Be warned that DEET doesn't do much for flies. Nor does permethrin sprayed clothing. (Been there, done that, hundreds of bites through permethrin sprayed base layer top.) In the absence of a suit of armor, nylon (woven, not knit) shirt and pants, long pants and sleeves and bug net are definitely needed.
