Bug Bites Then Eat These

Several days before you take a camping or hiking trip into bug-filled territory, start eating garlic. Have a clove or two every day. As you sweat out the garlic odor, it repels many insects.

If your skin feels like it’s burning up from too much sun exposure or if itchy bug bites are driving you crazy, try using a little milk paste for soothing relief. Mix one part powdered milk with two parts water and add a pinch or two of salt. Dab it on the burn or bite.

For relief from the itching of mosquito and chigger bites, soak the area in salt water, then apply a coating of vegetable oil.

But unfortunately, that still water is a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Floating a few tablespoons of vegetable or olive oil on the surface of the water will help keep mosquitoes from using the water.

Rubbing a slice of onion over your skin can be a good way to keep away mosquitoes and other biting insects.

By rubbing fresh orange peel or lemon peels over your exposed skin , It’s said that mosquitoes and gnats are totally repulsed by either scent.

Approximately three days before you leave, start taking 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar three times a day. Continue using the vinegar ,you just might return home without a bite. Moisten a cloth or cotton ball with white vinegar and rub it over your exposed skin.

Dilute 1 tablespoon extract with 1 cup water and wipe the mixture on your exposed skin to discourage mosquitoes, black flies, and ticks.
