    Sold my first one today. The lady is having a party tomorrow. She is a nice lady and a great customer. I told her if it worked like I said...send me a check. If not, send me a note. I get so nervous when I try new products. She has one of those mosquito magnets rusting away on the side of her house.....

    Just wondering what you are using for your treatment. We purchased a plant called a Citrosa, Pelargonium graveolens. Works like a charm. We placed it on our front porch and haven seen a mosquito since, in fact havent seen any flies or other flying insects either. The plant smells just like those mosquito candles that are supposed to drive mosquitos away but dont ever work.

    mosquito barrier...lots of threads here. I have done several for friends and had rave reviews. I did it for my friend who said his wife got tore up every night they went outside. I spray him on a friday and he comes out saturday and powerwashes the whole coverd area they sit in at night. Still worked he said....

    I used 1 qt of MB, 3 ozs talstar and a big glob of hort oil for 30 gallons of water. Spray it out with my JD9. I'm hoping it worked as well for this lady. If it does, I'll bet she has it done regularly..
