    True freedom is not the ability to do whatever one wants or as one pleases without restraint, rather, true freedom is the ability to do what one ought to do.

    Treating clothes, socks and shoes with permethrin worked wonders for me up on northern LOW this year.

    The flies are REALLY bad here. A few weeks ago I camped in Mobridge and they were bad there too. I went to Running, and got some Bronco stable spray, and some yardguard and insect spray. It helped a lot but on that Friday we stayed up most the night and kept a fire going. The wood we had was green cut trees from the storm over the 4th. One big green pine tree piece smoldered all day, and I think that helped too.

    no idea if these work on the biting flys but they work wonders on the House fly types.

    Thermacell does help a lot. But the problem is if there is a breeze it gets blown away easily so then is kinda pointless. It's good for calm evenings though for sure.
