Take the Bite out of Summer - The Mosquito Authority


What is a mosquito's favorite sport?  Skin-diving!  What's worse than picnicking with a million mosquitoes?  The stink of DEET and citronella overpowering the sweet smells of your backyard summer event.  So how Mosquito Authoritydo you reclaim your yard from these dangerous, bloodsucking pests without repelling people and pets?  With a barrier spray program from The Mosquito Authority.  Imagine, no more bug repellent on the kids ... no more citronella torches or candles ... just mosquito free outdoor living.  Franchise owners Jenny and Joel Denny were so satisfied as customers of The Mosquito Authority that they brought the service to the Raleigh area.  They know it works and stand behind the "no mosquito guarantee".


Great for Kids ... Great for Pets ... Bad for Mosquitoes!  The Mosquito Authority starts with an all natural chemical free treatment of theKids on lawn mosquito habitat around your home that dramatically reduces the population. Next, they locate the areas where mosquitoes hide as they wait for their next victim and apply a light mist of a very mild insecticide formulated to repel mosquitoes for the next three weeks. This barrier spray formula is so specialized that beneficial insects such as honey bees, ladybugs, and butterflies will return and be totally unaffected by the repellent effect.  Finally, they return every three weeks throughout mosquito season to reapply.


Special Event Sprays and MistAway:  Nothing ruins an outdoor Outdoor partygathering faster than swarms of biting mosquitoes.  The Mosquito Authority offers a special event spray service the evening before, or morning of the event. Everyone in attendance will appreciate the absence of these flying pests.   For those that want mosquito control in their own hands, the company offers MistAway, the revolutionary automatic misting system that virtually disappears into your landscape.


Buzz Off!  So take the bite out of summer with one call to The Mosquito Authority. Over 18.8 million (and counting) mosquitoes killed this year.

Seasonal Accessories - Get them while they're Hot!

Keep your cool as the summer heat soars with some of the Triangle's hottest accessories.

Shady Lady: Brim hats are in and oh so chic! The super-sized chapeauBeleza Flyingnun hat offers sun protection and with the flexible brim it's easy to pack and shape to flatter any style you desire. Available at: Beleza in Cameron Village.

We tip our hat to Michael Stars for the fab fedora! Wear this woven wonder, made with lightweight paper straw and you'll make heads turn, as you keep your cool. Available at: Certain Things in Cameron Village and North Michael Stars fedoraHills.  Certain Things has several styles of straw, summer beach hats.  Go check them out. Great for sun protection and style!

Shady Business: You could grab attention the new-fashioned way: shaving your head, or busting out of rehab.  But why not try it the old-fashioned way, in a pair of vintage looking shades?  From the '60s through the '80s, think cool aviators andTom Ford sunglasses Jackie O. styles. Dramatic round shapes by Tom Ford and D&G win big with the ladies. Playboy types go Miami Vice in Ray-Ban's with changeable lenses or Steve McQueen in elusive Persols. Available at: Sunglass Hut at Crabtree Valley Mall.

See and be seen without doing damage to your permanent record.

Cover Story: Core-blimey! It's summertime and that means one thing: Sarongtime to hit the beach and freak out that you're practically naked! In public! Rookie mistake #1: The towel wrapped around your butt is a dead giveaway that you're hiding something. Why else would you be wearing it? Expert solution #1: Wrap yourself in a colorful sarong, a perfect summer cover-up - without any half-assed notions about why you have it on.  It'll cover what you want to hide and enhance what you want to show. Available at: Pink Alli at Stone Creek Village in Cary and Bijuju in North Hills.

The Right Foot: Summer shoes have high expectations of your feet.  Open-toe slingbacks, flip-flops, wedge heels. You're footing theEliza B Sandals bill for weekly pedicures just to stay presentable.  But what do you demand of your shoes? Not much, by the looks of those four-inch python stilettos. 

Here are some colorful choices that are comfortable and casual for your summer looks.  Eliza B's fit is much more like a tailored English shoe and not at all like your typical "loose" flip flop fit.  These look great while you stay comfortable. And... they are made in the USA! Available at:  CoolSweats at the Lassiter, North Hills.
Soludos in a variety of colors are the espadrilles that prove the more you wear them the better they fit and feel. Available at: Uniquities in Cameron Village, North Hills and Chapel Hill.

Mystique sandals can dress up your outfits with its embellished stones and beads. And TKEES come in a variety of colors will take you to the pool and shops without missing a step. Both of these available at: Kristens's Shoe Boutique at Renaissance Park Place in Cary.TKEES

A tip from Nancy Bolen: Dark Chocolate May Boost Vision and Brain Function - New research has given you more reason to reach into your box of dark chocolates-powering vision and brain performance as early as 2 and a half hours after eating them!

If the taste and the cardiovascular benefits weren't temptation enough, a new study published in Physiology & Behavior shows consumption of antioxidants in dark chocolate, called cocoa flavanols (CF, improves visual and cognitive function in young adults. Thanks Nancy!

TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
