Fly repellent - pinner said "I had to repin this again for you to see. YES IT WORKS! Oh my, it looks hokie but our temps have been upper 90's and no flies in my back yard have been spotted. I spoke with a women who grew up on a dairy farm and she swears by it. She said they used 5 pennies. Go figure."
Orajel for Mosquito Bites- This is a sure fix for mosquito bites. Every time you get bitten by a mosquito, use Orajel or any toothache gel medicine and it works! It stops the itching instantly and will not itch again. It isn't greasy, sticky, or smelly. It's convenient to put right in your pocket :)
Plant lemon grass for privacy and to keep the mosquitos away .All Chinese grocery stores have them. They do not have visible roots so just peel off the base, cut the stem in half and soak in water for 1-2 weeks. If you buy 5 or more bunches for bushy effect. For best result in rooting, start them around 3rd or last week of April when the weather is warm enough.
