He Burns Coffee Grounds in His Backyard. The Reason? Genius!

Mosquitoes are the worst to deal with in the summer but not for long.

They are always ruining a good barbecue or night out next to a bonfire. These little blood suckers come with diseases and an annoying buzzing noise. The solution for repelling them isn’t a healthy option to use at all. 

They cost too much and have many toxic chemicals in them. However, there is a solution to all this. Coffee grounds. The Environmental Protection Agency says that coffee grounds are effective in repelling many insects such as bees, wasps and mosquitoes. 

Insects are found to have a great power for smell and when they sniff coffee grounds, they go the other way. 

So how do you use them?

Well, it isn’t hard at all. Put fresh or used coffee grounds in a bowl and cover it with aluminum foil. Place the bowl in cool, dark place so that the grounds can dry. After that, put the grounds on a sheet of foil or bowl, on a flat surface outdoors. Burn it up like incense!

You can burn the grounds inside to keep mosquitoes out, just keep your windows wide open. When you are having a large get together for family/friends, place the bowl in the main spot of the room or backyard. 

Add in fresh bay leaf with the coffee grounds if the grounds aren’t strong enough. On a windy day, or in a large outdoor area, burn up to 5 bowls to ensure coverage. Thats the cheap and eco-friendly way to repel off those annoying little blood-suckers.
