Natural Mosquito Repellant
With mosquito season in full swing in many parts of the world, it's good to revisit ways to keep those little critters away, as the potential to get some serious diseases like West Nile Virus are real. Some people that get bitten by mosquitoes also experience huge swelling from the mosquito bite, and in some cases irritating itching. Since not everyone feels comfortable with Deet based mosquito control, here's another way to control mosquitoes naturally.
I've talked about using Listerine for mosquito control in the past, and this time around we'll talk about using white vinegar as a mosquito repellent.
Before I get into that, understand that mosquito larvae thrive and hatch in open water around your home, so continually check to make sure any type of container holding water isn't just laying around, as that will allow a mosquito hatch that causes a lot of the problem in the first place. Prevention is always better than having to find a remedy once things begin.

Using white vinegar as natural mosquito control
Anyway, assuming you've done everything you can to effectively prevent, manage and control mosquitoes, if some do escape through all your efforts, you can use white vinegar as one means of naturally controlling the mosquitoes that survived.
This is a really simple and quick process to apply, and all you really need is to get yourself a workable spray mist bottle of any type and open it up by removing the top nozzle.
Just put your white vinegar in the spray bottle and start doing your spraying around the area or areas you'll be hanging around in. If you don't have white vinegar, you can usually find it around the salad dressing area of your grocery store.
Applying white vinegar as mosquito repellent
Don't be afraid to use a significant amount of the white vinegar, as you're really wanting to have effective mosquito control, not just spritz a little area by going through the motions.
If you do it at a medium spraying, it won't take long to see if it's enough to be enough of a mosquito repellent, as if the mosquitoes are there, they'll find you quickly enough. If they come around, just spray some more until it successfully rids the area of them.
One final caution about spraying for mosquitoes with white vinegar, be careful if you have any open cuts or there's strong wind, as it can sting when landing on an open cut, or the wind could force it into your eyes, which we know wouldn't be a pleasant experience.
