    Interesting. I'll have to try that. Besides, I've always liked my parasites minty fresh! :laugh:


    Just a note though. On this forum if you are discussing something that is not egg related, we usually start off the post with an "O. T." for "off topic".

    I look forward to many more off your posts.

    Welcome. My wife came home two months ago telling me that Listerine was the ticket for the "bugs from hell".
    I guess I will have to give it a try. Thanks.
  • Thanks for the tip. I wonder if it works on the big green flies at Asseteque Island

    Do you spray it on yourself or are you spraying it on the plants and surrounding shrubs? We get them bad in my yard and they chase us in the house. really stinks cause that's usually when the party is starting to get going good!

    I know our canadian blackflies, take as much skin off than we take briskets off the shelves. :lol:

    I live in Montreal, so moskitoes are always giving guests and myself rough time on my ankles and head.

    The person that recommended this medicine told me it worked also with blackflies. Haven't tried it yet, give me feedback if you do.

    Both, on yourself and surrondings, including grass.

    Give me feedback

    We have them bad this year. Mosquitoes aren't bad yet.I'm missing a 2" patch of skin on the back of my neck from the blackies. They seem to like egg smoke.

    This is an old urban myth. It does not work so any perceived improvement is unrelated.
