At the Cottage with Bugs

The cottage with bugs is inevitable, right? Not everyone is a fan of bugs, however and bugs don’t love all people equally either! Oh, those bugs….I’m all for equality! Spread the love, will you?

My daughter is a prime example of this. Mosquitoes absolutely adore her! We always joke that she is super sweet and that is why the bugs love her so much.
Cottaging and Bugs
Those bug bites on the back of her legs are just the start of our cottage trip last summer!

Aside from the bugs, I am a HUGE fan of going to the cottage. When I was a baby, my parents rented a cottage every summer. My summers growing up are filled with memories of swimming and running around in our bathing suits from morning until dusk! I also have may memories of the cottage with bugs too! When I was in Grade 9, my parents purchased a cottage that was accessible by boat. Again, many fond memories of that cottage and the years we spent there including me running a Swim Program across the lake and having to cross the lake by boat to get to work every day, despite the weather. After that cottage, my parents decided to build a summer home (what was to be their place of retirement, but that plan changed) on the road access side of the lake. This is the cottage that I visit with my kids every summer. It has already become a part of their summer memories and is a very special place.

    My youngest daughter attracts mosquitoes like its nobodies business. Thankfully we don’t have many here in the city but she always gets attacked the minute she leaves. Thanks for the info, I’m going to check it out!

    My fondest memories of my childhood are the car trips every summer down south to my grandparents. They had a house with lots of land and barn like buildings too. Granddad was a big gardener had a marvellous greenhouse and at one time kept pigs, had hens and bee hives too. He was often found pottering about in one of the sheds working on something or other. As town people this was for me the best part of the year 🙂

    My girls keep getting tons of bug bites and have a tendency to scratch them until they bleed. I am definitely going to get some of the Orange Naturals to see if it helps them.

    We have too many mosquitoes here in the summer but with a large sized pond just beyond our back garden it’s no wonder. They love my blood must be very tasty! This sounds like it might be worth trying out to stop the itching, thanks for posting about this.
