Bzzzz, bzzzz, munch, crunch, bite!

Want to keep the bugs at bay this summer? 
Follow these tried and true tips from Redbook Magazine!

Bounce it away: Put a dryer sheet in each pocket.  Bounce contains a plant extract that is toxic to bugs.

Wear light neutral colors
: Bright colors attract bugs and they mistake dark colors for animal hides.

Drink wine or iced tea:  Those nasty pests like beer, soda and anything that bubbles.  Stick with a non-carbonated beverage.

Those were new tips for me! I drink a lot of tea, so that is a good start. That is hilarious that bugs mistake dark colors for animal hides!
