It is the season for WI state insect..Does anyone use the clip on ones to stay bite free? I used to be able to find "insect incense) that I could light and it would smudge and clear an area..haven't seen in years.
Already donated blood this AM..could use help.

White or apple cider vinegar works well for me. Either dab it or put it in a spray bottle and spray it on skin and clothing. Spray a lot of it and reapply it fairly frequently.

Witch hazel in a quart spray bottle cut with half water to which about 30-50 drops of an essential oil like citronella, eucalyptus or clove is added works well.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
