Keeping Bugs Out with Windows Open?

Good Questions

Q: We live in the Hollywood Hills and have one-year-old twins. With the weather so nice, I'm keeping the doors open and the kids are running in and out of the house — well, crawling. The thing is, since we live in the hills we get tons of little flying bugs which are annoying. Are there any indoor candles or things I can use to distract them? Safe for a family?
