I received this via email-- if you try it and it works, let me know!!! If it keeps mosquitos away from kids and people, then it should keep them away from Pekingse, too!! I'm also going to get some plants from my neighbor (they spread and grow thick) that are supposed to keep mosquitos away. I'm going to get box planters to put on the deck and see if these plants will help. Mosquitos don't like me much, but they love my grandgirls!! (I know there are different flavors, so let me know if one works more than another!!)

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 demons 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 Bug-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.

Must it be the green one or will any listerine flavor do?

I don't know if one is better than another-- they have about five different "flavors." I would probably like vanilla haha.
