One more tip I have for summer firepits/bonfires is to throw a stick of sage into the fire. The sage scented smoke that the fire will emit keeps mosquitos and other annoying bugs at bay for the entire area. We love it. Usually the sage stick (show below) that we throw into our fire is enough, no need for bug sprays.
This looks good!!! Baked Apples--Great snack for camping! From "Back to the Basics": Cut apple in halve. Hollow out the core and fill with brown sugar and a pat of butter. You may even add a little Cinnamon to it. Wrap in tin foil and place in the coals!
With this completely chemical free bug spray you can eliminate ants, flies, spiders and rodents around your home. Choose from essential oils with insect repellent effect such as: Citronella, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lavender or Mint.
