Did you know bay leaves, sage and cloves are all natural insect repellents? It’s true. You can crush them up and use them by themselves or crush them up and use them together. Put them in bowls and place around your barbecue and picnic to keep the bugs at bay, or burn as a potpourri. You can even put wrap them in a bit a gauze and wear them on your person to deter insects from biting.
