Everyone ready for the Fourth of July festivities? Are you planning to celebrate outside with family and friends? Perhaps you have a picnic planned or are tempted to light the BBQ and party in the back yard? Whatever you do, enjoy yourselves. Eat nice food, play games, relax, laugh and most important of all, protect yourself from all those little pests that want to come and join in on the celebrations too.
That’s right, I’m talking about the uninvited guest Mr Mosquito! Here’s a great article with some tips at keeping him away from his dinner, so that you can enjoy yours.
Top 10 Tips to Keep Mosquitoes Away from your Next BBQ
Mosquitoes are highly visual, especially later in the afternoon, and their first mode of search for humans is through vision. That’s according to Jonathan Day, a professor of medical entomology at the University of Florida. Lab studies he’s conducted suggest that 20% of people are high attractor types. Find out what you can do to avoid an onslaught of mosquito bites at your next outdoor gathering.
I’ve tried the tip about putting herbs on the grill, and it does seem to work a little. It also smells wonderful too and adds a nice flavor to your BBQ chicken, which is an added bonus. You could go for the best option though, and that’s having a professional sort out your mosquito control.
Mosquitoes have no mercy, as you can see from that short video! The only way to prevent yourself from being bitten, is to take precautions. Don’t let the dude in the video ruin your enjoyment of this special holiday! Get that grill fired up, pour some drinks and celebrate in style. Enjoy your Fourth of July celebrations everyone. Make it a good one and pest free!
