In a video that has now gone viral, she detailed her method.

Sharing the experience with attempting the hack, another person said: “Texas mosquitoes are built differently, they landing directly on the soap as I was trying to spread it lol.”

Another person chimed in: “It works to keep spiders away too!!!!”

With another tip, someone said: “[Saw] another video where you can take 50 percent mouthwash and 50 percent water put in the spray bottle and spray that around the yard and it’ll keep them away.”

“Try it with mothballs and peppermint oil, place it all in your grass and your doors,” someone else suggested.
