Combat mosquitos

Was told today that a good way to combat mosquitos, is to use Listerine mouth wash. Pour some into a squirt container and spray it around the area that you are sitting in. Its suppose to work for hours??

( also can be used for bad breath )

Tried the Listerine trick, mixed reviews on the effectiveness, but it sure smelled nice around the campsite.

Thermacell is the way to go. We have four of them. Each one covers a 15x15 area. If you keep a watch on amazon you can find the value refills for 10 dollars.

The Off Clip On units work quite well if you are not moving around very fast.

I have heard of the Listerine trick and been meaning to try it. The people who told me about it swear it works.

I agree with Great Horned Owl. The clip on works surprisingly well.

I'll second the Thermacell. I used spray on, clip on and nothing compares to the Thermacell. I have the lantern that's led and it works great.
