Lighting up a torch easily gets rid of the swarm. You will need to attack the swarm with the torch and this will make them leave you alone and you will find more time to escape before they come back.



This one is a bit risky, but make sure that you have a few bombs especially the Incendiary bomb to get rid of insect swarms, you have to make sure that the insects are in a swarm for you to be able to hit them with a bomb. It is quite a spectacle.

Tamed Animals

If you have a tamed animal then you are in luck and the tamed animal itself will start attacking the insect swarm. Survivor Evolved Ark Genesis new update made it increasingly efficient to beat insect swarm with tamed animals.

Bug Repellant
