Pest-Free Picnic Table
• Add 5 drops of lavender essential oil to 32 ounces of water. Out into a spray bottle and wipe down the table and chairs.
• Put a couple of drop of lavender or peppermint essential oil on a cool light bulb to help repel bugs.
Send Away the Ants
• Set each leg of your picnic table into a container of water – teracotta saucers work great for this and you can paint them to match your décor.
• Incorporate lemon-scented geraniums, a type of citronella into your décor.
