Preventing Pests From Eating You Alive


We the summer months finally here, we’ve all grown accustomed to spending our days outdoors enjoying the sunshine, but here’s something you might not have considered: protecting your skin from the pests that will be out in droves. Mosquitoes, ticks, and other pests can all leave you with itchy, red bites that can make uncomfortable days – and a much cozier night spent scratching rather than sleeping.

But there are ways to help keep the pests from eating you alive. Choose the right clothing for the task. You should opt for long pants, long sleeves, and socks – this helps keep them from reaching your skin in the first place. Wear bright colors, as well – most pests tend to be attracted to dark colors, so you’ll have more of a chance of avoiding them if you opt for something light and airy.

Once you’ve found the clothing to protect you, it’s time to tackle the other element: bug spray. Natural, chemical-free bug sprays made from essential oils are a great way to go, as you can be assured they won’t hurt the environment or your family’s health. Make sure to reseal the container after each application and keep it away from children and pets.

These tips are simple enough, but they’re an easy and effective way to help keep pests from sending you to bed itchy and miserable. So, as the summer months approach, take the necessary steps to protect yourself. With the right precautions and a bit of knowledge, you can walk out the door pest free every day. #Summer #Sunshine #Protection #BugSpray #EssentialOils #Outdoors
