Bees important to our ecosystem. Without bees, our human species would not survive.
As good as bees are for us and the environment, nobody wants to get stung. For some, a bee sting can cause a severe reaction. It’s best to keep bees at a safe distance without hurting them. A natural bee repellent is the perfect solution.
Off the shelf bee repellents contain chemicals which could be harmful to bees and the environment. Fortunately there is a natural DIY oilternative.
Essential oils are plant extracts which often act as insect repellents to protect the plant. Below is a super simple recipe that repels bees and other insects, is non-toxic but smells wonderful to humans!
DIY Insect Repellent Recipe
- 5 drops of Peppermint
- 10 ounce spray bottle filled half way with water
That’s it! Just spray in areas where you don’t want bees or insects. I spray my back porch.
Don’t have Peppermint? Substitute Eucalyptus or Citronella
