This heatwave, I have to admit, feels fantastic. Winter stayed a little bit too long and spring has been cut short by humid temperatures that melt blacktop. What does this mean for our mosquito population? When the temperature hits 90° and then the rains open up with torrential storms, the little air hounds start strategizing over how they can ruin your day with annoying buzzes and worse itchy painful mosquito bites - or, more realistically, they breed more and more.
Don't let annoying sand flies ruin your family time at the beach. Don't let a swarm of nasty bugs cut your leisure time down. Take control and a healthy natural way. Think about using the power of essential oils, rather than man-made chemical compounds, to repel these annoying bugs.
If mosquitoes are a real problem where you live, eliminate stagnant water:
Fact: mosquitoes need water to pass through their life stages. Adult flying mozzies can rest in grass, shrubbery, or other foliage but they never breed there. They can evolve through the four stages of egg, larva, pupa, and adult in less than a week.
There are a variety of insect repellents out there. We would not claim to have the only one. Aromaflage, a botanical fragrance that doubles as an insect repellent, works great smells delicious and is actually a healthy option for you to put on to your body.
Go ahead, treat yourself. You deserve it.
To health, long life, and living naturally,
