Why not just cut in a window across from the mandoor? Put screen over it and add a screen door to the existing mandoor. Flying critter problem solved. A couple fans at the door/window will get the air flowing.

I find spiders easy enough to kill (widows) when I see them. The rest I usually let be. I'm allergic to bees so flying critters get the brake fluid/hornet spray/etc when the chance comes. For truly Darwin moments, my red Ryder bb gun is the schnizzle for knocking down the paper wasps nests from high up under the eaves. Single flyers are more fun though.

ALso, keep the weeds/lawn/plants away from the foundation of the shop. They sell mini (propane) flame-throwers for killing weeds and such. This would do wonders for spreading a "scorched-earth" perimiter around the shop. And it's legal,,,,,unless you burn down the structure, or the neighbor's fence, or start a brush fire. The fire department gets enough practice already.

WARNING: While I completely agree with this method, be very aware of what your burning. Breathing poison ivy or oak is a VERY bad idea, don't ask me how I know.

While I've never done this, I know people who have, and judging from their experiences, I concur.

Hey was that the Budweiser lizard?

When you think about it, God has to be the best inventor of all time. He took a rib from Adam and made a loudspeaker.
