I'm not sure of the date of the clipping but its contents were rather timely. It was unusually warm on the East Coast this winter and Spring started very early, so the local bug (specifically ugly, blood sucking, annoying, disease mongrel, mosquitoes) population is exploding. Mosquitoes around here are as certain as...you guessed it...death and taxes. I hate these incessant little beasts and they are thick as pea soup in the evening when I do lot of work outside (to escape some of the summer heat). That all being said, this old-timey tincture might be worth a try, assuming I can find all the ingredients and nothing in it leads to immediate cancer or causes my leg to fall off or something.
