Stop Zika: San Francisco Plant (Codiaeum variegatum) Kills Mosquito Eggs and Larvae

Wouldn't you know it, a teen has found a way to kill mosquito eggs and larvae within 24 hours by using a common plant.

I even included a handy make-your-own plant extract recipe to kill mosquito eggs and larvae in and around your own home. Fortunately, on Zazzle, this plant is available for purchase from a reputable, customer-support based company (so I included it within this article).

There is no reason to waste all that good produce when there are a number of other ways to keep it edible through the winter.
