Nothing will ruin our outside time faster than biting bugs and while I hate resorting to chemicals, this seems to be the only thing that works in severe situations! We have found these little devices to be our #1 best defense against no-see-ums and really bad mosquitoes. They work on just about every pest and at least we don’t have to douse ourselves in deet. We have used these for years and absolutely love them!
However, when it’s not too bad, we use an all natural mix of essential oils in water. We like a mix of lemongrass and rosemary.
