I am in search of an insect repellent that actually works. During my research, I learned that mosquitoes are attracted to dark clothing, lactic acids produced by eating salty foods and perfumes. I like to believe that the mosquitoes love me because I am so sweet, not because I just inhaled a large serving of McDonald’s French fries. If you want to enjoy nature this summer without investing in a citronella company, head inside to the Butterfly House in Faust Park. They have plenty of fun events for the whole family, and here are some to put on your to-do list for July.
