MOSQUITOES CAN DAMPEN AN OTHERWISE GREAT CAMPING EXPERIENCE. KNOWING HOW TO REPEL THEM, even without slathering yourself in hazardous levels of bug repellent, is a great skill to have when camping.

Take along a few bundles of sage the next time you go camping. Then, when the sun is setting and the campfire is going, burn a bit of sage with your fire. Or for a longer-lasting effect, set the sage on fire and let it smolder and smoke by the edge of the campfire. Mosquitoes are naturally repelled by sage smoke, and you’ll find a lot less of them buzzing around you.
