WHETHER YOU ARE GOING ON A CARAVAN OR CAMPING TRIP OR ARE SIMPLY ENTERTAINING FAMILY AND FRIENDS OUTDOORS AT HOME, THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO KEEP THE MIDGES AWAY WITHOUT DREDGING EVERYONE WITH CHEMICAL SPRAYS
The bugs and midges will only get more plentiful now that summer is in full swing. We all know how much a hassle the Scottish midge can be especially after a period of heavy breeding. There are quite literally 10s of millions of the blighters hunting for flesh. ~ Mary Quinn March 2021
The Outdoor Life
Summer is an amazing time best spent outdoors in the sun enjoying many an activity for your family. And as enjoyable as such activities are, there is one downright annoyance we can all agree on. The midge (or the mosquitoes abroad). Midge bites are irritating, causing your skin to break out and rash.
But dousing on bug spray is not always the best option and not for children and family pets. Far too many potential toxins to worry about.
Have you thought about a chemical and allergy-free natural insect repellent solution?
Natural Insect Repellents
I will plug the Highland Midge lotion, of course. This is the market-leading repellent proven to be effective.
Insects are part of camping, hill walking and fishing, and any outdoor activity and sport. There is not a lot you can do to avoid them. You can reduce their annoyance with your behaviour and the right product, or do-it-yourself remedy.
Let’s look at a list of activities that most of us enjoy, first of all:
- camping and caravan traveling
- leisure sports, such as golf and fishing
- hill walking, hiking, woodland and forest
- gardening and home life, patio and porch
- indoor dining, late evening entertainment
Pretty much covers all things that an average family gets involved in. What can you do then that helps ease the suffering during the summer and autumn months? Without:
- busting the family budget
- is pet friendly
- is free from questionable ingredients
