Smudge your campfire with sage to keep bugs away

Sage-scented smoke from tossing some sticks of sage into a campfire or fire pit will turn off mosquitos and other insects from invading your camp space. It smells nice to us, but they have discerning tastes, apparently. Like dung. Weirdos.

Use your own self-grown sage or some smudge sticks and bask in your campfire glow with fewer bug bites.
