Sometimes it is difficult to spot a small mosquito that moves unnoticed, but it is betrayed by the specific buzzing sound that can be heard when it approaches its prey. It only takes a moment to pierce the skin and feed on blood, leaving behind a bite mark and a persistent itch. In some gardens, there is even a plague of mosquitoes that fly in through the windows and doors of the house. It is time to know ways to get rid of them from your environment.
How to protect yourself from mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are always unwelcome, but they do not care about it and just look for opportunities to bite. You can wring your hands, but these little bloodsuckers are very persistent and persistently pursue their target. If you do not manage to kill the mosquito, then, unfortunately, eventually he gets his way and bites. It needs literally a moment for this, and the consequences of its bite are felt by the victim for a long time. Most of these insects is of course in the summer, at this time of year there are excellent conditions for intense reproduction of mosquitoes. Summer evenings spent near a body of water is one of the worst ideas, because it is swarming with mosquitoes. What then to do to protect against it?
You can start with plants that repel mosquitoes, but you have to literally bet on them if they are to be truly effective. It is worth having as many as possible of velvet, basil, lemon balm, rosemary, lavender, mosquito berry, boysenberry, geranium, zennia, mint. Essential oils that are effective in repelling mosquitoes will also help. However, they do not provide permanent protection, and after the disappearance of the smell become ineffective. You must therefore often use them. Usually they are in the form of a spray, which is sprayed on the skin. You can also use a diffuser, which allows you to fill the entire room with fragrances pleasant to the household and simultaneously repel insects. Preparations for mosquitoes can also be in the form of gel, ointment, spray or even skin patches.
What to do to get rid of mosquitoes?
The way to get rid of mosquitoes is to distract them and lure them to a device that is deadly to them. Insecticidal lamps that emit ultraviolet light act as a lure for various types of insects. However, all they need to do is fly inside and they will be electrocuted. This is tantamount to killing them. Such lamps do not emit any poisonous odors, they are completely safe for use by humans, they also do not threaten pets. Mosquito nets can be installed on the window frames, which will not allow mosquitoes or other insects to get inside. The rooms will be completely free of these little bloodsuckers. If there has been an invasion of mosquitoes in the garden, it is worth spraying to effectively get rid of them. Spray should be primarily shady and damp areas, dense trees and shrubs. Mosquitoes lay their eggs on the surface of water bodies, so it is worth using products for mosquitoes such as AQUATAIN. For humans, plants and animals it is a completely safe preparation that interrupts the life cycle of mosquitoes. It creates a thin film on the water surface, which discourages the laying of eggs, prevents the attachment of pupae to the surface and their development.
