The best way of getting rid of mosquitoes is
Listerine, the original medicinal type. The 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.
It kills them instantly. It really doesn't take
much, and it is a big bottle so it is not as expensive to use as the can of
spray you buy that doesn't last 30 minutes. 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.
