I love alfresco dining as much as any romantic but even as I dream about cold roast chicken and seven-layer salad under a big tree, I also have to wonder: but what about the bugs? Mosquitos, flies, midges, gnats, no-see-ums and (classically) ants are bound to show up at most outdoor meals. So how do you deal with them?

* Fun fact: Bats have been known to eat up to 1000 insects in one hour!
