    I am going to try this. With Spring in the air I need all the help I can get to be rid of all the mosquitoes that we seem to have.

    I have been using this ALL Summer since I first discovered it and I have to tell you that I am AMAZED at how well it works. Our house borders a small pond and normally we get wicked chewed up by the mosquitos. Thank you Liss!

    This is wonderful, thank you so much!! I can't wait to give it a try and have it 'steeping' in the cupboard as I type. Liss do you by any chance have a fly repellant or would this work for them as well? We live out in the middle of a farming countryside, and we seem to get over-run with flies (blue bottles, house flies, horseflies, you name 'em, we've probably got them) and they come in the house when we have the doors or windows open, which drives me (and the dog) nuts. We use those horrible sticky traps (which is just disgusting and I hate hearing them trying to get free, makes me feel horribly cruel) and I hate splatting them with the fly swatter and getting bug guts on the wall or where ever...just EWWW...so any idea how to keep these awful creatures, which I'm sure have some good reason for being on our planet earth, out of my house? Thanks!!

    Check the top of the page on the right upper corner. I understand you have to have the latest version of Java installed to see it.

    I will have to try this... I wonder if drinking catnip tea and perspiring it would do the same thing as spraying it on?

    Is vinegar the only medium suitable to mix the catnip with? Would something like witch hazel work as well?

    I don't have Java enabled, apparently. Can anyone tell me the recipe and if I can just buy catnip essential oil and mix with whatever medium/carrier liquid is recommended? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, you'll need to enable java to view it, this was done to prevent the recipe from being copied & pasted all over the internet.
