It is known that you do not catch flies with vinegar … nor do mosquitoes, because they hate its smell!
While the tiger mosquito in particular, which can transmit Zika, malaria and dengue fever, is now well established in the territory and is particularly active, white vinegar, a miracle and a natural home product, is already effective against mosquitoes that claim themselves into our homes.
