Mosquito Control with DIY Purify

Mosquito Control with DIY Purify

The dog days of summer have arrived in Wyoming!  After a big winter our reservoirs are full and swollen rivers have left standing water EVERYWHERE.  Our mosquito problem is epic, even with widespread arial chemical warfare which basically is doing more harm than good.  On a smaller scale, we have an epic mosquito problem in our backyard due to a defunct pond that leaks but there’s always just a little standing water.  I spray myself and the dogs with CW Mosquito Repellent {extra strength version} but we’re to the point now that any standing water is a mosquito magnet and must go!

This post is short and sweet because the remedy for our small standing water problem is so simple yet so effective that there’s no need to wax poetic.  If you have a standing water, mosquito infested problem in your yard, make up a bottle of DIY Purify and take of it naturally, affordably and effectively!  Here’s how!

Make the blend, drop 40 to 50 drops in your standing water.  You’ll repel mosquitos and most likely kill any larvae, you won’t kill bees or any other worthy backyard visitors like butterflies and hummingbirds.

The End.

P.S. Thank you for caring for your yards responsibly.  Always, always take into consideration what the consequences will be when you grab a quick fix chemical at your local nursery or big box retail like Home Depot or Lowe’s.  You invested good money in your therapeutic grade essential oils, put them to work for you and your planet keeping flora, fauna, your children and pets S A F E!

    I have read that Melaleuca is not supposed to be used on dogs. Both of mine are over 75 lbs. Do you think this small amount will hurt them, Thanks :-)

      That will have to be a personal decision for you but, I use the blend often with alcohol free witch hazel to wipe my dogs faces as a bug repellent. I spray a soft cloth the wipe them down avoiding direct contact with eyes.

    I don’t have white fir, what can i use instead for this mixture? Also, i have used tea tree on both my dogs with no problems except killing the ticks!

    Hi – I am assuming to make the Purify Essential Oil Blend that you mix it with a carrier oil? Which one…and how much? if you do.

    Thank you so much!
