The best way to get rid of mosquitoes is Listerine, the original medicinal
type. The Dollar Store-type works, too. I was at a deck party a while 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.
OUR 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 doghouse if you have one.
