I have been researching ways to keep the ticks and mosquito's at a minimum in our yard and garden. For the past few years we have used that garlic spray but it's so expensive.
I read online last week about using mouthwash (the company begins with the letter "L"), the original yellow stuff, in a spray bottle & just spray plants and lawn.
I tried it last weekend after freaking out last Thursday when I had 4 ticks making themselves at home on me! It's been so bad the past 2 weeks. There have been ticks everywhere! We used the generic brand and sprayed it everywhere. I don't know if it worked. We saw 2 ticks on our living room rug today.
What do you use on your lawns and gardens, and yourself for that matter. I have my 2 year old granddaughter playing in that yard. I could really use some hints from all you knowledgeable gardeners out there.
Thanks for your help.
