Ep. 66 Your Guide To Spring

In This Episode

So before we have to deal with the alien invasion that is definitely going to be June’s dot in 2020 bingo, Neal and Daena wanted to talk about some remedies for Spring and Summer’s usual scourges – poison ivy and bugs.

This is a sore spot for Daena because she spent every summer from age five to thirteen covered in poison ivy from head to toe.

Neal explains how we catch poison ivy, how it spreads, and offers up some remedies – both natural and less-than-natural.

Then they get into different types of bug spray and which plants work the best to repel which bug.
