You'd be welcome anytime! Just remember that you will be lumpy and short a pint or two of blood by the end of any day outside!

Oh, man. Just played at a dance in cottage country last night. It had to be the worst night ever for mosquitos in my entire life. It is hell when you are sitting in one place and can't move for an hour at a time. They even bit my nose...

Are they worse than usual in Ont too? This is the worst I can remember seeing them. I just tried a tip a guy told me about in line at Home Depot and it seems to work! You put green Listerine in a spray bottle and spray your grass or the areas where the mosquitos congregate and it seems to drive them off. It works a little bit anyway. I did around my front door so I can get into the house without getting chomped and its better. I'm still contemplating doing the lawn...thats a lot of area to spray and I know I'll get munched before its done. Might be worth it though.

Hey...this is a dinner thread...I guess I was dinner!

I am going to spray that stuff all over myself next weekend. We play outside again. May kill the B.O. too.

Not on YOU! Its sticky! Spray it around where you will be playing though. That should help a bit.

It's been written... so it must be true ... that dryer sheets will keep the skeeters away. A couple hanging from your pockets I guess. I never tried it myself, but that's what "they" say

Its not sweating, its mosquitoes. I mean swarms of mosquitoes. Like can't walk 10 feet from car to front door without being eaten alive.

I'd need to cover myself with them. I'll give it a go though. Can't hurt to try it! The DEET just barely keeps me sane long enough to go from door to door.

I'm told they keep mice from building nests in snowblowers and such, too, Alix.
I just never hear of anyone actually trying them, lol.
