We love summer (who doesn’t?) but we hate the annoying bug bites that come with it (again, who doesn’t?). We’ve tried all sorts of natural bug sprays, yard sprays, and even incense sticks because we’re definitely not big fans of putting unnecessary chemicals on our bodies (I’m actually allergic to Deet) or our yard (Burger’s hunting ground). Which is why we jumped at the chance to try out a new, natural product called My Mosquito Deleter.
As you can see in the video below, the My Mosquito Deleter is a pretty simple system. It’s a bucket of standing water with a specially designed trap that, thanks to a special tablet, encourages mosquitos to lay their eggs in the Deleter. Then the trap keeps the newborn blood-suckers from ever escaping (cue the maniacal laughter). So while it doesn’t kill existing buggers, it keeps new ones from setting up residence in your yard, thereby cutting their numbers dramatically. We put our buckets out a couple of weeks ago and so far so good. The average mosquito lifespan is 30 days, so we’re still waiting for some of the existing blood-suckers to die off. But after that we’ll hopefully be itch free for a while.
And the good news is that four lucky winners will also take home their very own 4-pack of mosquito deleting buckets. Here’s the scoop (oh and let me know what you think of our the new, quicker-to-read format for freebie details):
