According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the strength given to a female mosquito after just one bite from your child will allow it to lay 100 to 300 eggs! Blahhhh. But try one or all of these home remedies for a more enjoyable bite and bump-free summer:
- Bubble Machine: Fun and effective!
- Homemade Repellent: Mix one part lemongrass, eucalyptus and/or citrus essential oils to three parts water. Spray in small test area first. For kids older than 3 only.
- Fabric Softener Sheets: Rub yourselves down and/or stick them into your pockets.
