Recently, I came across an article wrote by a local gal who unfortunately suffered the West Nile Virus due to a mosquito bite. She offered the following solution to getting rid of these nasty insects.
Here it is:
Big Bottle of Blue Mouthwash
3 cups of Epsom Salt
3 stale 12oz beers
Mix those three ingredients together until the salt is dissolved
Spray anywhere you sit outside, around pools, will not harm plants or flowers. The mosquitoes will be gone from the area for up to 80 days.
They leave the area that you spray and don’t come back. The stronger the mix the longer it lasts! Mosquitoes and bugs hate it!
