    Haven't tried it yet, it's still too cold here in the northeast. In fact, can you actually believe that am looking forward to seeing a bug?! Just because it would mean that we are having more then one 70 degree day!

    I've used it the last 3 years. It does work it's just not as long lasting as store bought stuff! But if you keep applying it it works great!

    Mm, the mouthwash is an ingredient I haven't seen before, interesting. We use a mixture of skin so soft, vinegar and eucalyptus oil (can add citronella too, but its optional).

    I have tried only the other day and this recipie worked wonders and seems to last ages. It was 33% paraffin oil, 33% eucalyptus oil and 33% detol or antiseptic all mixed up in a cheap spray bottle.

    We use Vicks Vapor Rub ointment in the ears. Rub a little in the ears; this will help keep the flies, gnats and mosquitoes off.

    My QH is allergic to Skin So Soft.
    She breaks out in hives.
