LISTERINE!! any color/flavor. Pour it full strength in good sturdy spray bottle. Spray around your tent site & picnic table or patio & lawn chairs. (I mean saturate the ground and you can spray a little on things that you don't mind getting the mist in). You will be amazed! No Mosquitoes, no no-see-ems/gnats. You will have to repeat after rain or if animals stir up the dirt a lot. This is safe for kids, dogs and it doesn't have the stickiness or chemical smell. Try it!
Has anyone tried this? Mosquito Spray. Pinner says: I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well!
Homemade Basil Mosquito Spray - I never knew that Basil had the ability to keep these nasty, disease carrying mosquito's away! I hate putting chemicals on my body and the stuff you buy from the store can add up and end up costing you a fortune. This is an excellent natural alternative.
