Hey guys, Ashley from Sugar & Cloth here! There are few things that I love more than dining al fresco (unless you count dining al fresco sans the crawling and flying critters)! As someone who lives in Houston, Texas – Trust me when I say that we have ALL the flying, crawling and stinging pests to be on the lookout for during the (even) warmer Texas months.
Zevo sprays are perfect for controlling the setting for any outdoor or indoor tablescape. As for those unexpected crawling and flying visitors, I grab the Multi-Purpose Ant, Roach, and Fly clear insect spray or the Flying Insect Spray to knock out bugs underneath the table and around the main seating areas. Unlike other traditional bug killer sprays, it has light scent, so it won’t bother or force you or your guests to leave the area!
I’m a gal allergic to bees, so I also keep the Wasp, Hornet, and Yellowjacket spray on hand throughout my outdoor patio parties. Nothing is worse than trying to enjoy a meal with family and friends and being worried about getting stung! If you’re one with this type of allergy, then I know you feel my pain!
Zevo has four formulas: crawling, flying, stinging, and multi-insect – and they’re all made with common essential oils (the active ingredients are cinnamon oil, lemongrass oil, and geraniol). What’s also great? Their sprays don’t have any synthetic pyrethroid chemicals, like imiprothrin or cypermethrin, like other insect killer sprays do. They’re safe for use around people and pets!
For my outdoor tablescape, I wanted to go for a tropical evening vibe, so we hung different tropical stems from underneath the umbrella and used fishing wire for a quick and easy statement piece for the table. With some battery lit lanterns, lots of textures and blooms on the table runner, flower stems, and of course, cocktails and appetizers – our outdoor patio party came together!
Thanks, Zevo for giving us a safe and effective bug killer for a convenient, bug-free life!
