Be Bug-Free at Summer Dining!
No matter how exciting and entertaining the idea of an outdoor activity is, the truth just comes out disappointing at times. 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 close, but just like any home there are numerous gadgets, solutions, and gizmos that will clear the hassles in no time.
The Gizmo – a bug repellant is one of the most familiar scents during summer season apart from the beach, sun creams, and grilled barbeques. These are sold in oils, sprays, and lotions which most of the time gives off an ugly scent. Also, there is a possibility for the user to feel a stinging sensation; cynically speaking though because it is suppose to prevent insect bites and stings! Nonetheless, there are now other forms of insect repellents sold in the market like the burners and candles. These gizmos naturally give off a scent that is unpleasant for insects making them leave the area as soon as possible without bothering you and your food. But then of course, the smell of woody smoke and citronella add up as a bonus for getting rid of the bugs. When you go to the store, you will find different classy designs which can add up as a decor while making the area bug free. In addition, most of these gizmos don’t hurt the insects so you can be at peace.
The Gadget – these products which include vacuum bagged bug suckers and light zappers, are more techy and definitely less insect friendly. Purchase these products from the store if you just want to be super sure of a bug-free dinner. Additionally, there are watches that give out ultrasonic frequencies in getting rid of mosquitos. With a wide variety of options, these are great for people who prefer gadgets.
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 disturb the view and can be removed if you wish to do so on a day where there are a few insects only. This option is different from the two choices because it does not give off an ugly smell and does not hurt the bugs.
If you wish to have dinner outside with friends, expect that you will not be alone since bugs and insects will come too. These insects can add up as an appeal especially with beetles and butterflies, but if it is not, then you will most likely experience unwanted bites and scratches. That is the reason why insect repellents exist, to keep you away from insect bites. So it maybe great to keep insect repellant at home just in case you need them. And hey, you might want to check the food on your spoon before taking it in!
