Is it me or are mosquitoes one of the things that make you think twice about being outdoors? I love camping and have done quite my share of it. It all started when I was very little. For me, being outdoors was a matter of survival. Even though we really didn’t live around big or dangerous animals, I always loved to think so. One of the very first things that I bought for my camping trips was a special knife.
You know those knives that seem to have a hidden compartment when you can store all sorts of things? Like for instance, there is this string that you can use to cut wood. I remember taking it out and trying to use it to build my campsite. It didn’t last very long. Of course, it also had a compass which worked perfectly fine. Learning to read it was very tricky. The first time I decided to use it to guide myself, I still ended up a couple of miles from home.
One thing that I’d never imagined that would be a problem while I was growing up and going camping were mosquitoes. I’d never really thought of how bothersome they could be. For some reason, mosquitoes seemed to like me a lot. If about five of us were sleeping in one tent, I would be the only one bitten. I’d used the very same spray repellent that the others had used. It was frustrating to see that if I had missed a spot, that would be the very place that I would get bitten.
I did a lot of research back then and used every possible product I could get my hands on. At one point, I was even trying garlic. Yes, that’s right. Someone told me that if you chewed garlic and then you transpired, the mosquitoes would be repelled by the substances in the garlic. It made a lot of sense to me because I knew at the time that garlic was very effective with vampires.
I went ahead and tried the garlic only to wake up with terrible breath and my usual share of mosquito bites. I became the laugh at that camping trip. I stopped going camping a long time ago. One of the things that I wish I could have known is what I saw in this video. A man is explaining how he has suffered from being the mosquitoes’ favorite for a long time.
What he has in his hand is the Holy Grail of repellents. I even had that at my home back in the day. But because I didn’t know, I never used it. He goes into detail explaining how this product that most of us usually buy anyway, is perfect for repelling mosquitoes. If you’re like me, you are dying to watch the following video. So, without further ado, here is your solution!
