I thought there were a lot more mosquito's this year, I got bitten 12 times 2 days ago in the middle of the day (shady, dry area). You do mean mosquito's don't you? Gnat's are anything that flies really!! Some are troublesome, some not so guessing here that it's mozzies you're trying to keep away!
Yes, citronella is good, so's burning lavender oil or lemon eucalyptus. You could use a repellant, the one with DEET, or try putting on some products containing tea tree oil on exposed parts. Wearing sleeves is good to - but not a cardigan full of holes like I did.. I've been reading a lot into this since I became lunch 2 days ago!!
