Mosquito spray

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on June 2, 2009

Tested out my Mosquito spray tonite. They have been riding in on the dogs so I thought I would try a little garlic spray on their coats to see if it would work. After I sprayed them, on a hunch, I sprayed my own arms and legs as well. We walked out at sunset and it worked just fine. The mosquitos flew around me but didn’t land. I don’t know if it works for very long, but it worked fine this evening. We’ll see how the long term goes. To make my garlic spray, I simply took one clove of garlic, cut into quarters and pressed through the garlic press. Then I microwaved the pulp with a cup of water for 4 minutes. I let this cool and strained into a spray bottle. Knock wood, it works fine.
