Ahh...another great movie quote from one of my all time favs - The Mummy!
Well, it doesn't have to be bugs if you follow these tips:
Keep mosquitoes away with catnip - According to scientists at Iowa State University, catnip oil is 10 times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET, the traditional ingredient in bug spray. Look for all natural bug shields or essential oil blends that contain nepetalactone (pure catnip oil)
Spritz on the soap solution - Fill a spray bottle with one quart of water and a teaspoon of liquid soap and spray wherever you spot ants or roaches, then wipe dry. This erases the chemical trails they leave behind, stopping the rest of the colony from following, say pest management experts at the University of California.
Stop ants, fleas, or flies with these kitchen items - The National Safety Council suggests placing chili powder at the entrance to ants' holes to keep them away. And flies steer clear of basil - all you need is a sprig in a small bowl of water or a small basil plant near the window. Finally, to keep fleas off pets, talk to your vet about gradually adding brewer's yeast to their diet.
Try the sweet-spicy oil that will keep bugs from biting - Add a few drops of clove oil - a proven bug repellent - to your favorite shampoos and lotions; it will mask their naturally appetizing scent, making you much less appealing to hungry insects. Insects are attracted to sweat, so apply the lotion near underarms, behind ears and knees, and on feet to maximize protection.
