Buggies in my areaway
 
As the title says, I've got bugs ( skeeters and flies specifically ), that like to hang out and party in my areaway.

It's on the shady side of the house, essentially gets no direct sunlight, and the stairs run parallel to the house.

No standing water and no carrion/food/trash/etc. that would attract or allow the breeding of skeeters or flies.

Is there anything I can spray or put down to shoo the uninvited guests away? I look quite funny ( foolish ) flapping my arms like a mad man whenever I go in and out of the door attempting to keep them out of the house, LOL.

Not many things more annoying than trying to sleep and hearing a skeeter buzzing around in the dark.

Is there any dense shrubs in that shaded area? Mosquitoes love to stay within those in daylight hours especially during windy conditions.
