Default OT - Mosquito tip

Something I read recently about controlling the little "buggers" -

Pass this on to anyone who likes being out in the evening or is having a
cook out. Here is a good thing for the summer, for those who like to sit/
enjoy the out of doors, but don't like those pesky mosquitoes. It was
given at a gardening forum: Put some water in a white dinner plate and add
just a couple of drops of Lemon Fresh Joy dishwashing soap. Set the dish
on a porch or patio. Not sure what attracts them, the lemon smell, the
white color, or what, but mosquitoes flock to it, and drop dead, or fall
into the water, or on the floor within about 10 ft. Works just super!
Enjoy the mosquito free summer.

Gosh, Janie ...

DROWING mosquitos? Aren't you afraid PETA will come after you?

I'd read that somewhere, too and was going to go looking for it. Glad YOU found it.

Of course, it's been too hot to be outside anyway.

Works like a charm! I have a bowl set up right next to my puter. My mosquito friends are drawn to it like happy hour on Fridays.

DoesnŽt get rid of all of them but it certainly helps!

Suzanne - maybe you should move it a little farther away from where you are actually sitting ... and then you can DROWN all the buggers.

No, Pam, I'm not afraid of PETA!
