OMG! No More Mosquito Irritations?

The best remedy for itchy mosquito bites is to prevent them in the first place. Use these tips to help stay bite-free this summer:

  1. Stay indoors at dusk when mosquitoes are out and about.
  2. Wear loose-fitting, long-sleeved tops, and tuck long pants into your socks.
  3. Stay away from black and white fabrics, which seem to drive the little bugs wild.
  4. Plant rosemary, sage, catnip, parsley and marigolds around your yard. These seem to repel mosquitoes due to their natural chemicals and scents.

  5. Try mixtures of essential oils, such as patchouli oil and eucalyptus. These are moderately effective if you’re not dealing with really thick swarms of mosquitoes.

  6. In places like Alaska or Minnesota, where mosquitoes can be overwhelming, use insect repellants containing lemonbalm, a plant-derived compound, or neem oil, from the Indian tree Azadirachta indica.
  7. LAST BUT NOT  LEAST …try OMG’s Bugging Out Spray from our Integumentary System OMG Rx Line. Filled with Lemongrass, Aloe and Cucumber extract this spray will repel the insects immediately and besides mosquitoes it works for flies, fleas and ants.
