natural bug bite remedies I don't know if these will "actually" work BUT living in the Mid-West and seeing how Mosquitos LOVE me I'm for sure going to try these out!!!!
Beautiful idea but $32 on etsy + $10 s/h. I know that I can make this for about 2-3 bucks with a piece of barn wood, leftover kids blocks and some hooks. I don't care that much for the black blocks think that I would distress them in their natural colors
Flies and summer seem to go hand-in-hand. You just can’t have one without the other. Although there are many different sprays on the market to get rid of flies, not everyone wants chemicals sprayed around their homes.
Homemade Mosquito Repellent - just 3 ingredients! Easy to make and smells great! 10 - 15 drops Lavender oil, 4 tsp. Lemon Juice, and 3 tsp. vanilla extract. (can add 10 - 15 drops citronella oil or tea tree oil also) put in spray bottle and fill the rest of the way with water.
Pinner says: Swarms of Mosquitoes on my patio led me to an old home remedy - Did you know that chopped up garlic makes mosquitoes disappear? I buy minced, dried garlic at local Fiesta grocery stores and sprinkle it around on my patio. I have to stand back as I am using it - mosquitoes will literally swarm out of your plants and bushes to get away from the smell. Works like a charm!!
Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use as a non-toxic and yummy smelling "green" cleaner. I love using vinegar to clean with but have always wondered how to make it smell better - can't wait to do this!
