Woody's "Martha Stewart Moment": Announcing a cheap, environmentally neutral Mosquito Spray

My pal, elldeedvm, the vet in the east mountains, sends this long. Absent my old pal, the mad vet of the prairies, EllDee's my source for wisdom biological:

Subject: MOSQUITO SPRAY I can't wait to try this in the summer! I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared.The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don't leave home without it.....Pass it on.

------------------OUR FRIEND'S COMMENTS:I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors. It works - in fact,it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it cost me$1.89. It really doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so itis not as expensive to use as the can of spray you buy that doesn't last30 minutes. So, try this, please. It will last a couple of days. Don'tspray directly on a wood door (like your front door), but spray aroundthe frame. Spray around the window frames, and even inside the dog house
