Gardening - Natural bug repellent in your garden


The Best Bug Repellent is All-Natural


(ARA) If you ll be spending any time outdoors during the summer months, there are two precautions you need to take -- put on sunscreen to protect yourself and your kids from the damaging rays of the sun, and bug spray to keep biting insects at bay.

Most bug sprays on the market today are safe when used as directed, but Allen Jones, spokesman for Bite Blocker, an all-natural bug spray, points out serious problems with insect repellants that contain DEET, a chemical bug repellent developed 50 years ago by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the Army. The federal EPA claims it s safe when used as directed, yet most people are unaware of the problems sprays containing DEET can cause and simply use it as needed any way. They don t take the time to read the warnings in small print on the label, and the label doesn t explain the problems over exposure can cause. That should send up a red flag. I d much rather use a repellent that is safe to apply as needed rather than as directed.
