My garden is a lovely place to be until sometime in June and then they arrive.

It just isn’t fun to be outside when the mosquitoes are buzzing and biting, but if you’re like me, you hate the idea of spraying a lot of chemicals.

A friend told me about this, and amazingly, it works!

It’s a yard spray made of 3 simple household ingredients.

Mix it up, spray it on the ground and on your plants and you’ll notice a difference almost immediately.

If you’re diligent, within a few weeks there should be no more mosquitoes breeding in your yard!!

Here’s the recipe:

In a 1/2 gallon sprayer filled with water, add:

1 T Vinegar, 1 T Lemon Scented Ammonia, 1 T Lemon Dishsoap

Shake it all up and spray on plants, the ground, etc.

It will clean your windows too 🙂
