Be Bug-Free at Summer Dining!
No matter how exciting and fun the idea of an outdoor activity is, the truth may sometimes disappoint you. There could be nothing more worse than becoming the meal of some bugs and even finding them munching on the food on your 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 – it is undeniable that apart from the beach, sun creams, and grilled barbeques, one of the most familiar scent during summer season is a bug repellant. These are up for grabs in oils, sprays, and lotion which will most likely give off an ugly scent. Also, there is a possibility for the user to feel a stinging sensation; cynically speaking though because it is suppose to prevent insect bites and stings! Yet, there are currently new forms of insect repellants found in the market such as burners and candles. What these gizmos give off is a fragrance that annoys the insects which will make them evacuate the area without touching your precious food. But of course, woody smoke and citronella are bonuses to getting rid of them. When you go for a store visit, you will find different fashionable designs which you can use as decor while keeping insects away. 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 wide range of options, these are ideal for people who are into gadgets.
The Solution – these products include a retractable porch screen; this is great for people who are not into gadgets and gizmos. These screens can be placed on any sheltered patio and porch where you will be able to have a peaceful dinner for the insects can’t go through the screen. These mesh-like screens don’t interfere with the view and can be removed during the times where only a few insects are present. 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 are planning to have dinner outdoors, expect that insects will also come as if invited. These insects can add up as an appeal especially with beetles and butterflies, but if it is not, then you will most likely experience unwanted bites and scratches. That is why insect repellents were made, to keep you away from insect bites. So you can maybe at least keep one insect repellant at home in case you need it. And wait, you might want to check on your plate before digging in!
