Buzz Off Skeeter! 7 FREE Ways to Combat Mosquitoes

Ah, mosquito season– Nothing can put a damper on your outdoor adventures quite like the incessant buzzing and itchy bites from these tiny, but persistent, party crashers. But fear not! We've got your back with a roundup of free and fabulous ways to keep those bloodsuckers at bay. Say goodbye to mosquito mayhem and hello to the buzz-free zone!

Drain and Gain: One of the simplest and most effective ways to combat mosquitoes is to eliminate their breeding grounds. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so be a water warrior and check your surroundings for any stagnant water sources. Empty flowerpot saucers, buckets, and clogged gutters regularly. By doing so, you not only deprive mosquitoes of a nursery but also contribute to a cleaner and greener environment. It's the ultimate win-win – no standing water, no mosquito haven!

Dress to Impress (Mosquitoes): Ever heard the phrase "dress to impress"? Well, impress those mosquitoes with your fashion sense! Opt for light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. Not only will you look effortlessly chic, but mosquitoes are less likely to be attracted to lighter shades. It's the runway of mosquito prevention!

Citrusy Delight: Mosquitoes hate the zesty aroma of citrus fruits. Rubbing a slice of lemon or orange on your skin can act as a natural repellent. Plus, you'll smell as fresh as a summer breeze – talk about a win-win! **Be careful using citrus around animals** 

Fan-tastic Defense: Mosquitoes are lightweight fliers, and they struggle in a breeze. Harness the power of wind by setting up a fan in your outdoor space. Not only will it keep you cool, but it'll make it challenging for mosquitoes to land and feast on you. You'll be creating your own personal windstorm – mosquito style!

Plant Power: Mother Nature has provided us with an arsenal of mosquito-repelling plants. Add some pizzazz to your garden with marigolds, citronella, lavender, and mint. These green guardians not only beautify your space but also send mosquitoes packing.

Don't Work Up a Sweat: Mosquitoes are attracted to the scent of sweat but working out indoors and cleaning off that sweat–  you'll also make yourself less appealing to those buzzing invaders.

With these fun and free mosquito-fighting tips, you can supplement your SKEETER WEEPER fogger/mister system and be fully ready to reclaim your space from those winged nuisances. So go ahead, enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about becoming a mosquito buffet!
