Don't Let The Bugs Bug You This Spring!
Spring is the time of year when mosquitoes and other insects start to feed. As the swarms descend, we scurry to our cabinets or first aid kits to find the long forgotten, often synthetic, chemical-based repellents, in hopes of warding off the feeding frenzy. However using synthetic and chemical-based repellents does not come without environmental and health safety concerns. High concentrations of DEET have been linked to rashes, disorientation, and seizures. The more I educate myself about DEET and other chemicals, the more I’m convinced I have to be proactive about finding better alternatives.
