Camping adventures are a great way to spend time with family and friends outdoors. However, outdoor adventures often include insects, particularly mosquitoes, ruining a great time. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Most of our camping bags look the same; they’re filled with staples like flashlights, clothes, and of course, varying insect repellants. However, there are a few home-remedies and other secrets to help keep the ubiquitous mosquitoes away.

• When you go on hikes or adventures, try to avoid wet and swampy areas, as they’re insect breeding grounds.

• You might get warm, but you’ll thank yourself if you stick to light colored clothing that covers your arms and legs.

• Consider what you eat the day before your trip. For example, Zinc, Garlic, and Vitamin B will stay in your skin, so that you become your own bug deterrent.

• Coconut soap and oil will deter most bugs, and certainly the ‘squitos.

You can also find a wide array of DIY bug repellants, like the Clove and Lime and Peppermint Oil on Pinterest. Moreover, if you do suffer from a pesky mosquito bite, you can actually use Orajel to numb the itchiness!
