Sulfur Mosquito Repellent

I just read about sulfur and mosquito bites. I want to know how often do you do this with the honey or even match stick tops? Every day, once a week, how long before? I have a lot of mosquitoes in my yard and hate to stay in. I want to sit on the swing, enjoy working in my yard, but have tried everything. Help.

I purchase sulphur powder at my pharmacy. It should be behind the counter, if not, your pharmacist can order it for you. It is very inexpensive. I pour it into a tube sock, using a funnel to avoid spills. Fill the sock about 1/3-1/2 of the way up with the powder. Tie a knot on the top of the sock to close it. Hold the sock by the knot and beat it around your ankles and lower leg area. Store it in a ziplock bag. It should keep mosquitoes and chiggers away! Good luck!

Growing up in FL, we were given a pinch of sulfur on our tongues in the morning before going out to play. It kept us free from mosquitos and sand ticks.
