Don't Let Bugs Crash Your Party! *Free Printable

Here, in the South, the sweltering days of summer are coming to a close and the days are just now becoming tolerable. The nicer the weather, the more time we spend outside and nothing is worse than unwanted party crashers! If you are hosting an outdoor get together, relaxing in the yard or exploring the outdoors with your kiddos- nothing can ruin the fun quite like mosquitos and their other biting buddies!

With that in mind, I have put together a few quick pointers to NATURALLY keep the bugs away. You all know how much I love lists:)

Our family loves Bare Belly Organics, we used their organic sunscreen this summer instead of the chemical laden big brands. I was so excited when they came out with a bug spray- I would rather get bitten than smell like traditional bug sprays. The ingredients for BUGS BEBARE are all natural and smell wonderful!

Recently, my sister threw a huge birthday bash for her husband's 30th. Their yard is known to be quite the "skeeter" hang out. She designed these adorable signs and attached them to beach pails. The bug spray was easy for her guests to find and it prevented many a bite!



My sis was kind enough to share her design with The Puzzled Palate readers as a FREE PRINTABLE! We suggest laminating the sign for repeat use!


Our party crasher sign is formatted to print as a 4 X 6. If you don't have a printer, you can right-click to save the file to your computer and upload it to your local photo center!

  1. Sounds like a great product! We like Fairy Tales bug spray (also all natural), but I may try this one and compare. And like you, I'm so glad the sweltering days are behind us and fall is swooping in.

  7. Cute! I am going to Beaches next month, and we have to bring serious bug spray to avoid the disease carrying buggies. I need a bottle!

  8. We had to have our whole yard sprayed because they were so bad, when we leave our bubble though they swarm us! The mosquitoes have been so bad this year. I'll have to check this surf out.

  9. A very good friends wipes a fabric softener sheet all over herself and that works for her - but not me!

  10. I'm still not convinced with these safe and natural alternatives to good old fashioned DEET. :-) I've tried a bunch but not this kind, wondering if it is any better than the others.

  11. To each their own- I prefer to skip spraying deet on myself and kids:)

  12. Oh my goodness! I am breaking out just thinking about it! I am allergic to fabric softener- so that might be a really bad idea for me!

    Bugs love to bite me! I'm always desperate for a good prevention that's still safe around the baby. Thanks!
