All-Natural Mosquito Protection for Your Yard

All-Natural Mosquito Protection for Your Yard

It's that time of year again. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the mosquitos are attacking. Between water play, gardening, and eating meals on our back porch, my family spends a lot of time outside during the warmer months. When we first moved into our current home, I remember going outside to pick pears from our pear tree and literally running back inside because the mosquitos flocked to me as soon as I walked out the door. I carry a natural bug spray with me wherever we go during the spring and summer months, but I often forget to apply it to me and the kids when we are just out and about in the yard.

Last year, our local Mosquito Squad applied a garlic treatment to our yard that we were super happy with. The only downside was that it had to be applied more frequently and made the cost higher than their regular synthetic treatment. During the last couple months of the summer we were chosen as a test yard for a new cedarwood treatment that doesn't have to be applied as often making the price more affordable. We were equally pleased with the cedarwood solution and have already had our first treatment for this year! This is our third year as a customer and I'm VERY pleased with Mosquito Squad's customer service and their willingness to research and provide a product that is safe for me and my family. 

Here's a little more about the all-natural treatment: 

1) The all-natural, cedarwood based treatment is applied to the areas of our property where mosquitoes are known to hang out. This treatment works as pheromone inhibitor and also has a raspberry biosolvent that triggers instant erosion and dehydrates the insect's ekoskeleton (read more about that here). 

2) They come to my house every three weeks to apply the treatment and it provides 70% elimination (the synthetic version provides 90%). This is huge because there have been more and more reports of people being infected with the diseases that mosquitoes and ticks carry (i.e. lyme, rocky mount spotted fever, etc.). 

3) It is safe for our kids and our garden (yay for edible herbs and veggies!) and helps reduce the amount of pesticides that we carry into our home from the yard.

I love that the natural mosquito and tick protection makes our yard a place where I can hang out with my kiddos and enjoy the spring and summer months together.

My Personal Makeup Routine + Product Links

February 13, 2020

A couple weeks ago I wrote a blog post about my personal facial care routine and I promised a follow up makeup routine post! As most of you know, I'm super picky about the products I use and try to stick to products that are clean (meaning they don't contain a bunch of harmful chemicals). My Some Call Me Crunchy line of products are made with all natural ingredients and don't include any harsh chemicals (I include how I use those in the facial care routine post). While I do use makeup products from a few different companies, most everything comes from Beautycounter. I've been using their makeup for years and can't say enough good things about them...

Yesterday, I caught my five year old daughter washing her face while I was making dinner. I asked her if it was dirty and she said something along the lines of, "No, Mom, I'm washing my face because I'm pretending to be a grown up and that's what grown ups do." I found it quite funny and cool that she's picked up on the fact that I have a facial-care routine. It's one of the ways that I practice self-care on a daily basis and I love that she's noticing...
