How about a little garlic AKA Trivia 310

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179


Trivia 310


I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.


One more thought on food or food products then I’ll move on to something else for a while.  People have long used garlic to repel vampires but it is also effective against two other bloodsuckers.  That being of course mosquitoes and ticks.  Now where did I leave those capsules? 


Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Barbara, I eat alot of garlic, too, but it is typically bathed in cheese at the corner Italian Restaurant.  Weird, my fat is not going away. lol

I had heard that, but since we have chickens who gobble up all those pesky critters, we do not seem to have a problem with either.  I have also heard quinine or tonic water do the same.

Good morning James,

Must be something about blood but it does not work with the mosquito's for me and is consumed in large quantities.

Make yourself a great day.

Good morning James. Garlic as a insect repellent: I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip.

James, I just used all my garlic in the house - on vampires, too. Did not know garlic covered mosquitoes and ticks. Will replenish my stock. Have a feeling with garlic all over me, it will keep away more than the insects, (e.g.) people?!?

The only problem with the mosquitoes is they usually don't figure it out until after they've bitten you. Oh, ick, garlic, why did I sting her?
