Don’t Be Disturbed with Insect Bites at Summer Dining!
No matter how exciting and entertaining the idea of an outdoor activity is, the truth just comes out disappointing at times. There could be nothing far worse than being bitten by bugs and finding them on your dinner plate.
Alfresco dining does not necessarily mean cozy and tight, but just like any home there are countless gizmos, gadgets, and solutions that can withdraw the hassles in no time.
The Gizmo – one of the most familiar scents during summer season apart from the beach, sun creams, and grilled barbeques is definitely a bug repellant. These are sold in oils, sprays, and lotions which most of the time gives off an ugly scent. Furthermore, there is a possibility that you will feel a stinging sensation; quite cynical though because it is meant to prevent bugs from stinging you! Yet, there are currently new forms of insect repellants found in the market such as burners and candles. These gizmos naturally give off a scent that is unpleasant for insects making them leave the area as soon as possible without bothering you and your food. And yes, the smell of woody smoke and citronella will also help in getting rid of them. When you visit shops, you will find several attractive designs that can add up as decor while keeping the area free from insects. Additionally, these gizmos don’t harm the bugs so you can be at ease.
The Gadget – these vacuum bagged bug suckers and light zappers are more techy and certainly less insect friendly. Purchase these products from the store if you just want to be super sure of a bug-free dinner. There are also watches that use ultrasonic frequencies to hinder mosquitos from sucking your blood. With a lot of different choices, these are good for people who prefer a gadget insect repellant.
The Solution – these products include a retractable porch screen; this is great for people who are not into gadgets and gizmos. These screens are mesh-like and can be placed on any sheltered patio or porch letting you enjoy insect free dinner for they can’t get through the screen. These mesh-like screens can be removed if you wish to do so, and certainly does not ruin the view. This option is different from the two choices because it does not give off an ugly smell and does not hurt the bugs.
If you wish to have dinner outside with friends, expect that you will not be alone since bugs and insects will come too. It can add to the decor and nature feels of the place especially if you got a beetle or butterfly; but if not then assume already some bites and scratches everywhere. That is the reason why insect repellents exist, to keep you away from insect bites. So maybe you can keep an insect repellant within reach in case you need it. And wait, you might want to check on your glass before taking a gulp!
