Love the Summer, Hate the Mosquitos!

I love being outdoors, especially evenings, even more so before a thunderstorm    But  mosquitoes and I do not see eye to eye.   They bite me and I cant bite them back.
We found this on Facebook today, maybe it might help

Mosquito Yard Spray 
  •  BIG bottle blue cheap
  • 3 cups of Epsom salt
  • 3 stale 12 oz cheap beer

Mix those three ingredients togteher untl the salt is dissolved.  Spray anywhere you sit outside, around pools, will not harm plants or flowers

Mosquitoes gone from that area for approximately 80 days.  I spray my deck all my sitting areas twice a summer.  Go out and sit and your underwear all the time at night and never get bit.  They leave that area you spray and will not come back.

Been using this mixture for the last 15 years.  It works  Heard about this on a Paul Harvey segment years ago, thats how I was informed about it.  And it works well. All my friends that have tried it can not believe it works.  The stronger you mix, the longer it lasts

and bugs hate it… Nice mint smell

    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.

    Seriously my son owns a place by a river and those bugs drive us nuts. When the sun is going down they come out in full force ruining our favorite place the porch where we love to watch the deer, rabbits, wild turkeys and the beautiful sunset but it is a nightmare with those bugs. 
    We will be forever grateful to you if it works and also the savings in the tons of repellent we have bought over the years.
    Thanks once again for a great post, I cannot wait to tell him to mix it up. 
    PS: I bet there are a lot of great ideas out there for posts to help with things like this.

    if you didn't know mudbugs couldn't fly, you probably wouldn't know if it was a mosquito or a crawdad coming at you!! lol

    peppermint spray also works well keeping rodents away.  i made some using essential peppermint oil and water (i put about 20 drops of oil in spray bottle of water), and have had really great luck keeping the little buggers out of our pantry!

    Yes, I've used Essential Peppermint oil for years now.  I put a few drops on a cotton ball, lay them around the basement floor.   Works pretty good
