Camping with insects and mosquitoes

Camping time is upon us and means dealing with darn insects.There’s no question, insects and mosquitoes can make your camping trip a real bummer if you’re not careful. You don’t have to sit around and be eaten and stung alive, there are several precautions and preventative measures you can take to reduce your exposure and ensure a nice camping trip.

Don’t try camping in areas with tall grass and weeds where insects live.Insects and mosquitoes like to hang around areas of standing water.Set up camp away from water puddles, streams and lakes and ponds. Wearing bright colors can also make you a target for insects.Stick with dark clothing and cover up as much of your body as you can.

A good way to help protect yourself from insects and mosquitoes is to make the air real smokey from a burning campfire.Keeping your campsite clean from food and trash laying around also will help and is a good idea.Spray some outdoor insects and mosquitoes killer around your campsite, and make sure you also spray around your camping tent very good.

Insects are also attracted to light, so hang your lanterns and light’s away from the area you are going to sleep and sit. Insects and mosquitoes do not like smoke, so keep your smoking campfire going threw night will help keep them at bay while you sleep.Citronella buckets,and tiki torches work somewhat, you may want to try adding them to your campsite.Place them out of kid’s reach if you have young ones around they like to play and mess with them.
