FWD: Take The Sting Out

Mosquito Season is Right Around the Corner

It’s about that time folks — so thought I’d send out this reminder!!!!
OK, mosquitoes..prepare to be repelled!!!!!

Use Bounce Fabric Softener Sheets…Best thing ever used in Louisiana..just wipe on & go..Great for Babies

Bob, a fisherman, takes one vitamin B-1 tablet a day April through October . He said it works. He was right.
Hasn’t had a mosquito bite in 33 years. Try it.
Every one he has talked into trying it works on them.
Vitamin B-1( Thiamine Hydrochloride 100 mg.)

If you eat bananas, the mosquitoes like you, – something about the banana oil as your body processes it.
Stop eating bananas for the summer and the mosquitoes will be much less interested.

This is going to floor you, but one of the best insect repellents someone found (who is in the woods every day), is Vick’s Vaporub.

Plant marigolds around the yard, the flowers give off a smell that bugs do not like, so plant some in that garden also to help ward off bugs without using insecticides.

“Tough guy” Marines who spend a great deal of time “camping out” say that the very best mosquito repellant you can use is Avon Skin-So-Soft bath oil mixed about half and half with alcohol.

One of the best natural insect repellants that I’ve discovered is made from the clear real vanilla. This is the pure Vanilla that is sold in Mexico. It works great for mosquitoes and ticks, don’t know about other insects.

When all else fails–get a frog

Fight West Nile..pass this along to all your friends in skeeter land!!!
