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 far worse than being bitten by bugs and finding them on your dinner 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 – 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. 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 are designed to give off a scent that insects don’t like making them evacuate the area as soon as possible without bothering you. But then of course, the smell of woody smoke and citronella add up as a bonus for getting rid of the bugs. 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. If you just want to ensure your dinner to be peaceful and free from bugs, you can purchase these gadgets from the store. Plus, you will even find watches that give out ultrasonic frequencies in stopping mosquitoes from landing onto your skin. With a lot of different choices, these are good for people who prefer a gadget insect repellant.
The Solution – includes retractable porch screens; ideal for those who are not into gadgets and gizmos. These screens are ideal for sheltered patios or porches where you can enjoy dinner without having the problem of stinging insects. 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 other two in terms of its smell and insect friendliness.
If you are planning to have dinner outdoors, expect that insects will also come as if invited. These insects can add up as an attraction especially if it is a beetle or butterfly; however if it is not then you will surely experience undesirable 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 wait, you might want to check on your plate before digging in!
