Secrets of Success

Mosquitoes - That Time Of Year!




A GREAT repellent is BOUNCE (in the orange box). It contains white oleander and mosquitoes HATE the smell. Tie one on you & you wonít be bothered by them. Wipe outside walls & surfaces like decks & cushion covers & youíll never see them. Donít use heavily perfumed shampoos, lotions, hairsprays or deodorants.They also LOVE dark colored clothes, so don't wear.

  • Be careful if you have pets. Fabric softener sheets can be deadly for them - both some of the ingredients and also if they swallow them, they cause obstructions. (I guess they smell good and the dogs want to eat them) - by EMMAINTERESTING
