I smelled fall in the air yesterday, and visions of campfires danced in my heads. Ahhh, S'mores, wool blankets and crisp air. Also present? Bugs. Creepy, crawly and hungry [ouch!] bugs. Needless to say, I'm vowing to keep myself covered this year.

Luckily, Howcast has a handy tutorial on keeping the bugs [and toxins] at bay with a DIY bug-spray remedy:

The best part? You only need three easy ingredients: witch hazel [which is a natural reliever for bug bites], eucalyptus oil and cider vinegar. You'll smell organic to humans, but dangerous to bugs. What could be better?

I can't wait to show those backyard bugs who's boss at our next campfire/bbq shindig. What about you? Any bug remedies you swear by? Comment below to share them with us and we may feature your ideas in our next How Now post!
