Mozzie repellent tree that really works.

Postby bubba louie » Sun Feb 09, 2014 5:04 pm

We have a terrible mosquito problem at the moment, so I gave everything a good chop back to let some sun and breeze in.
Normally I'm a mosquito magnet but I noticed that when I was cutting back the curry leaf tree they left me alone. The leaves are very pungent and I suspected that was what chased them, so I googled.
Seems the Indians have known this all along.

This is one repellent that really does work.
