Pinner says: Swarms of Mosquitoes on my patio led me to an old home remedy - Did you know that chopped up garlic makes mosquitoes disappear? I buy minced, dried garlic at local Fiesta grocery stores and sprinkle it around on my patio. I have to stand back as I am using it - mosquitoes will literally swarm out of your plants and bushes to get away from the smell. Works like a charm!!
Listerine (the amber color) works great to keep skeeters away from your yard. Spray it on the grass, in the bushes, around doors, on lawn chairs and patio. let it sit for a half hour and no skeeters. We have been using this for two years now and I am still amazed at how well it works. The smell doesn't last, but lack of skeeters does. For us it worked for almost two days.
Mosquito Barrier:"Just one spraying will keep mosquitoes, ticks and fleas out of your yard and away from your home, 24 hours a day for nearly a month...a very strong liquid garlic made from very potent garlic cloves. does not harm humans or pets or plants, but to mosquitoes it can be deadly. Odor becomes undetectable to humans within minutes.
Definitely worth a try!
