16. Natural Bug Repellant
It is highly unlikely you will have bug spray on you while you’re in a survival situation. Even if you do, it’ll eventually run out or you may have bigger uses for it. However, you shouldn’t fear if you don’t have any or run out! One of the ways to survive when lost is all about keeping bugs away.
There are two ways to help with this. The first is using ash from your campfire. Smoke from the fire will keep most bugs away but ash can help with this too. If that fails, cover your exposed body in mud. Bugs cannot cause any issues with your skin this way and even if they try to bite, the mud will prevent them from sticking into your skin.
