OMFG. These things out where I live now are the size of small birds I swear. I can't walk thru the yard except during high sun or you will just see HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of these things. I read about some high priced stuff that you can use to spray on your yard to repel them but I was wondering if anyone knew of a cheaper -home brew- type of mix to spray on my yard? There is like swamp behind us so getting rid of all the standing water isn't really an option.
HEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!

The Best plain and simple, spend the money you wont be sorry.
But they only work for a 15 x 15 area. I would need 3 for the garden area, 1 for my flower garden area, 2 for my clothes line area, 3 for the kennel area, and 3 for the doorways. YIKES. But those do look like it would work good while fishing.Thanks

My grandfather told me to plant marigolds to get rid of the skeeters. I never liked the smell of them. Mayby the bugs don't either. I also think I remember Jerry Baker sayin to spray onion juice around. Never tried it. I think this makes their little eyes water and they crash into things.:lol: :lol:

You need a few bat houses or some swallows. We noticed a huge difference in the bug population after installing a few bat houses. We have swallows too and they eat a ton of bugs. You could always stay inside when the bugs are out if they are that awful.

Try mixing one cup of lemon scented dish soap and 1 or 1/2 cup ( I cant remember which) of lemon juice with a 5 gallon bucket of water. Put it in a sprayer and spray on your lawn. I know what your thinking:dizzy: Just give it a try. It will drastically reduce the number of mosquitos laying in your lawn waiting to pounce. I heard about from a guy who used to charge people to spray this on thier lawn. I have used it at my house when I have outdoor parties. It works pretty well for the cost factor and it is non toxic.;)
