We love hanging out on our back patio in the summer, but unfortunately so do our neighborhood bugs! We live very close to the Harpeth River here in Middle Tennessee, and bugs are always an issue in the heat of the summer. If you don’t have a screened-in porch or patio, it can be almost impossible to eat outside and enjoy entertaining friends and family unless you have a plan in place. My older daughter had a backyard campout earlier this month to celebrate her big 13th birthday, and there was much screaming about bugs, and that was just in their tent!
I’m helping to spread the word about a fun Twitter party that kicks off tonight at 6 p.m. Nashville time (which is 7 p.m. EST) hosted by DynaTrap. DynaTraps are quiet, and pesticide and chemical free. They are perfect for outdoor use and the smaller portable DT150 model is perfect for garages and screened-in porches. I’m going to be testing out a DynaTrap in our backyard and I can’t wait to see how it helps deter all of the mosquitos. I hate using insect repellant. The harsh smell and chemicals just don’t mix well with dining al fresco!
I hope to see you tonight at the Twitter party! See the invite below for all of the details and RSVP here. Be sure to follow the official DynaTrap Twitter party hashtag, #BackyardBiteBack to learn more about how to banish bugs with DynaTrap. You can also win some pretty cool prizes this evening including the grand prize which will get your backyard ready for entertaining all summer long: a Dynatrap DT2000XL ( a $200+ value), a Dynazap, and a $100 gift card to Frontgate.
DynaTrap will also be featured on QVC today, so check out QVC’s #TSV to purchase your own Dynatrap! http://qvc.co/DynatrapTSV
