Misquito repellant?

Misquito Repellant - Bugs, bugs, bugs! Say goodbye to those nasty, bothersome insects and bugs for the year. The cold weather is near. You know that this means they will all perish with that first frost. Or at least a great many of them will. I suppose a few will fly south and some will hide. The point is you won’t be needing misquito repellant and numerous other DEET products. As much as I hate spraying this gunk all over myself daily during the summer months, I hate the bug bites worse. It always makes me laugh the way folks gripe about arachnids. Spiders may sneak into your basement or closet on occasion, but at least they don’t attack you relentlessly.

So I was staying up at my brother’s hidden cabin last summer. He thinks it’s so cool because it was constructed completely by hand. Okay, who am I kidding That is one sweet little cabin. It has a loft and a wood stove. What else could a nature buff ask for Anyway, I made certain to bring a few cans of misquito repellant. I knew those little insects would be thick up there in the month of July. Heck, that’s probably when they’re the worst.

I definitely know that ticks are horrible in the summer months. I ended up with a deer tick stuck to my forearm last July. This cost me some bucks at the doctor’s office. Not to mention the 60 pills I had to take for Lyme disease. That was a pain. The best way to avoid instances like this is tick and misquito repellant. Wear plenty of this, regardless of how much you hate the smell. This is how you can warn them off and refrain from getting bitten. To make a long story short, I applied liberal amounts of misquito repellant to my daughter and myself. We were the only two who did not get bitten by mosquitoes and other bugs.

Wal-Mart is a convenient place to pick up some useful misquito repellant. Furthermore, I recommend a few other things if you’re headed up into the bush. Always carry a first-aid kit and a snake bite kit. Now you may snicker at the snake bite kit, but I assure you it comes in handy. I have used one of these on my daughter twice when she was stung by wasps. It literally draws the poison out and only leaves a red dot where the bite was. Pick up one the next time you’re shopping for misquito repellant or outdoor supplies.
