Hello –

Getting rid of deer flies is tough. You can try traps, but we have noticed limited success using them. Repellents work well, but who wants to slather them on every time you walk out the door. Your best bet may be to dress appropriately and cover exposed parts to reduce bites. We’ve found that Deerfly Patches work great when attached to the back of your hat. Attacking flies become trapped on the sticky surface. Just chuck them out when full.


Hope this helps!
