Could you tell me when black fly season gets over? Soon we will be going north. What do you recommend we use for spray? Or do you know of something that I can make up homemade.

It doesn't seem to me as if the black flies are near as bad as they used to be. There are some around, however, and can be a big nuisance depending where you are, the temperature, etc. There shouldn't be many left by the end of the month. Mosquitoes are also a nuisance.
As far as remedies, I don't have any. All I ever used to use was Old Woodsman's and I don't think that's even available any more. To me, the Off and Cutter's doesn't work very good but it's better than nothing. Some people use Avon Skin So Soft. Build a smudgy campfire and stand next to it. Sorry, I'm not too much help. Where will you be going?
