Here's a little something that I received in an email,and thought I would pass it on to all of my Brothers & Sisters.

Hint for campers, back yards and picnics in the park!

I can't wait to try this in the summer!

I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were
having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck
floor with Listerine, and the little demo ns disappeared.
The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it
around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well. It
worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the
children's swing area, and the standing water nearby.
During the summer, I don't leave home without it.....Pass
it on.

OUR FRIEND'S COMMENTS:
I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors. It
works - in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target
and it cost me $1.89. It really doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle,
too; so it is not as expensive to use as the can of spray you buy that
doesn't last 30 minutes. So, try this, please. It will last a couple of
days. Don't spray directly on a wood door (like your front door), but spray
around the frame. Spray around the window frames, and even inside the dog
house

Used a lot of stuff. But the best is ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent
Turn it on and the bugs are gone.
http://www.mosquitorepellent.com/ WE use it camping and in the boat. And within a 15 ft circle it takes care of the Mosquito's.\
But I sure thank you for this post. I will give it a try. May have to mix up 15 gallons and spray the whole camp site.:cool2:

I will have to 3rd or 4th(whatever number we are at) the thermacell.
It works great and you do not have to spray the crap all over yourself.
Which brings up another very good point. It may just be me but how does everyone else's success rate end up if your not careful to keep smells like bug spray off your hands? I know it has killed a good bite for me in the past, at least until I figured out the issue.:sad2::crazy::eek:oooh:

Dear Brother Gordhawk;
Glenn I've NOT heard of the Listerine idea but you can bet when the season gets here that I WILL give it a try! "Thank You for sharing":big_smile:
If it works as good as you say it does then I will remember it and put it in my notes so I will have the information available the next time I teach an Outdoor Survival Class! :)
"THX Again"
Fraternally,
Coyote1

I learned a long time ago that suntan lotion and bug spray to two quick and effective ways of turn the bite completely off. If you are fishing with luers and end up getting something like bull frog sun block on them you need to wash the lure with soap and water to get it off because that stuff is pretty good about being waterproof.

I've can't say for sure if it'll effect catfish but I am certain that speckled trout and redfish don't like the taste of bullfrog or deepwoods off.

I'll have to try that one. Haven't heard of it. I have used the Bounty dryer sheets. Tuck one in your pocket. It definitely helps!

I also have used the little citronella coils. Put one around each of my ankles and those do pretty good too. They are like the coil keychains and stretch and last months.

Our experiences were while catfishing and I think it killed the bite. I made a new thread so not to get off subject here. :big_smile:
