Introduction: Mosquito Control
Everyone hates having to abandon your yard at dusk being driven out by pesky mosquitoes. What is worse is the hefty price to have a yard pest company spray every month. Here is a homemade mosquito spray that controls mosquitoes in your yard for an entire month! Using household items, it is a fraction of the price of those yard pest companies plus it has no harsh chemicals as well as being safe for kids and pets.
Step 1: Materials
2 cups Epson salt
2 16 oz bottles of stale beer (flat and room temperature)
2 cups of blue mouthwash
Step 2: Add Stale Beer
Open 2 bottles of beer and leave out at room temperature for 24 hours. Once 24 hours have past, add beers to the pitcher.
Step 3: Epson Salt
Measure out 2 cups of Epson salt.
Step 4: Add Epson Salt to Pitcher
Slowly add 2 cups of Epson salt to pitcher that contains the beer.
Step 5: Disolve Epson Salt
Using the spoon, stir beer and Epson salt mixture until the salt is completely dissolved.
Step 6: Measure Blue Mouthwash
Measure out 2 cups of blue mouthwash.
Note: I have used both generic and name brand mouthwash in this recipe and both work equally as well.
Step 7: Add Mouthwash
Slowly add the mouthwash to the pitcher containing the beer and Epson salt mixture. Stir for 20 seconds to ensure mouthwash is fully incorporated.
Step 8: Pour Into Spray Bottle
Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and it is ready to battle those pesky mosquitoes.
Step 9: Spray Away
Generously spray throughout your yard, in your grass and landscaping. Spray around your deck, patio and yard furniture as well. Mosquitoes will stay away for approximately a month allowing your to enjoy the summer nights.
