Sawdust Skeeter Scat

A household funnel forms an effective mold for this skeeter scat. The funnel is
filled with sawdust that has been previously mixed with Sobo or similar glue. Thin
lubricating oil is then added to this mixture. Colors may be obtained by adding a
small amount of vegetable dye. The inside of the funnel should be coated with
Vaseline to prevent the mixture from sticking. The mixture is carefully pushed into
the funnel and, when dry, is removed from the mold. The large end is placed flat
on the table, and the small tapered end is ignited. The slow-burning produces a
smoke and mild odor which drives away mosquitoes.
