If this works it could be HUGE! I am constantly looking for good bug spray. I keep Vanilla on hand by the gallon for cleaning out coolers and wiping down my boat so I have plenty to try this (lets face it even the cleanest coolers start to get a little funk to them eventually). Just a question though......you just spray it on with a bottle and then rub it in? It almost seems like it wouldnt work with how good it smells but I do know that if you take down a teaspoon of it.....it will put hair on your chest. I will give this a shot this weekend and post my results. I will also have the 100% deet on hand aswell (just for backup). :)
You don't have to worry about gnats in the summer time, that's when the deer flies come out. Use high percent deet to keep them away or wear long pants. The deet works on the gnats too, (October thru May).
