Mosquito Control - 04/21/08 02:00 AM

I recently read some fluff article about Listerine and Mosquito Control.

So - here's the "scoop":

You put Listerine in a spray bottle and spray the area that you're sitting in. Voila - no mosquitoes.

Is this total bull*****??? Just wondering if anybody down there has tried it.

Should be interesting....

Total BS - unless you plan on killing the mossies by drowning them in the stuff...

I figured anything that easy wouldn't work!

Looks like more slap and scratch in the days to come.

(No jokes ya'll)

On AC they haven't been as bad this year, not sure why we've had plenty of rain.

Probably because we've had some pretty steady winds. Lets hope the wind keeps up!

I am planning on conducting a scientific experiment this summer on the 1000’s of nats, flies, wasp, bees, ants, and unknowns that invade my mountain hide away. I’ve already purchased 2 gallons of generic Listerine and 10 spray bottles. I will vary the concentration and the application time will be recorded. I will report on my finding to the “board”, Snopes and Urban Myth Busters.
I need something to do this summer until I can get back to Ambergris Caye!!
