I have been on the search for tips to keep the mosquitoes off. We have experienced a large infestation of them due to the excess rain. While having lunch with friends, we discussed what was working for them. None of us like to buy the expensive sprays. Here are the tips, pick one that works for you and your family.

I realize that this is not a tip for everyone, and you will probably get a kick out of it (you wouldn't be the first one), but we have NEVER had a mosquito problem since we got a couple of dozen free range chickens. They are so effective, we totally forget about mosquitoes when we go anywhere and they are a problem. We have mostly Araucanas; the Easter egg chickens that lay the blue and green eggs, and the rooster, named (what else) Mick Jagger. (Have you ever noticed how the original Mick struts on stage?) I know this most likely won't help as a solution if you live in the city, but had to share. (08/08/2007)
I just wanted to add a second to the statement; Vicks Vaporub - amazing stuff! Also, great for nasty toe nail fungus. It really does work well to keep nail fungus under control. (08/08/2007)
