Spray this natural mixture on your clothes, shoes, or skin to keep ticks away! The scent repels the ticks. It's been working great for me so far, haven't seen one tick yet and I live in New England where Lyme disease is very common.
Mesquitoes DO NOT LIKE the SMELL of MINT. I spray store brand MINT Listerine on my patio and my body/clothes and it WORKS! I feel better about SKIN CONTACT with Listerine than BUG CHEMICALS. Even better, just keep some potted mint leaves near the windows.
Fly and mosquito repellent. 25 drops lavender oil, 1 cup water in a spray bottle. Shake well before spraying. Spray on skin and clothing. Safe for children and pets. Use on any surface, such as tables, tents, chairs, etc.
Who knew.... Wasp Trap and Killer - Fill the bottom of the bottle with one fourth of a cup of water, one teaspoon of dish soap, one teaspoon of sugar, and a teaspoon of alcohol. The soap and alcohol will kill wasps, and the sugar will attract wasps to your trap.
