Tip: Ziplock Baggies As Fly Repellent

Ziplock Baggies, who knew? I found this online. Some of my friends and I have tried it and it seems to work like a charm! Fill a ziplock baggie with 1/4-1/2 full of water and drop 4-6 pennies in the bottom. Seal and tack or tape it to a problem area. I hang mine a few feet away but above the doors to my house. I'm now a believer!

    Juice from a fresh lemon actually repels most flying insects. I live in Florida, where the state bird is either the mosquito or little biting bugs called no-see'ems. Because of health issues and allergies, I have had a lot of difficulty with insect repellents. I am allergic to most of the chemicals (which I don't like using), but I am also allergic to most insect bites. Mosquitoes are attracted to female hormones so makes it difficult to go out of the house. However, I have made a repellent that works 100% for me, and is 100% natural. When we walk the dogs in the evening, I cut a small section from a fresh lemon, dab behind ears, shoulders, elbows, etc. I have not had an insect bite since April of this year. Also softens the skin. And I use it on my grandchildren with 100% success.
