I don’t spend a ton of time outdoors in the summer (more of the indoorsy type), but I do enjoy a good campfire in the evening. The only downside of sitting around the fire in the evening is that is when the bugs seem to be the most active. I am always looking for new, effective ways to keep bugs away this summer. I did a little research and found 10 ways to DIY your own bug repellents. Hopefully these tutorials will help you enjoy the best of summer without the pesky bugs.
