Are you always tormented by bugs in the summertime?

RELATED: 5 reasons why mosquitoes won’t leave you alone

Here are some natural ways to keep the mosquitoes and other insects at bay.

Mint mouthwash spray: Bugs don’t like mint, so spray this on and around you when you go outdoors.

Fans: An oscillating or ceiling fan may keep the bugs away, as insects are “lazy flyers” and won’t fly against the wind.

Plants: Fill your garden with rosemary, mint and garlic, all of which have been proven to deter bugs.

Water: Stay cool and hydrated! Bugs love hot, sticky skin.

And take it easy on perfumes and other body sprays, as they can attract unwanted pests.
