Summer can kill Ya! Keep Mosquitoes away.

by Mary on August 23, 2013

Mosquitoes are a huge nuisance to all wanting to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

Have you ever wondered why some people get eaten alive by mosquitoes and another person next to them does not get touched?

Heidi Mitchell, Wall Street Journal contributor explains what really attracts mosquitoes to your skin..they are looking for bacteria.

The mosquito is first drawn to heat and carbon dioxide. Then the dive to the exposed skin with the most bacteria. (ie sweaty parts).

Solution: Clean skin is your best defense. Don’t use garlic or DEET (gasp). If you don’t have soap and water handy, mist of with your Green Now Mist and refresh and hydrate at the same time. See report below.
