Are you worried about unwanted, buzzing and stinging guests disrupting your company picnic this summer? We tested a three ingredient home remedy for keeping mosquitoes away that has been making the rounds on social media lately, and it really does work. It’s said that an application lasts 2 to 3 months. It’s been a little over a month since we applied the mixture, and it’s still fending off the mosquitoes very successfully. The best part about it is that is perfectly safe for use on grass, flowers and plants, and it won’t harm children or pets.
Just mix, spray and watch the mosquitoes go away.
- 1 bottle of mint mouthwash
- 3 bottles or cans of stale beer (open a day before mixing and leave out over night)
- 3 cups of Epsom salt
How to Mix Mosquito Spray
Pour beer, mouthwash and Epsom salt into a large pitcher. Stir until salt is thoroughly dissolved. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Shake well before use.
How to Apply Mosquito Spray
Spray the mixture on grass and plants all around the area where your company picnic will be held. Spray it around picnic tables, benches, chairs and outdoor games. If your company picnic is going to be at someone’s home, you can even spray the mixture on decks and concrete patios, and around swimming pools. Do make sure to allow the treated areas to dry before your picnic starts.
