      DIY Mosquito Trap: Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly.

    Keep this in mind if you start seeing lots of spiders around your place. Natural spider killer or preventer... take one cup of vingar, one cup of pepper, a teaspoon of oil and liquid soap.

    We use this in mosquito season. In the beginning of the season and towards the middle. Just spread it on your lawn and call it a day.

    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!! - Click image to find more Gardening Pinterest pins

    This is how i made my baby wipes 12 years ago and thought i was the only one making cleaning wipes too. ---video how to make-bleach wipes,baby wipes, glass wipes, and hand sanitizing wipes. each batch costs about 75 cents to make. For mom

    Definitely gonna make a bunch of these! My house/ woods are full of Mosquitos right now!!! Recycled 2-liter mosquito trap! cut of the top and glue or tape the pieces together, then fill with 1 cup water mixed w/ half packet of yeast and 1/2 cup sugar. Mosquitos are drawn to the CO2 we exhale, and since yeast produces CO2 they will go right for it and not be able to escape. GENIUS!!

    Saving this idea for the Cold Days ahead! Hate scraping off ice! Ice Proofing the Car Windows with 2/3 Vinegar 1/3 water! Just spray on windows and ice will melt away! Totally making a bottle of this for this winter!
