Best thing I learned this Summer: mosquito repellant
Got this idea from my neighbor who researched mosquito repellents, looking for something natural that won't cause cancer and still be effective. Catnip! I got an empty spray bottle, jar of organic dried catnip from the pet department at wal-Mart, and a big bottle of rubbing alcohol. Add a bunch of catnip and alcohol to the spray bottle, let it sit overnight, and voila, mosquito repellent that is super-cheap, has no scent after the alcohol dries, is comfortable to wear in the heat, and safe. This has been my best, least mosquito-bitten summer yet. If it is a super-mosquito infested area, some Repel (lemongrss oil) on the feet might be necessary too.
