Mosquitoes - That Time Of Year!

This Sparked Me!

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)
