Smoke From the Fire Keeps Bugs Away

Custom built gas fire pit to scare off mosquitoes in Grand Haven, MI.

When it comes to spending time outdoors at night during the summer, one of, if not the only negative thing about it is the bugs. Bugs in Michigan can be a real nuisance, and they can force you inside before you are ready. However, when you invest in a fire pit, you are also investing in a bug deterrent. If the fire pit that you have installed on your property is wood-burning, then the smoke that it emits will act as a natural deterrent for bugs, mosquitoes in particular. This is just one of the many great reasons to have a fire pit installed on your property.

Mosquito season in Michigan runs from March all the way through November.

Summer nights are more fun when you spend them with family and friends around a fire pit.

And, it provides the perfect atmosphere for telling scary stories if that's something that you are into.
