You may not be aware of this, How to Kill Mosquitoes, gnats and flies – NOT A JOKE
I can’t wait to try this in the summer it has been a god send! I was at a friend party in her garden the other week, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone, if you have ever been bitten by these little blighter’s you will know how annoying the itch is, and the temptation not to scratch is unbearable. An insect bite or sting often causes a small, red lump on the skin, which may be painful and itchy, Mosquitoes don’t cause major harm in the UK, but in some parts of the world they can spread serious illnesses such as malaria
My good friend Paul who was hosting the party sprayed the grass and patio with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared.
Yesterday I filled an empty spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes, gnats and even flies. And voila! That worked as well.. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children’s swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I won’t be leaving the house without my trusty spray bottle of minty fresh Listerine.
