GARLIC = NO MOSQUITOS You can use cloves or bottled garlic for this . I bought both , but used the ready to use minced garlic first. Place in an old plastic pan or lid . I place a little drop of water in the pan and stirred with a medium paint brush to release the aroma. Do this 3 times a day. I placed five pans around my 400 sq. ft. patio after four days of rain In Texas . Works like a charm. Place by the back entry for those mosquitos waiting to come inside. Fosterginger@Pinterest

Peppermint Lemon. Weird thought, I know.. but I used to get these at the renaissance fest. Its SOO refreshing and tasty. All it is is a lemon with the top cut off and part of a thick peppermint stick shoved in the middle. The candy is porous and works as a straw as you suck up the lemon juice. The mint/lemon combo is amazing. I'm craving one now!
