HELP... I'm being eaten alive and need some bug spray!
I need a bug repellent. I bought a bottle of Jason's Quit Bugging Me, it's a natural formula. It smells funny, though and only works for about ten minutes after application. (Plus it's $6 for a tiny bottle.) Do any of you use a natural or at least less harmful bug repellent? We live in the country and the bug to human ration is about 198463650239475 to 1. Thanks in advance!
I know a lot of people who really like using Avon's skin so soft bath oil as a rub on anti bug serum. I never thought it was great but it is worth a shot.
I would go to amazon.com or drugstore.com and search natural bug repellent and read the reviews. You may find one with hundreds of accolades. I use both sites frequently to answer questions just like yours.
just hit me - if mosquitos are the bug that is the largest problem - some people have luck altering their "smell" using vitamin b supplements or garlic supplements. skeeters smell the CO2 from us and go from there.
Garlic or any citrus juice are natural repellents. If I'm going on a hunting or fishing trip, I start eating small amounts of fresh garlic a day or two before, then spray myself with some citrus while out there.
Repel makes a eucalyptus natural insect repellent, that contains deet.It is all natural, but low in deet, which is what has been shown to work. the product link is http://www.amazon.com/repel/dp/B004N59O … 4&sr=8 They also make a stronger one that I use and it does work, even in the woods the product code is http://repel-sportsmen-formula-repellent-HG-94079/dp/B000PGJ4LA/ref=sr_1_12?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1342654171&sr=1-12
1 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of dawn dish soap, and 2 tablespoons of salt spray it around the area outside and will kill ants but don't spray on plants you don't want to kill cause it double as weed killer... Good Luck.
Dude, I know the economy is bad, but it's ticks that are keeping me up at night right now. Shudder. Itch. Itch. Save yourself the nightmare. Go get you some bug spray and while you're at, let's discuss phobias.Mine are...
I have a nice old persian carpet. Recently I discovered something has been eating it???? I placed it outdoors for now - I guess I'm hoping the cool air makes the critter(s) want to leave and find somewhere...
