We all enjoy summer, but not everything about warmer weather is great.
For starters, wouldn’t it be nice if there were fewer flying insects – and if you didn’t have to grab a can of chemical-laced “OFF!” just to make them go away?
Well, you can, and that’s the topic of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio. As herbalist and author Stephanie L. Tourles tells us, you don’t have to drench you and your family with DEET or other chemicals this summer. In fact, you may be able to use the all-natural ingredients already in your home to put together a few bug-repelling recipes – and they work!
Tourles is the author of “Naturally Bug-Free: 75 Nontoxic Recipes for Repelling Mosquitoes, Ticks, Fleas, Ants, Moths & Other Pesky Insects.”
She tells us:
- Which all-natural products you can use to repel mosquitoes.
- Why she never uses DEET – and urges others to do the same.
- How you can ward off ticks.
- What you should do if ants are crawling in your home.
Some of the recipes she shares with us work against almost any flying insect, so even if you don’t have mosquitoes, you should listen. Don’t miss this amazing episode if you hate pesky summer bugs!
