Every year, right around now, the deerflies start to come out. Zelda is a sensitive soul. She really hates bugs.
The problem is, none of the expensive and deadly concoctions appears to repel the bugs. Minutes, maybe even seconds, after I covered every inch of her body, the bugs were back.
So far, I’ve tried Ultra Shield, Repel Max (with the maximum amount of DEET) and two types of tick repellants. I should start spraying those on me as I’ve already removed two embedded ticks from my back and am currently being treated for Lyme.
I’m going to break out Zelda and Freedom’s fly sheets tomorrow. I think they are probably the best option. But please, someone tell me about a fly spray that actually works!
