This is the land of 10,000 lakes and Billions of mosquitoes. I found a recipe for a natural bug spray without harmful Deet..it works very well. I just went to the mailbox, no bites! Jim is covered with welts from bites; he wears long sleeves, long pants and netting and still gets bitten. This morning and afternoon he used this spray and has had no more trouble!
1 Tablespoon of vinegar
water to fill rest of container. Use a colored glass spray bottle size 4 ounce
I got my supplies from a health food store; total cost was around $28---sounds expensive, but I have enough to last the entire summer, and to make some for the kids too! After measuring out all those "drops"--the bottles have very little used. It is easy to make, just turn the bottle upside down and count the drops! Kay
