So what is the guide-recommended bug repellent that works on blackflies?

It looks so cozy! I can't wait to see it in person in just a few weeks. It also looks like you both used your previous experience well to set it up attractively!

The bug spray needs to have MGK 264 and MGK 326 in the active ingredient list. DEET doesn't work on flies. We sell the best product we have found. It is called "Buggspray" and comes in 1 oz and 4 oz sizes. Buggspray also contains DEET, which is important to deter mosquitoes.
