Natural Mosquito Repellent

I hate the idea of putting chemicals into/on Tori. I use ACV, DE and nematodes to control fleas (haven't had a single one in almost 4 yrs.). I use Avon's SSS, Listerine, and dryer sheets to control mosquitoes (dryer sheets tied to the collar seem to work best, but they do look a bit strange). Fortunately, we don't have a huge mosquito problem here.

I came across this article on natural mosquito repellents in "Dogs Naturally" magazine and thought I'd share it with you all. The info on the lemon eucalyptus oil sounds very good to me. I'm thinking I'll get some of the pet safe variety and the cute little collar holder for it from Daisy Paw to have handy when we go camping later this summer.


At our house, we spell happiness H-A-V-A-N-E-S-E

Thanks, Leslie! I will definitely try some of those tricks because we have a huge mosquito population in south GA especially with a pond behind us and a river in front of us!!!
