Afraid of Zika? get rid of mosquitos! 1 lg btl of blue mouthwash, 3cups of Epsom salt & 3 stale beers.mix together ( until salts dissolve) spray around infected areas. non toxic & safe for animals & plants! It really works.
Great idea to get rid of mosquitos.. .. To be honest the combination sounds pretty insane.. Can u explain why do u think those ingredients may work ? How does baking soda, spraying it around would help get rid of mosquitos ? Stinky beer ? Any actual evidence ? What is in the mouthwash that works to repel mosquitos ? Any evidence ?... I do know that if bitten and got ill... To immediately take internally essential oil of oregano ( put few drops into a capsule ) that will kill any virus or bacteria.. I have actually experienced it.. Dr Rowen from santa Rosa traveled to sierra leone and taught local doctors to heal ebola with ozone ivs in 2-5 days.. Same will work for zika.. It is not what it is made out to be in the media.. Money making from more vaccines..
Just want to add some facts about Zika and microcephaly:
1. Zika has been around for 70 years and has never caused any serious problems. Some suggest that a very small % can develop Guillain-Barre, but there is not real proof of that.
2. Zika outbreaks in 40 other countries caused no increase in Microcephaly, even when 75% of the population had Zika. In Columbia, 3,177 pregnant women were infected with Zika, and all were carrying, or delivered, healthy babies.
3. The US has 20,000 cases of Microcephaly per year; it can be caused by any insult to the developing fetus, including malnutrition.
4. The week before the link between zika and microcephaly in Brazil was made, Brazil's health agency, ABRASCO, put out a report saying that their pesticide use has skyrocketed due to infestations of their GM soy and cotton plants, making them now the number one consumers of pesticides worldwide.
5. Three of the most widely used pesticides/herbicides in Brazil, Atrazine, Metolachlor, and Glyphosate, have been shown in studies to cause restricted fetal growth, small head circumference, and microcephaly (among other things)
6. The Brazilian govt. put a larvicide called Pyriproxyfen in their drinking water to combat mosquitoes, for 18 months in starting in 2014. It's made by a business partner of Monsanto, Sumitomo Chemical. They say it poses "minimal risk to birds, fish and mammals." But, wouldn't that depend on variable factors, such as how much water you drink?
7. The Brazilian govt., at the suggestion of the WHO, mandated the Dtap vaccine for all pregnant women in 2014, despite the fact that the vaccine insert for the Dtap vaccine clearly states that it's never been tested in pregnant women.
8. A UK biotech company called Oxitec, released genetically modified mosquitoes in Brazil to combat Dengue fever. Which, incidentally, went up afterwards. The GM mosquitoes were supposed to mate with the wild mosquitoes, but the embryos were supposed to die, UNLESS there were certain antibiotics present, some of which are used in animals in Brazil.
9. Of the 4,180 cases of Microcephaly originally reported in Brazil, 732 were examined, and only 270 also had a link to the Zika virus. Underwhelming numbers even if correlation did equal causation. Plus, they changed the terminology from "microcehaly" to "microcephaly and other birth defects," and from "had the Zika Virus," to "had an association with the Zika virus." That's not semantics, they were getting the results they expected, so they broadened the parameters.
9. Both Argentinian and Brazilian doctors, and several organizations have spoken out about this issue and feel that one or more of the above acts is much more likely to be causing an increase in Microcephaly than Zika.
If you ignore the constant "suggestions" of the zika-microcephaly link, paired with pictures of babies with tiny heads, the WHO never really says zika causes Microcephaly, they just "suggest" a "link." Yet, the CDC is asking for $1.8 billion to combat Zika, and want to develop another money-generating vaccine for it.
Perhaps the Brazilian govt. would rather a virus that's been considered benign for 70 years be blamed instead of their actions.
OM- there are people who cannot be educated.. the sleepers.. IN the system...can u imagine doing an enema 3 times a day and putting mouthwash in your body! whoever wrote this - please... do some research !
This may be a simple translation issue. It's not that there are no mosquitoes in Cotacachi. It's that the mosquitoes are not considered worth mentioning, at least not compared to the night-feeding vampire bats
I am in Puerto Escondido, Mexico and was fascinated by your formula to repel mosquitoes. I have a tiny ant infestation that come out in armies from the drains in my sinks, walk on the floors, inhabit any surface no matter how clean and if they get on you bite. I am in an old house and although we have plugged some holes, it is impossible to plug all the tiny ones where they might enter. I have a small dog and cat so I need something safe for them. Do you think this will work for tiny ants, and if not, do you know of anything that will?
Canella...ground cinnamon. First clean eeverything with an ammonia based disinfecting cleaner. My favorite, Buen y barrato (good and cheap) is mi comissariato store brand floor cleaner... $1.49 a bottle, two capfuls a gallon... you know these things in my biz. But any will do. Pick up the cheap local handy wipes too. Cut them up to wipe everything dry. The make great rags, better than paper towel and more economical. Also great cabinet liners. Now while you are out, buy a few bottles of canella molido... ground cinnamon. And a paint brush. Sprinkle the cinnamon and brush it into the corners. You also want to take protective action. Ziplocs on any open saga, plastic containers and reuse empty jars. And use your microwave as a bread box. Nothing will completely stop the ants. They are in the building. But you want room discourage them from your home...
Go to AgriPac and buy a bottle of Frontline Spray. It is a bit expensive at $17.60 but kills most (if not all crawling insects) Hormigas, pulgas, garraoatas y piojos, etc. Safe in the house and around pets. Read the instructions as always with pesticides and insecticides. Not intended for mosquitos or other flying insects.

An expat who retired to Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador enjoys Bahia's very low cost of living, fresh uncontaminated food and warm climate. He wishes he had been more cautious with investments given the issues in Ecuador with the 7.8 earthquake last April. The experience has taught him a lot about buying property and property laws.

An expat in Cuenca, Ecuador advises others to take an exploratory trip before committing to making the move. Then, if you do move to Cuenca, leave your furniture at home since it's very expensive to ship and furniture is very reasonably priced in Ecuador.
