Bug-Repellant Jar

During this season, the nasty mosquitoes are always out to play. To combat them, find rustic mason jars and fill them up with mint, lemon, and rosemary. Add water and citronella oil, then finish off with a candle. Place your jars near windows to keep those bugs from coming inside.
