I have recently been away in Corfu at The Rou Estate which is a total paradise in the mountains, on the north east coast of the island. However in the past I have been bitten by mosquitoes which is natural for any hot country. However this year I went armed with this recipe for a homemade mosquito spray. I have used it liberally around the outside area that we sit in and none of us have been bitten! It has been a joy as there is nothing worse and in the past the itching from the bites have woken me during the night.
So here is the recipe for the mosquito spray and do not ask me how anyone found that this combination of ingredients worked but it does.
- 3 cups of Epsom salts
- Big bottle (475 mls approx) of cheap mint mouthwash
- 3 stale 350ml cheap beer.
Mix these three together until the salts are dissolved. Spray anywhere you sit outside, around pools. It will not harm plants or flowers. The mosquitoes will disappear from that area for approx. 80 days. This means you need to spray your decking area twice a summer. The stronger you mix the longer it will last. The bonus is that this mosquito spray has a nice mint smell for that area!
