2. Avoid hanging near the water
Mosquitos lay their eggs near the water so there is often a greater number near waterways. An easy way to reduce the number of mosquitos is to move away from any water sources.
This is a great way to keep the mosquitos away. It has no smell, leaves no residue, and kills mosquitos and ticks on contact while still being non-toxic for us. You might want to give this spray a try.
4. Use insect repellent
In our opinion you can never do too much to get rid of these pesky buggers. It is a smart idea to bring a deet spray or lotion with you. You could also burn a citronella candle at camp for some extra protection.
5. Avoid using strong smelling hygiene products
Mosquitos tend to pick on those that smell delicious. So, another easy way to keep them away is to not use any hygiene products that would attract them.
6. Use a bug net
If you already have a Hobo Hammock and don’t want to add a Skeeto Shield mosquito net hammock to your collection, you might consider adding a bug net to your summer camping gear. It is a lightweight addition that will save you from many itchy nights!
