Getting rid of mosquitoes


Summer is here and with it - those pesky critters.

Mosquito The best way of getting rid of mosquitoes is Listerine, the original medicinal type. The Dollar Store-type works, too. I heard that there was someone 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, Don't leave home without it...
