Pest control

A few days ago I was thinking about what to write about next, when I got bit by a mosquito for the thousandth time this summer, than after two minutes another one. Or it might have been the same one, I`m not sure… The fact that I am lucky enough to live in the Netherlands right next to a canal does not help with this problem either. Anyway, this is what I came up with…

I have compiled a list of the best bug deterrents, mosquito repellents, slug and rodent control and as a bonus by the end a few products that actually make the war on flies dare I say, fun…


Mosquito repellents
