Be Bug Free During a Dinner in Summer!
No matter how fun and entertaining the idea of an outdoor activity is, the truth can be at times dissatisfying. There could be nothing far worse than being bitten by bugs and finding them on your dinner plate.
Alfresco dining does not necessarily mean cozy and tight, but just like any home there are countless gizmos, gadgets, and solutions that can withdraw the hassles 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 sold in oils, sprays, and lotions which most of the time gives 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! Nonetheless, there are now other forms of insect repellents sold in the market like the 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 – includes vacuum bagged bug suckers and light zappers; these products are certainly less insect friendly and more techy. If you just want to ensure your dinner to be peaceful and free from bugs, you can purchase these gadgets from the store. There are also watches that use ultrasonic frequencies to hinder mosquitos from sucking your blood. 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 wish to have dinner outside with friends, expect that you will not be alone since bugs and insects will come too. It can add to the decor and nature feels of the place especially if you got a beetle or butterfly; but if not then assume already some bites and scratches everywhere. 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 hey, you might want to check the food on your spoon before taking it in!
