5 Ways To Rid Mosquitoes Naturally

5 ways to rid mosquitoes naturally

 

In the Pacific Northwest, we know in Summertime one day it can be raining, the next day 90 degrees. (It’s not unusual for our closets to have tank tops next to turtlenecks. You just never know!) With the constant change of weather, you get busy with yard work in between rain storms. But *smack* these darn *smack* mosquitoes are driving me crazy!  (I’m allergic to them so that makes it even worse.)  And considering mosquitoes also carry the Zika virus, let’s deter these pests the best way we can. After researching natural ways to rid these highly annoying insects here are 5 tips to rid mosquitoes naturally in your yard:

Plant Marigolds – The bright marigold not only adds nice splashes of color to your garden borders and potted plants, it also gives off a scent which repels mosquitoes.  Marigolds contain Pyrethrum, a compound used in many insect repellents.

Dump Standing Water – mosquito larvae can exist in as little as 2 tablespoons of standing water. Children’s toys are the #1 culprits (here’s looking at you sand pails and water tables!)  These pests can develop in any size puddle that has been around for 4 days.  I know it’s convenient to keep a pail of water near your plants for quicker watering, but know that this also enables the creation and housing for the nasty mosquito.

Eliminate Decaying Foliage From Ground – Not only is removing fallen leaves from the yard better for your grass, it will eliminate a breeding ground for mosquitoes.   Fallen leaves, over time, create mold and/or fungus and mosquitoes love that stuff!  Mold/fungus is a sought-after meal for the mosquito so it’s best to remove leaves, branches, any plant from your yard that isn’t living.

Fill Your Pond With Mosquito Eating Fish – Stock your ornamental pond with guppies, koi, or goldfish (most healthy, hungry fish will eliminate the majority of mosquito larvae from ponds).

Remove Debris (a.k.a. Tires) From Yard– The used tire has become the most important domestic mosquito producer in this country.  If you’ve done a little automotive repair, and have kept the task of “Take tire to recycling center” on your To-Do List too long, now’s the time to take it away and check it off your list.

These are a few tips that I hope will help you rid your yard of the highly annoying mosquito so that you can enjoy your time in the comfort and beauty of your own backyard.

Ice Cream Samples: Do They Cost or Pay Dividends for Shops?

Ice cream - Ann Again and again Reviews
photo courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

While standing in line for a cold, sweet treat my mind started to wander… this time it wasn’t about paying bills, or thinking about what to make for dinner, this time I was getting into the finance of ice cream. Odd, I know. But, what can I say?  I think of when an ice cream shop has dozens of flavors to choose from, it’s difficult for customers to narrow down their choice. A manager might think that giving away free samples is too expensive but, according to Gelato Products, offering a small sample has big potential to improve profit margins. Ice cream samples: Do they cost or pay dividends for shops?

To make sampling a shop’s ice cream easier, order inexpensive tasting spoons that are designed for short-term use. The portion that an employee will serve to a customer provides only one or two bites, making samples affordable.

Fun Tasting Parties

gelato - Ann Again and again Reviews

Ice cream isn’t the only sample that a shop should offer because more customers want to taste gelato before making a purchase. To remain organized, an ice cream shop can buy gelato spoons in different sizes or colors. If customers are tasting samples of gelato and ice cream, then having spoons that look unique to the product can help them compare the flavors of the frozen desserts. With this technique, an ice cream shop can have a fun tasting party for customers to encourage sales of the desserts.

Sell More Product

Gelato or ice cream spoons for sampling might seem expensive, but the items are affordable at bulk prices from a specialty supply store. While the ice cream supplies necessary for providing samples to customers are not free for a manager, the items can help to increase profits because customers want to buy a larger container of their favorite flavor of ice cream or gelato.  And with this summer heat wave?  I know I want all of my cold, sweet treats in the largest container possible!

I live in a well known grey part of the Pacific Northwest, Portland, OR.  However, the sun does shine here, especially in the summer time, and that is when I find sunglasses to be a necessity.  Maybe it’s because it doesn’t shine as often that my eyes aren’t used to it’s powerful glare?  Or, it’s a big ball of light and it’s bright!  Whatever the reason, when I’m heading out I make sure to have my sunglasses.  My little blond haired/blue-eyed Lily definitely needs sunglasses however, for her they are the prescription sunglasses.  She’s my little fashionista so they need to be extra flashy.  I’ve found great styles at Firmoo.com.

Rooibee Red Tea Brings Healthy Refreshment On These Hot Summer Days

Read More
Rooibee Red Tea
My mother was the first person to tell me how good Rooibee (pronounced: ROY-bos) was for you. She was reading the book series “The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency” and the author mentioned tea made from the Rooibos bush and the health benefits of this tea. My mom researched this product and started drinking tea made from Rooibos and wanted me to try it to alleviate my sinus pain. I’m always ready to try a natural product for pain relief and that began my lesson in Rooibos.

Recently I was given the opportunity to try a line of beverages that incorporate the health benefits of the Rooibos bush in refreshing, tasty drinks that are cold and delicious, just perfect for a warm Summer day – Rooibee Red Tea.
Product-Collage-On-Ice
I prefer my children (and all children!) to avoid drinks with caffeine and Rooibee Red Tea is caffeine free, full of antioxidants and a full serving of Vitamin C. Each bottle contains between 80 to 90 calories.
Full ingredients of Cranberry Pomegranate:
INGREDIENTS:
Water, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Rooibos Tea Extract (390mg), Gallic Acid Equivalent (78mg),
Natural Flavor, Organic Citric Acid, Organic Ascorbic Acid, Hibiscus Extract (color).
My family and I enjoyed the tastes of Rooibee Red Tea. I find a no more flattering review then to have my 15 year old daughter ask, “Is there any more?” Let me say, when our review bottles were empty, she wanted to know where we could buy more of her favorite flavors. I’m up for that! Rooibee Red Tea is available in delicious flavors: Peach, Cranberry Pomegranate, Watermelon Mint, Vanilla Chai and Unsweetened. (The Peach and Cranberry Pomegranate were the favorites in our house.) You can try these for yourself when you purchase them at New Seasons, Whole Foods and Kroger Stores.

Have You Had Your Sprinkle Today? Shower to Shower Body Powder

Ann Again and again Reviews Shower to Shower Body Powder

 

Ann Again and again Reviews Shower to Shower Body PowderWith the warmer weather upon us I’m looking for ways to enjoy the season but to stay as dry as possible. I hate sweating. Hate it! My sister laughs at me but when I exercise I want to have a fan blowing right on me. Silly, I know, but sweating just isn’t my thing. Recently I was reminded of a product that not only can help me feel lighter in the warmer months, but adds a lovely, soft scent through out the day. How could I have forgotten about this? Shower to Shower Body Powder.

When thinking of powder I’m reminded of using this kind of product on my young babies, but body powder isn’t just for babies! Shower to Shower Absorbent Body Powder can make Moms feel comfortable and cool no matter how warm it gets outdoors. In fact, when running around town with baby gear, strollers and bottles, body powder becomes a downright necessity, helping to prevent chafing and keeping you smelling great all day long with fragrances that are soft, lively and just perfect for Summer time.

Ann Again and again Reviews Shower To Shower Body Powder
Breeze Fresh

 

Its silky-soft powder pampers the skin, while its unique absorption formula keeps you feeling drier longer – and the best part is, body powder only takes a few seconds to apply. Love that!

You can use Shower to Shower to freshen your shoes – in my case, my children’s shoes! Add to your deodorant routine to keep stains at bay. Sprinkle some Shower to Shower on after putting on lotion to take the stickiness away so you can get dressed faster. Sprinkle a bit on your sheets for a soft, more luxurious feel to help you drift off to sleep.

Many uses to help you create a fresher day! Remember the jingle – “Have you had your sprinkle today?” :->

Partying With Red Baron – And A Giveaway!

Ann Again and again Reviews Red Baron Pizza

When it comes to planning a party my girls always make sure pizza is on the list. My husband Rob is a terrific cook and loves to make home made pizza however, he wasn’t available for the girls End-Of-School year party so I needed to come up with something else. Red Baron has added delicious pizzas to their line-up – Classic Crust Hawaiian, Fire Baked Spicy Pepperoni and various tastes in their Deep Dish Singles. There was a flavor for everyone and the kids had a blast. Here’s a little peek at their party –

The Spicy Pepperoni was on a fire baked crust and the girls really enjoyed it. It wasn’t too spicy and had a nice amount of pepperoni. The Classic Crust Hawaiian had a nice blend of chewy dough with a very thin crispy layer. The combination of sweet pineapple and tender ham was a hit. That pizza went fast. You can find Red Baron pizzas in the frozen food aisle.

Getting Ready For Summer Camp Fun

Summer is here! If you have a teenager like mine, you’ll be packing plenty of shorts and sunscreen for a much anticipated week at camp. My daughter went away to her first camp when she was 11 and she was hooked. When Spring rolls around I hear, “Have we booked any camps for me yet?” I love that she looks forward to her time in the great outdoors.

This year she is wanting to visit a new camp, she’s ready for new discoveries. I’ve found the online resource at TipsOnTripsAndCamps.com incredibly helpful. You can look up various camps based on your child’s age or by camp interest. Not all camps are directed at swimming and hiking, you can also be directed toward camps that specialize in learning a foreign language or community service opportunities.

When you visit TipsOnTripsAndCamps.com you’ll find attention paid to your questions from a panel of personal advisors that are located in the area of the camp. They help guide you toward finding an experience that’s just right for your child. You have many choices to help create a summer to remember and the helpful panel at TipsOnTripsAndCamps.com will help make your planning a breeze.
