Staying in a natural environment can be uncomfortable if the location is full of mosquitoes and snakes. Always wear herbal remedies with insecticidal and repellent effects that will repel unwanted insects and relieve pain in the event of a sudden bite. It is estimated that about 120,000 human lives are lost annually due to being bitten by snakes. Ordinary mosquitoes can be even more dangerous than snakes. Mosquitoes can be carriers of some dangerous infections. Mosquito bites are becoming the cause of one million deaths a year, says the World Health Organization. Humans do not die from bites but from diseases that insects transmit to humans. The recommendation is to always be careful when staying outdoors.
- Essential oils – from eucalyptus, anise, basil or cloves are the best herbal remedy against mosquito and fly bites. Lubricate the skin with a little oil to repel insects.
- Baking soda and lemon – when bitten by a mosquito, put a little baking soda or lemon juice on the sting. This will significantly reduce the itching.
- Buckthorn-compress of this plant is an effective means of relieving pain and itching. Make a mush from the leaves. Put a mosquito, wasp, or fly at the site of the bite.
- Dandelion – smear the bite site with dandelion juice. This reduces burning and itching.
- Garlic – put a pulp of onion on the place of a mosquito, wasp or other insect bite.
- Parsley-fresh parsley leaf put in place of bee stings. Parsley reduces swelling and pain. Parsley root tea alleviates the general allergic reaction.

- In the bag (for going to nature), be sure to put antihistamines that help attack and bite poisonous snakes. A snake attacks most often when people mistakenly set foot on a snake. Try to get to the doctor or ambulance as soon as possible. In the meantime, try to suck and immediately spit out the poison from the bite site. Do this in the first 20 to 30 minutes and only if you do not have sores or cracks in your mouth. Treat the wound with antiseptic or alcohol. Place any cold object on the bite. Drink as much liquid as possible, i.e. plain water or parsley or cranberry tea.
