Get Rid of Those Pesky Mosquitoes!

We had a ton of rain in our neck of the woods this spring and all that moisture has created a bigger mosquito problem this year than normal. So when I discovered that a body spray I created to help cool down in the heat also repels these little bloodsuckers I was super excited to share the recipe with you again!

If you try this body spray recipe as a mosquito repellant, please leave a comment and let me know how it worked for you! Note: You’ll need to reapply the spray often if you are sweating because the sweat washes the essential oils away and then the mosquitoes will start circling for the kill again!

In addition, make sure you don’t have small pools of stagnant water where mosquitoes can lay their eggs and keep the tall grass and weeds trimmed so they don’t have hiding places. Please don’t use the bug zappers because they kill more good bugs than bad bugs. Encourage bats and birds to eat the pests instead!

Are you having a problem with mosquitoes this summer? How do you keep them at bay and still get your homesteading projects done? Share your tips in the comments!
