Any product with citronella (hundreds of them) will deter most biting insects, I have tried the boots, long socks, bottoms tucked in, long sleves, and no bare bits and still been bitten on my legs or ankles. Now I just douse myself in repelant.

Rosemary is a great insect repelant. Putting lemon juice on the skin in the sun may cause excesive burning. If you use it on your hair and go out in the sun it will lighten. I rub the inside edge of my bike helmet lining with rosemary keeps bugs away. Boil some water...and infuse some sprigs in it for 20 mins or so. Strain it...leave to cool and put it in a spray bottle. It works well.
