We live in the land of 'mosquito season' or 'not mosquito season'. And let's be honest, it's a big problem here in the great state of Louisiana, especially at this time of year!

I'm always on the look out for ways to keep the mosquitoes, flies, and wasps away from my backyard activities, and the folks at Homestead Spirit found a natural repellent that really works! Check it out below, because this might make a huge difference in your outdoor fun for 4th of July, y'all! Buy some whole cloves, cut your lemons or limes in half, and stud the cloves on the fruit. Not only is it going to make your area quite fragrant, but it actually works as a deterrent to those pesky bugs!
