Try this to ward off sand fleas
Beautiful day today. Plunged my trowel into the soil and out swarmed the sand fleas! Yuck! But I noticed that they were hovering all around me but not attacking. Why? Then I remembered that I had rubbed some Neutrogena Hand Cream on my arms and face before heading out into the yard. I put some more on rubbing it around my hairline where they love to bite. Have just come in from a delighful day in the garden unbothered by the pesky critters. I replenished it at lunch time. This hand cream comes in tube form and is easily available at grocery stores. It is also a very nice cream to use on dry hands. Give it a try. Hope it works for you. Now...if it will discourage mosquitoes....fingers crossed!
