GOOD NEWS!

QUOTE- "Last month, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Research Service posted a bulletin with a surprising headline:

Coconut Oil Compounds Repel Insects Better than DEET.

This announcement followed the results from a study by USDA researchers published in the journal Scientific Reports, stating that fatty acids derived from coconut oil had long-lasting repellency against certain insects—an even better effect than the most widely-used insect repellent in the world."

Is it true that the DEET used in most mosquito repellents is toxic?

Oh my gosh, I still remember when we had a pine bed base on the dirt floor and as we lifted the bed up it just fell into splinters. This is a horrible thing to see. From that moment I knew any insect is something we should carry about and after I read termite fumigation safety issues, I knew about all risks and things I should undertake. Termites are creepy and hungry, so it's better to go for asking some professionals to deal with them.
