Have a candle burning while eating. It will help keep the flies away. Not to mention it will add a romantic touch if you're camping without the kids.

Invest in a battery operated insect lamp trap. They're a better and more effective way to keep the bugs away when you sleep. It will also be safer since you don't put any chemicals on your body.

Hmmm....I kinda like the sound of the candle burning thing. I'll try that out on my next camping trip.

has anyone ever tried the insect repellent bracelets? they look like curly phone cords and sometimes comes with keyrings or hooks attached so you can put them on your belt loops. mosquitoes flock to me (and i'm super allergic on top of it) sprays and candles never work, so i was thinking about investing in the bracelet.

Re: Tips and Tricks - keeping bears away and other things 
But arent large animals attracted to the light? Thats my problem with candles, everyone can see you but you cant see themin the dark. I heard there are actual rocks you line around the campsite that deter certain animals from approaching your area, like an area marker. has anyone encountered these?
