Now that the warm, beautiful weather is finally here, many of the annoying bugs and insects are coming out of the woodwork in droves. Summer season is bug season and that means mosquitoes, gnats, flies, ants, wasps, and thousands of other different types of bugs are active. They can quickly ruin a fun outdoor picnic or turn a BBQ into a disaster by swarming and biting guests, getting into the food, and just making life miserable in general!

Many people turn to insect repellents, bug zappers, and fly swatters but all of these devices have a very limited effect. Lots of bugs manage to fly right by and avoid them all together. However, there is an alternative way to get rid of pesky unwanted insects that’s much more simple and affordable than any of the aforementioned tactics.

The following method that’s covered in this video offers you a completely safe and environmentally friendly way to create a no-fly, bug free zone in a matter of seconds. All that it requires is the following items:

-1 clear plastic sandwich bag
-a few shiny pennies
-2.5 cups of water
-1 teaspoon of table salt
-2-4 squirts of lime juice

Start by mixing together the water, salt, and lime juice in a bowl. Take the plastic sandwich bag and fill it three quarters of the way with this solution before dropping in a few pennies. Seal the bag up securely and hang it near wherever you plan on spending time.

You can nail the bag to a fence, pin it up in the doorway, hang it from a tree, basically whatever you do will work fine so long as the baggy is elevated and able to catch the light. Also, the lime juice and salt are there to ensure that the pennies stay extra shiny, so if you don’t have any on hand you can skip them but make sure you use the shiniest pennies you can find!

This simple bug deterrent has been used for years by people who know about it because it works really well. The strung up pennies submerged in water actively reflect light which creates prisms in the air that flicker and move all about.

While people are unable to see these prisms, flies and other bugs can see them and steer clear of the light. It’s believed that the reflected light scares them off by making it hard for them to focus.

They’re also tricked into thinking that there’s water in the air and thus avoid the area around the bag to keep from getting wet and going blind. In addition to pennies in a bag, old CDs hung from a tree also work just as well since they too reflect light.

One last thing worth mentioning is always remember to take down the plastic bags and dispose them properly when you’re all done using them. You don’t want to litter and the bags can be dangerous, even fatal, to animals who come across them and mistakenly ingest them thinking that they’re food!

In the end, the plastic bag and pennies work to effectively create an invisible barrier that no flying bugs are willing to cross. Try it the next time you have a BBQ or party outside and feel free to share this helpful tip and pass it along!

If You Mix These 4 Natural Ingredients To Make THIS You Will Get Rid Of All Mosquitoes For Good!

There is so much that is wonderful about spring and summer…just the sheer freedom of being outdoors, unencumbered by heavy clothing, swimming, barbecuing, picnics…I could go on and on.  Not only do we create new happy summer memories, but so many of the highlights of our lives come back to us when we think about summers past.

I myself, love gardening and sunshine, but my husband loves sitting outside on a summer night under the stars.  Sounds good, right?  Unfortunately for both of us, I am one of those people whom mosquitoes are attracted to, and they completely leave him alone.  I’ve tried citronella candles, and ultimately submit to lathering myself in chemicals that repel them, but doing that seriously BUGS ME!  I don’t like putting chemicals on my skin, so it kind of takes the joy out of the peaceful summer night under the stars.

When I came upon this really easy DIY for an all-natural mason jar bug repellant, I was intrigued because it contained all the scents I love, and claimed that for some reason this combination is abhorrent to mosquitoes.  Since I had all the ingredients in my house already: MASON JARS, LEMONS, LIMES, WATER, FRESH ROSEMARY, LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL and TEA CANDLES…I figured it was worth giving it a try.  I made three of them and sat outside in the evening several times this week and it worked!!!

Watch the video below, for exact instructions on how to make these.  Not only do they look lovely, but the scent they give off is pure freshness, and the bugs detest the smell!  This works great for any summertime outdoor activity where you are “Bugged by Bugs”, and it is a great natural way to make outdoor living a pleasure.

More people are heading outside now that the weather is getting warmer, sunnier, and more pleasant. Springtime means that the birds are returning to their summer homes and the bugs are starting to come out in full force. Unfortunately, this also means that pesky mosquitoes are coming out in droves and they’re all looking for fresh blood. The way they swarm and buzz in enough to drive anyone crazy and their bites are just downright itchy and uncomfortable.

However, the worst thing they care capable of is spreading dangerous, sometimes even deadly, diseases. One bite is all it takes for a mosquito to transfer a virus to a person and many people end up with severe infections like malaria, Zika Virus, Chikunhunya, West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Yellow Fever, and more.

While chemical sprays and store bought repellents do work to a degree, they usually smell disgusting and are packed full of harsh, toxic ingredients that can irritate skin and cause difficulty breathing. A good rule of thumb is that you should try to avoid spraying DEET on yourself if possible, and fortunately there is a natural alternative you can use to keep mosquitoes away. It’s simple, gentle, and smells good, plus it’s effective and you can make it right in your own kitchen.

The simple 3 ingredient recipe for the homemade repellent was shared by YouTube channel HouseholdHacker in the accompanying video. Their tutorial on how to make it is informative and easy to follow so be sure to check it out. Here is a list of what you’ll need and steps on how to make it:

Ingredients:
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 30 drops of lemon-eucalyptus oil
– 4 ounces of either rubbing alcohol, witch hazel, or vodka

Instructions:
1. Measure out each ingredient
2. Mix them all together
3. Transfer into a small spray bottle
4. Spray on yourself before going outside and reapply every 4 hours as needed

This non-toxic formula can be sprayed anywhere on your body, skin, on clothing, and even in hair. For that last ingredient listed above, witch hazel is preferred because it’s the least harsh on skin and won’t dry it out like alcohol-based ones tend to. Mix up a few bottle of the repellent so you can toss one in your car or bag, that way you’ll always be safe and covered wherever you go.

In the end, this natural spray will definitely make summer much more enjoyable. You won’t have to constantly be slapping at mosquitoes or itching bites, and that makes it worthy of your time and attention so try it out and see how you like it!
