The natural way
Proper clothing is one of the best defenses against insects. A wide, brimmed hat can help protect the head and back of the neck. When wearing pants, it is recommended to tuck pants into socks and make sure that the wrists and ankles are covered. Stick to light-colored clothing, which is less attractive to insects. Use protective netting around sleeping or eating areas when camping to further discourage insects.
