BUGS-BE-GONE /Home Insect Repellents|
-Bounce Fabric Softener- very successful in LA (that’s Louisiana, not Lewiston/Auburn). Wipe on and go! Great for babies.
-Vitamin B-1, or in otherwise known as Thiamine Hydrochloride. 100 mg, once a day June to Oct.
-No Bananas! Something about banana oil as your body processes it, gets mosquitos thinking that you’re one sexy stud. Nix the `Nanas and they’ll be less interested.
-Vick’s Vapo-rub. Fantastic insect repellent.
-Plant marigolds around your yard/tent. The flowers give off a smell bugs don’t dig. So plant `em in the garden instead of using insecticides.
-Avon Skin-So-Soft Baby Oil, mixed 1/2 and 1/2 with alcohol. Lube up your hide, drink the rest of the alcohol to keep your insides clear of insects. It’s an old Marines’ recipe.
-Clear real vanilla. Pure vanilla, sold outta Mexico is a great repellent for `squitters and ticks.
-Get a pet frog or spider. They love to eat bugs.
-Good ol’ DEET.
