of year. In southern Minnesota black flies are among the most prevalent.
