Buzz Off Mosquitos! 3 Chemical-Free Ways To Keep Mozzies Out Of Your Camper Trailer This Summer

The six-week holiday break at the end of the school year is the perfect time to hitch the camper trailer onto your vehicle and head off exploring Australia with the kids. Since this is your first Christmas season with a camper trailer, there are lots of things to learn about so that your family will have a fantastic holiday together. One of the biggest annoyances for those with sensitive skin is keeping the mosquitos away. Use these three chemical-free techniques to keep the mosquitos out of your trailer so your family can sleep scratch free!

Check the window mesh

You need to set up the camper trailer before you head away to make sure everything is in good condition, and part of this checklist is checking the mesh secured over each of the camper windows. The mesh is there so you can let fresh air in without freeloading bugs coming in too!

Take a close look at each window point to ensure the mesh is firmly sewn into place and that there are no rips in the mesh which allow mosquitos through. Repair a small hole by painting it with two coats of clear nail polish. However, a large hole needs to be patched by a professional repairer. Your local camping equipment supplier has a list of repair agents local to you.

Electric bug zappers

A supply of electric bug zappers in the camper trailer are another chemical-free way to keep the mozzies at bay. Buy these at your local hardware store and camping supply stores. You can purchase both battery-powered and plug-into-the wall style zappers.

The best place to put a bug zapper is close to the sleeping area of your family. Mosquitos like body heat, so they will bite while your family sweats during their sleep at night. Make sure you teach your children not to put their fingers anywhere near the bug zapper as they do hurt if you touch them.

Park your camper trailer strategically

Mosquitos like stagnant water to breed in, so choose your campsite wisely if you want to keep the bugs away. If the area you are travelling to has had recent storms, check your campsite to ensure there are no pools of water hiding inside hollow logs or in big puddles next to your campsite. The best chemical-free way to keep mosquitos out of your trailer is to avoid areas where there are a significant amount of them in the first place!

Football Training Tips For Improving Your Game

Do you ever find you've only been on the pitch for half an hour and you feel exhausted? That was me five years ago, and I decided I needed to get serious about improving my game. I learned how to increase my stamina on the football pitch, improved my technique and worked on my general fitness and nutrition. I can now comfortably play for a full 90 minutes, and I started this blog to pass what I've learned on to other amateur footballers. I also accept guest post submissions, so we can all benefit from each other’s knowledge and improve our game.
