2. Steer Clear of Mosquito Bites with Garlic and Catnip
Mosquitoes may not present a threat to your food, but they could end up causing you to get extremely ill. This makes learning how to avoid them very important, especially if an emergency situation happens.
Catnip is good at repelling mosquitoes, and you can also make a simple home bug spray to keep these pests from sucking on your blood. Take five parts water and one part garlic and mix them together into a spray bottle. Make sure that you shake the bottle well before you begin spraying the mixture. Apply it to your exposed skin to create an effective mosquito repellent that should last at least five hours.
