I am going to mix me up a batch of this and try it out because I just bought a fire bowl and I want to sit out there at night and meditate into the flames. I thought I'd share the recipe with you guys.

I'm just not sure if it keeps away all types of bugs??

Nice! hi5.gif I've been looking for something that might help to keep me from spraying off all over me. It will be interesting to see how well it works.

I will let you all know if it works because as far as mosquitoes are concerned, I am the pièce de résistance.

Well, because the Winter wasn't as cold as normal, the mosquito and black flies are suppose to be really bad this year. It stands to reason that fleas would fall into the same prediction.

Well, I'll try anything at this point and it is only around $10 to make a large batch, so I have nothing to lose.

The stronger you mix it the longer it lasts?

Does that mean use vodka instead of beer?

They don't really specify which ingredient will make it stronger now do they? I would guess the mouthwash (minty smell?)...that's because I would rather not waste the beer.

We just had our farms sprayed for Boll weevil, we have Boll weevil traps posted every 1/8th mile to see how bad they will be this year,

UniqueStranger is so right, it was a really warm winter this last year, I think we only had one hard freeze 2016.

Boll weevil will kill a cotton crop, make the money on the fiber count, and rains at the right time.

I haven't sprayed our yard yet, just waiting on a good rain so it soaks in right.

Edit: pulled

Have you thought of buying predators for the boll weevil?

Quote:Adult weevils overwinter in well-drained areas in or near cotton fields after diapause. They emerge and enter cotton fields from early spring through midsummer, with peak emergence in late spring, and feed on immature cotton bolls. The female lays about 200 eggs over a 10- to 12-day period. The oviposition leaves wounds on the exterior of the flower bud. The eggs hatch in 3 to 5 days within the cotton squares (larger buds before flowering), feed for 8 to 10 days, and finally pupate. The pupal stage lasts another 5 to 7 days. The lifecycle from egg to adult spans about three weeks during the summer. Under optimal conditions, 8 to 10 generations per season may occur.

Boll weevils begin to die at temperatures at or below −5 °C (23 °F). Research at the University of Missouri indicates they cannot survive more than an hour at −15 °C (5 °F). The insulation offered by leaf litter, crop residues, and snow may enable the beetle to survive when air temperatures drop to these levels. The boll weevil lays its eggs inside buds and ripening bolls (fruits) of the cotton plants. The adult insect has a long snout, is grayish color, and is usually less than 6 mm long.

Other limitations on boll weevil populations include extreme heat and drought. Its natural predators include fire ants, insects, spiders, birds, and a parasitic wasp, Catolaccus grandis. The insects sometimes emerge from diapause before cotton buds are available. (Wikipedia)
