Ankle-biters, aka stable flies are fierce, bring this

A dozen flies land on Cork's back, seconds after walking outside. He has been forced to spend most of his time indoors
We have had several beautiful, warm-to-hot days and this seems to have hatched-out every ankle biter fly at once. They are so bad at times that they even move up your body to your arms. Although the blue-top Deepwoods Sportsman Off has an effect, the Repel cream with 40% DEET keeps them completely away for 6-8 hours. The Repel is about the only thing you can use when the flies are this bad and still wear shorts and sandals.
Experience has shown that a change in the wind direction or cooler temperatures can drastically reduce the fly population.
