Recipe For A Green Lawn With No Mosquitoes

I wanted to share our secret to a natural, non-poisonous, yard healthy recipe for getting rid of mosquitoes and making your lawn green.


Mix Equal parts of:

  • Listerine
  • flat Coors beer
  • Epson salts

Mix until salts dissolve and then pour into one of those bottles that you can attach to a hose and spray your yard. Repeat if it rains or every month. It will keep the mosquitoes away, it's healthy for your lawn, and it makes your grass pretty and green. We live in Florida, enough said when it comes to mosquitoes. It works great for us!

Can it be any beer and how do you measure the epsom salts. A glass of each or what.

Editor's Note: It says equal parts so whatever you use to measure the ingredients would be fine.

If this would also get rid of fire ants here in SC it would be great!

I have dogs, is it safe for them, do I need to keep them out of the area for a length of time?
