Mosquitos are annoying little bugs that in numbers can drive a man mad. Not to mention they spread disease. The typical bug spray, as effective as it is smells bad and has a harmful chemical in it called deet that will strip paint and dyes of some materials. Imagine what that does to your skin! Heres how to make an all natural bug spray out of common household fruits.

Step 1: Gather Citrus Fruit

Lemons, limes, oranges, clemontomes, tangerines, and grapefruits will all work.

I will add a warning for those that are allergic to citrus

If you guys are really worried about lawyers, lawsuits and such, then let us make some considerations: first, people who are allergic to citrus, know that from early age and are probably very careful not to use or eat these fruits. Second, they probably know all these fruits by name. Third, if they still use or consume those fruits, then they are either suicidal types or they really need the money from the lawsuit. Finally, if you make it, use it on you, don't offer it to anybody else unless you have had a lemonade or two with him or her...

Thanks for the comment. I never knew people were allergic to citrus. And the oils are some what harmful to clothing, but it cant be worse than deet which is in commercial bug spray.

Two minor comments:
One: this maybe deadly to people who are allergic to citrus.
Two: citrus oils also will dissolve some clothing dyes. It's used as a grease and oil solvent. Environmentally friendly tho.
