Natural Mosquito Repellent Recipes and Other Ways to Deter Biting Insects

Another pinner said: DIY bug spray- repinned this once but doing it again because I tried this and and am happy with results! The oils I used were citronella, lemongrass, and a little tea tree. I don't know about other bugs, but helped with mosquitos. Happy to not be spraying the DEET! Tea tree is supposed to help with chiggers and ticks- but I have only tested on the patio for mosquitos.

kill mold!!!Mix 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil per 1 cup of water. Spray onto the surface with mold and allow to dry, do not rinse. This will kill the mold spores without creating harsh chemical fumes as other cleaners, such as bleach, would.

Making a Mosquito Trap

Take that mosquitos!- Mosquito trap - Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.

If this works, it's gonna be a great summer! RECIPE to get rid of MOSQUITOES for up to 80 days! 1 large bottle mint flavored mouthwash, 3 cups Epsom Salts, 3, 12 oz cans cheap, stale beer. Mix together till salt dissolves, put in spray bottle and spray around patio, pool, porch, etc. Will not harm pets, kids, or plants, and guaranteed to last up to 80 days. Heading out right now to get these ingredients! (This is from Paul Harvey, radio.....many, many years ago).
