The sun is setting and the sand flies are eating you alive, how can you keep them away?

Answer Get a fire going.

A fire is pretty good at keeping the majority of insects away. It's not the flames or the heat that bothers them, it's the smoke. Burn wood with a bit of moisture or throw some green vegetation onto the fire every now and then. Simple but very effective.
