Just wondering if people are doing anything for them?
We’re having some Cutter or Off sprays available in these guest comfort baskets that we’re having stationed around near the bathrooms (also with aspirin, Tylenol, band aids, etc.). Should we also have citronella torches or candles, or what?

I would go with the torches as a bug zapper would be annoying as hell and the bug repellent is full of toxins (you couldn’t pay me to use ’em) and who want to use repellents at a wedding!
I used to trap mosquitoes to check for the West Nile Virus several summers ago. I learned several tricks to keep them off me. Now I live with a stream in my back yard and vernal ponds (wetlands) in my front yard and have yet to get a single bite this summer!

I was at an outdoor wedding a few weeks ago and they didn’t have anything. The mosquitoes weren’t really a problem, but the flies…. Oh boy…

Well… since I am the biggest mosquito magnet around, I could probably keep the mosquitos away from everyone else!
We have TERRIBLE asian tiger mosquitos around our home/neighborhood and citronella torches (aka tiki torches) worked well. We used 8 of them for our backyard BBQ, and 2 of the candles on the tables. I also put on bug spray and managed not to get eaten alive.
I had not planned to provide bug spray, but that’s not a bad idea…

Many venues spray before a big event.

I guess I haven’t thought of that!

I am getting those OFF! Tiki Torches and then giving my guests some OFF! spray….Still that won’t help with the other bug problem like flies and stuff I am still trying to figure out how to help with that problem.

Hmm ok, I just put some citronella torches on my list of things to get. We can use those after the wedding too! We also just bought an OFF lantern for our porch at home, but why not use it for the wedding too?
