My favorite season is here and I hope you are enjoying the summer as much as I am. I am taking advantage of the season to dedicate my time and energy to all the things I love, to my favorite pastimes and discovering some new ones. I recently went on my first camping trip and was so excited about this new experience… However, as I shared my excitement with friends and family about my upcoming trip, I kept getting the same reaction: “but what about the bugs and mosquitoes”? I mean, spending time in nature surrounded by wildlife and looking up at the starry sky by a campfire all sounded magical to me, but the reactions I was getting made me feel like if I was going to enjoy this experience, I had to be prepared. Of course, if I was to prepare, I had to do it the natural way. And I am glad I did! I came home from a three-day camping trip with no more than three minor mosquito bites! Here are my favorite tips and tricks to help keep mosquitoes at bay.
