I’ve already packed lots of little squirt bottles of Listerine for our upcoming camping excursion this weekend. If anyone goes through my purse they may wonder if I have either a drinking problem or a major case of chronic halitosis! Rest assured neither is the case. However, if we were to get mauled by a bear, I’ve read somewhere that if you have really fresh breath and you breathe in their face really hard, that bears become so mesmerized by it, that it will stop them dead in their tracks! Ok, not really!

My mom reticently sent me this email on Listerine and mosquitoes. I NEVER use bug spray because of all the chemicals and have tried some natural repellants but found them to be a waste of time and money. I thought I would give it a try. If nothing else,if I do get attacked by a bear I can spray it in the face with it, like Pepper Spray and run like heck!

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
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.
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 it is not as expensive to use as the
can of spray you buy that doesn’t last 30 minutes. So, try this, please. It
will last a couple of days. Don’t spray directly on a wood door (like your
front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window frames, and
even inside the dog house.
