No see um control
Myself and one of my children get demolished the moment we walk outside. The rest of the family is fine. Is there anything that works on these bastards besides firing up the thermocell every time we walk outside?

I hate having to spray both of us every time we step outside. Didn't know if there was a way to treat the yard.

What is a no see um? Is that a deer fly? Because deer flies are terrible where I live out in the middle of nowhere.

re: No see um control
I spray my yard every three weeks. Similar to you, some of the family is fine, but they light up my wife and some of the kids. My daughter and I are fine. Mostly mosquitos, but what I use, Bifen XTS, is also a broad spectrum and takes care of fleas, termites, etc. You can get a container for around $50 and apply with a garden sprayer. It is a concentrate and the one I bought has a measuring cup built in. You sort of tip it over and it fills the premeasured part and you put that in a garden sprayer and go to town. I used to pay for pro spraying but we were not getting the neighborhood discount anymore, so I started doing my own. You may need to apply more often for the little bugs, but it got rid of our flea problem and we rarely get a mosquito bite anymore.

Opposite in size. Many people have probably never ran into No See Ums, I'm not sure if they are just coastal or what.

But they are named after their size, they are small like fleas. You don't see see them. They are a major nuisance and usually there are like millions of them or none.

Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil Spray by AVON

Not joking. I keep a bottle in my fishing tackle box. Works on Gnats where DEET doesn't faze them.

Make you own it's cheap and it works!!
1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup vanilla (imitation is fine) and 1/3 cup listerine (the original kind). Mix all together in a spray bottle and spray liberally. I keep a bottle of this on my back porch.

I also use Bifen, although it's the water based IT version since I can use it indoors as well as outdoors. I should probably be more consistent with my spraying but as soon as I feel them start to bite I spray the yard and the no see ums are no longer a problem.
