Not sure where to post this but it should be usefull to those that Camp a lot.
I just thought I'd share this since we have a mosquito problem here...and Listerine has no DDT in it, which is nicer for spraying on your children!
The best way of getting rid of mosquitoes is Listerine, the
original medicinal type. (The cheap Dollar Store-type works, too.)
I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared.
The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing water nearby.
During the summer, I don't leave home without it.....
Pass it on to everyone you care about....
A FRIEND'S COMMENTS:
I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors. It works -
in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it cost me $1.89. It really doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not as expensive to use as the can of spray you buy that doesn't last 30 minutes. So, try this, please. It will last a couple of days.
Don't spray directly on a wood door (like your front door), but
spray around the frame. Spray around the window frames, and even inside the dog house if you have one.
