Some of the best parts of summer? Barbecues, hanging with family, and honestly, just being able to leave the house without 10 layers of fabric on you to try and stay warm. The worst part about being able to show off your sun-kissed skin? It gives mosquitos all the opportunities to bite you. No, thank you! While we can't just magically make mosquitos disappear or not attack us anymore (they apparently don't understand “please”) we can help try to keep them out of your backyard — and no, not with bug spray.
Is it just us, or after applying bug spray, do you also instantly feel slimy, sticky, and just gross? Unlike sunscreen, you definitely can feel the spray just lingering on you until a shower. Why should we suffer and be uncomfortable just because bugs are obsessed with us? That's why this summer we're going with these Murphy Mosquito Sticks — and they're changing our lives. A pack of 12 will run you $11.95 — literally less than a dollar per stick. You’re welcome!
All you have to do to use them is light them and then stick them in a candle or a holder and you're good to go. They have a variety of scents, too — from: rosemary, peppermint, citronella, lemongrass, cedar wood, and bamboo! In an Amazon review, user Tux said, "They work as well or better than any other citronella or incense-style bug deterrent " — they're also DEET-free, which is a major plus!
