The mosquitos in Wisconsin have been INSANE this year, due to an incredible span of time with rain, rain, rain. I won't complain about the rain; we needed it badly, but I could do without the mosquitoes. That's why we practically buy Deep Woods Off by the case. Seriously, I've had to stop Mr.4444 from keeping a can in the bathroom for aftershave; he loves the danged smell so much! Although it does leave a slight stickiness at first, you can't argue with the effectiveness. We love our Deep Woods OFF!
When I asked Mr.4444 what product he would recommend for the garage, he quickly promoted his favorite, contractor-strength garbage bags, which he buys at Home Depot, but I don't know what they're called. (sorry) He also highly recommends Ortho Weed-B-Gone and Round-Up for the lawn. (No, we don't care about dying from pesticides; we care more about being able to run barefoot through the grass :)
That's it for me. This seemed like a good category at the time, but since I'm terrible at gardening, I'm coming up empty on that front. Maybe you can offer a suggestion for getting my rose bush to bloom? We've had it several years now, and I tried bonemeal (per my green-thumb Mom's suggestion), but Cooper just kept digging up the dirt to get at it, so we had to stop!
