    Mosquito Deterrent

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

    The mosquitos love it, and they'll drop dead within a few feet.

      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.

      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.
