    when picnicing just put some pancake syrup on paper plates(2-4) and place 20 ft away from your area then the flies and bees will not bother you. unless a bad infestation then move indoors.

    DYKT: You can use your doorknob as an emergency bottlecap remover (i think this was already mentioned somewhere here).

    I use my wedding band as a bottle opener. Just catch the lip of the cap under your ring and pop it off. Mind you, my band is made of Tungsten Carbide, you may not want to try it with a gold band.

    I hate all spiders. I will kill them. I have a bad case of arachniphobia, and if a spider is spotted in my house, I will destroy it with whatever means I have at my disposal. Shampoo bottle, bar of soap, clothes hanger, etc., If my piercing scream doesnt kill it, then I will find somthing that will.

    This is something I used to do with a combination of oil in the water (for pasta). It does not full stop it, but it does lessen the boil over.

    I hate when people kill spiders, it is so senseless. I'm claustrophobic, yet I don't attack closed in spaces when I see them. I just avoid them and closed in spaces do less good than spiders do.

    The bread we buy is always a yellow or green tab with the date printed on it (my son saves the tabs for some unknown reason, but only the green ones). The brand next to ours is always white again with the date on it.

    The common house spider can't harm people, and it is a pest insect eating machine.

    My tip is to not bother house spiders, and use them as a natural insecticide.

    If the stuff on a dryer sheet repels mosquitoes, and presumably you use them on your clothes when you dry them, wouldn't just wearing your clothes do the same thing? If it's really true, that is...

    I tried that a 12 oz. cube of Jell-O, and they refused to take it. :D

    one dryer sheet with 20-30 pieces of clothing is diluted too much, the one sheet in pocket is full strength.:D:D

    Full strength what?

    A lot of scientific tests have been done about mosquito repellents, and the long-time and still champion is DEET. Some other chemicals work well enough to consider. None of the folk remedies, including citronella work well enough to be practical.

    There's another problem with dryer sheets. The perfumes they put in them attract stinging insects like bees and wasps. I don't want to get stung by a wasp even if it does keep mosquitoes away!

    Used dryer sheets work well for dusting the house.

    here in fla mosquitoes come out at night and the bees are gone home. way too hot here for them to be out in daytime. i know the US is having a heat wave but it is like that here from may to oct all the time every year. so if your having mosquito problems during the day then stick to deet, nobody's twisting your arm, LOL!!

    also i have a friend that lives down near the everglades and when he mows he has long pants with elastics around ankles, long sleeve shirt, a bee hat with screen around neck, gloves,ect... and they have a second house here in south central fla, and they come up here to be outside. he said that nothing workks down there. he says you just don't go out at all.

    However . . . one must learn what a common house spider looks like. I mean, if you do not know, you might be encouraging a dangerous pest. I say kill them all.
