Mosquito Remedy

A friend sent this mosquito remedy to us. We will try it to see if it works. Of course now we have our patio screened in so we can enjoy outside anyway. We are enjoying the rain today inside and out. Everything seems so fresh and clean! Malcolm is camping out in the screened in patio and enjoying the cool temps and the great outdoors!

Pass this on to anyone who likes sitting out in the evening or when they are having a cook out. So you don't like those pesky mosquitoes, especially now that they have the potential to carry the West Nile Virus???
Here is a tip that was given at a recent gardening forum.
Put some water in a white dinner plate and add a couple drops of Lemon Fresh Joy Dish Detergent. Set the dish on your porch, patio or other outdoor area. Not sure what attracts them, the lemon smell, the white plate color, or what, but mosquitoes flock to it and drop dead shortly after drinking the Lemon Fresh Joy/water mixture, and usually within about
10 feet of the plate. Check this out - it works just super!!!
May seem trivial, but it may help control mosquitoes around your home especially in the South and elsewhere where West Nile Virus is reaching epidemic proportions in mosquitoes, birds and humans.
