- Helps keep
away the flies and mozzies (but what repellant is 100% effective?)
the sting from bullants and stinging nettles (personally tested
by the editor)
- Easy to
make and use.
- Smells refreshing!
8 parts Sorbylene based moisturiser, 1 part Dettol (or similar )
and 1 part methylated spirits.
Rub on exposed
or affected sections.
to keep those pesky possums off a particular tree?
- Cut the
ends off 2 plastic bottles, one smaller than the other eg a 1
litre and 2 litre milk bottle or soft drink bottles
- Put some
naphthalene flakes into the smaller one.
- Cover this
with the larger one (stops the flakes getting wet).
- Pierce holes
through opposite sides of the contraption and thread twine through
the 4 holes in a straight line, leaving a twine loop at the top.
- Hang the
contraption in your bush/tree. The possums hate the smell of naphthalene!
