Tip of the Day: If your yard is overrun with bugs, you’ll love this all-natural insect spray to repel mosquitoes, flies, bees, and other insects. In your blender, combine 1 small onion, 1 head of peeled garlic, 4 cups water, and 1½ tablespoons cayenne pepper. After blending, add a tablespoon liquid dish soap and strain into a spray bottle. Spray around your deck and anywhere else you’d like to repel bugs—it’s safe for kids and pets! Spray around your yard once a week to keep bugs away for good.
