You have a lot of mosquitoes in your bedroom? You don’t like those pesky mosquitoes? A friend of mine send this mosquito treatment tip to me this morning. 

Here’s a tip that was given at a recent gardening forum, try this:

Put some water in a white dinner plate and add a couple drops of Lemon Fresh Joy dish detergent. Set the dish on your porch, patio, picnic table, park bench, or other outdoor area. Not sure what attracts them, the lemon smell, the white plate colour, or what, BUT… mosquitoes flock to it, and drop dead shortly after drinking the Lemon Fresh Joy/water mixture, and usually within about 10 feet of the plate. TRY IT – it works just superb!  It may seem trivial, but it may also help to control mosquitoes around your home, (especially in areas where the West Nile virus is reaching epidemic proportions in mosquitoes, birds, and humans).
