I don’t know if this is an urban myth or not, but it landed in my Inbox. Posting this in the dead of winter … will mean that I need to remember it for the spring. I have not dealt with mosquitoes for a few years, and expect them in droves in the summer:
I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well.. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children’s swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don’t leave home without it
We will see.
