--When the crevices are large enough, insert gum camphor, or make a solution of two ounces of camphor and one pint of alcohol, and apply in the cracks with a feather.
Follow up the application a few days and you will exterminate your disagreeable visitors.
In warm weather mosquitoes may be kept at bay by keeping a cloth wet with camphor near the person.
