    List of ingredients is too vague. There are lots of brands of blue mouthwash, all with different chemicals in them. Which one?

    Big bottle isn't specific enough. How many ounces?

    Where does a non-drinker get stale beer? I didn't even know beer could become stale!!

    LOL, you're really Overthinking the whole thing. 1.5L bottle of cheap blue minty mouthwash, like a bottle of equate brand (walmart brand). Open any cheap beer, like budweiser or natural lite and let them set half an hour= instant stale beer.

    The point of stale beer is so that they don't foam when you're mixing them up.

    This works a treat, I've used it for years. Use what you have & mix that shit up.
    ~Enjoy!~

    Sounds great. Will this work for flies too at a horse stable?

    Okay so it seems that it wouldn't matter if you cut the grass, as most people probably do that more than every 2 months, but what about if it rains? Is there anything like those that will waste it or cause it to not work?

    If you have a garden, you would not want to use this solution. Anything that deters or kills mosquitoes also deters or kills bees. Just something to consider...

    This post says the stronger you make it the longer it lasts. Please tell me how to make this mixture stronger? Which of the ingredients will do that?

    Gonna try this as soon as I get mouthwash. I can't wait to see if it really works. Right now, after a warm winter, I can't sit outside. Can the solution be this simple? We'll see. I have no complaints about this post because....I'm not looking for something to complain about.
