CAMP BOFFIN

GET RID OF THOSE PESKY MOS­QUI­TOES

Go! Camp & Drive - - FRONT PAGE - Text Kyle Kock

You get peo­ple who go camp­ing look­ing like a full-on Rambo. But not with ammo belts, ri­fles and grenades. No, they’re armed to the teeth with a few cans of bug spray, at least two different kinds of mosquitore­pelling lo­tion, can­dles and oil, and a buff. All in an ef­fort to en­sure a mosquito doesn’t land on their head, neck or shoul­ders – es­pe­cially while sleep­ing. There are few things more an­noy­ing than the high-pitched buzz of a mosquito wak­ing you from a pleas­ant dream in the grave­yard hours. Any­one who says it doesn’t bother them is ei­ther a liar, a snorer, or they fin­ished that bot­tle be­fore head­ing to bed. It’s bad enough hav­ing to con­tend with that kind of nui­sance at home, but when we im­merse our­selves in na­ture it’s best to do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to avoid it.
