So it’s mid-summer and you had the best of intentions to do something about your mosquito control but life happens and for whatever reason you didn’t really do anything about the mosquitoes in your yard. Don’t worry even though it is definitely the best idea to start your mosquito control regiment early, it’s never too late to get relief from those pesky blood suckers.
The Best Defense
The best defense for mosquitoes while you’re enjoying the outdoors is going to be a good personal repellent. I know you are going to automatically think if those harsh chemical sprays or lotions but there is a wide variety of personal repellents out there today that don’t require application or chemicals! They range from traditional sprays to lanterns. While these products are great at repelling mosquitoes they do not actually kill the mosquitoes or reduce your mosquito population. They quickly and effectively create a “bug free” area so you can enjoy the outdoors! Most of the personal repellents products on the market now do not contain chemicals, most use Allethrin which a copy of a repellent that is naturally produced in chrysanthemum flowers and is safe for use around humans and pets.
