Be Bug-Free at Summer Dining!
No matter how fun and entertaining the idea of an outdoor activity is, the truth can be at times dissatisfying. 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 will not necessarily mean comfortable and tight, but just like any home there are a lot of solutions, gizmos and gadgets that will remove your uneasiness in no time.
The Gizmo – a bug repellant is one of the most familiar scents during summer season apart from the beach, sun creams, and grilled barbeques. These are up for grabs in oils, sprays, and lotion which will most likely give 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! Nevertheless, there are already other forms of repellant out 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. 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. Also, most of these gizmos don’t hurt the insects so you can be at peace.
The Gadget – these products which include vacuum bagged bug suckers and light zappers, are more techy and definitely less insect friendly. If you just want to ensure your dinner to be peaceful and free from bugs, you can purchase these gadgets from the store. Additionally, there are watches that give out ultrasonic frequencies in getting rid of mosquitos. With a wide variety of options, these are great for people who prefer gadgets.
The Solution – for a person who is not into gadgets and gizmos, purchasing a retractable porch screen is advisable. 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 wish to have dinner outside with friends, expect that you will not be alone since bugs and insects will come too. 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 the reason why insect repellents exist, 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 hey, you might want to check the food on your spoon before taking it in!
