However, it is important that you remain diligent in protecting you and your family against the myriad outdoor pests, including flies, mosquitoes and cockroaches.
Chambers Pest Control recommends the following to ensure your Christmas Day barbecue isn’t overrun with pests:
Avoid floral or fruity fragrances – so insects don’t mistake you for dinner
Avoid foods high in salt or potassium – as these create lactic acid in the human body, which attracts mosquitoes
Utilise insect repelling oils – these include citronella, cinnamon, lemon eucalyptus, lemongrass, cedar, clove and peppermint
Surround your outdoor entertaining area with potted insect repellent plants – these include lavender, catnip, thyme, mint, lemongrass, basil and rosemary
