How to Keep the Mosquitoes/Bugs away! Here’s a tip that we use every year while camping. I thought it was common, but after camping this past week I was shocked at the number of people who commented that they didn’t know about it, so here it is!
use a cardboard egg carton or coffee tray (the kind you get when you order a couple of coffees to-go) or a beverage holder from mcdonalds/burger king, etc.
light it on fire, then blow out the flame and let it smolder in a fire-safe location, such as in a grill, or firepit.
it works as a smudge to keep mosquitoes and other bugs far away! to make it even more effective, add a handful of dried sage leaves on top, not only does it smell wonderful, the bugs absolutely hate it.
