    Place several drops of lemon joy dish detergent on a white paper plate with 2 tsp of water on it.

      I have also heard that if you spray your patio furniture with Listerine, you will never have another mosquito in the area. Until it rains of course. They you would need to re-apply.

      Listerine did not work for me but I will try the Joy. I think I'm also going to try lemon grass.

      Hi, we live in FL. Does this work and if so I really would use this as they love to bite me outside and inside my house.

      I'll try! Let's see what happens ^__^ my poor daughter gets the worst of it. Bites everywhere that get super swollen. So we spend crazy money on bug sprays and cortisones.

      Actually the most effective remedy we know of that is all natural is this homemade mosquito repellent:

      We have acreage that is heavily wooded. Ticks and mosquitoes are a big issue. Hate using deet sprays. The best alternative we have found is a massage oil containing eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil. We rub ourselves all over with this (including a light brush on the hair) and do not have an issue with skeeters nor ticks. Our original source for this has dried up, however I have located a store that contains the components, am going to try to mix my own. If I get a working formula will post it, but similar concoctions should be out there
