Just spray the room with something, doesn’t even have to be bug killer, you can use hairspray, fabreeze, windex or whatever, the mesquito will die I’m sure…..

I found this in a blog:

“Mosquito Treatment: So you don’t like those pesky mosquitoes. Here’s 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 Fr R Set the dish on your porch, patio, picnic table, park bench, or other outdoor area. Not sure what attracts them, the lemon smell, the white plate colour, 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.

TRY IT—- it works just superb! It may seem trivial, but it may alsohelp to control mosquitoes around your home, (especially in areas where the West Nile virus is reaching epidemic proportions in mosquitoes, birds, and humans).”

That might be a tip for later, but I don’t have that stuff now. Well, I’m probably going to have to sleep now. Tomorrow I’ve to get out at 9:15 and now it’s 2:46…

Marina: what is Lemon Fr R?

@Seesul I didn’t want to change the text since it was a quote, but it is Lemon Fresh Joy.

Again, I call on gail, for this one, but don’t you then just use [sic] and correct it? I think there was a discussion on just that a while back, but I can’t find it.

Armed with this, maybe I should just bath in Lemon Fresh Joy before my adventure into mosquitoland this summer. Where I am going, they are considered the state bird…maybe I can just rent-a-bat.

Well, protrection of the body is a whole different thing. Kaas4 wanted to get the one buzzing in the bedroom (I hate that!).

I need serious help about that because in northern ontario the bugs are absolutely insane. Squishing them usually works but you’ll have to squish more and more and more. (PS and more)
