yep! ive been using catnip for a year or so now. we live on a creek so our mosquitoes are just horrible here. also works great on the dog!!

warning though, it STINKS! so brew up equal parts of either peppermint, lemon balm, lemon verbena, thyme or another good smelling herb to help with the smell a little. that MAY give you a fighting chance to the shower before your cats go ape ****.

i must say though, my husband can smell it but i cant. i have a funky nose.

also, they say that cats under the age of 6 months dont typically react to it.

is the reaction rate really 50%?? i figured it would be higher than that.

anyone else use honeysuckle?? we have tons here in the south. never knew it had the same effect.
