My household at all times has grand targets of getting out to the mountains as soon as a month for a pair nights of tent tenting from Might by means of October. Tenting within the shoulder months typically means chilly temperatures and rain, which we’ve gotten good at coping with. Mosquito season, nevertheless, generally is a little extra daunting. A couple of summers in the past, we have been tenting at a Southern Oregon lake with mates who had young children. The mosquitos have been SO vicious, notably for the kiddos, and I spent the entire time kicking myself for not having made a batch of natural mosquito repellent beforehand. Our mates had some over-the-counter pure spray, however it was passing-useless and none of us wished to douse the kids in a poisonous DEET-based repellent. I vowed by no means to be caught unexpectedly once more. Now this pure spray is a must have for tenting and some other exercise that places us near water and mosquitos.
