Does anyone have a good solution for getting rid of those pesky little black gnats. Deet isn't it.

Thanks,

Greg

My best luck was using Lavender oil that I purchased from Walmart. Pretty strong stuff, but seems to keep them at bay. It was actually a midge fly that had become a terrible menace in the midwest in early summer.

If it didn't deter the bugs you sure would smell pretty Laughing

I don't know Sean, that Lavender oil has a pretty tough smell.

Rick,

Yes I am. My partner and I encountered them more than once this trip.

I lived in Panama for 4 years , we had them there as well. We used every concoction possible to no avail. I would still try lavender oil.

Hey Greg, when I was a youngster working in the fields with my grandpa I was always complaining about the gnats flying around my face and he told me a sure fired way to get rid of them. Cut a hole in the seat of your pants. Tell me how it works on those Brazilian gnats next time.

My boat partner Bill Alexander has graciously volunteered to test different products to use for repelling black gnats like the ones we encountered on the Rio Negro. He has a similar bug in Florida where he lives. If you have any ideas that will work without making hair grow in weird places on his body or causing him to twitch uncontrollably. Please contact him thru the PBA message system.

Thanks in advance,

Greg Thompson
