Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: I hate Mosquitoes!! Here are a few tips to help keep those nasty things at bay. If you have trouble with them getting in your rain barrel, add 1 tbs of olive oil to the water's surface. To keep them out of your yard, mix 1 cup lemon scented dish soap and 1 cup lemon scented ammonia and put it in a hose end sprayer set to 20 gallons. Spray 3 times a week and avoid breathing in the ammonia fumes.
