I know to use Epsom salts, mouthwash(cheap) and cheap beer. I wish for the amount of Epsom salts , and HOW STALE must the beer become? Thanks so much, again, M.D.

    I'm not familiar with this recipe, but have you tried essential oils? The CDC recommends a lemon & eucalyptus blend. I mix 2-3 drops of every EO I have that has bug-repelling properties with water in a mister spray bottle. Shake before use. It works great.

    From the internet: MOSQUITO YARD SPRAY Big bottle Blue cheap mouthwash 3 cups of Epsom salt, 3 stale 12 oz cheap beer mix those three ingredients together until salt is dissolved... Spray anywhere you sit outside , around pools , will not harm plants or flowers...
    Stale beer, huh? Well if it sits out and gets warm it may be considerered "stale" or maybe collect the dregs in the bottom of cans and bottles. Good luck!
