Top 3 Natural Ways to Kill Mosquitos

Advice,Family & Parenting,Health
Mosquitoes have caused great and continual trouble to people. They have been part of our daily lives. Their buzzing sound in our ears is just simply annoying, and their bites can ruin your good night’s sleep. What’s more alarming is that these little vampires can cause deadly diseases like malaria and yellow fever. So before hiring exterminators for mosquito control, and avoid bloodsuckers feast on you like a dinner buffet table, here are 3 natural ways to keep them at a distance:

REMOVE STANDING WATER Water in vases, clogged gutters, and puddles of water on your lawn are some of the favorite breeding places of mosquitoes. Remember that while most mosquitoes are active during twilight hours and at night, mosquitoes that breed in stagnant water at home are active during the day. Water is a key factor to complete their life cycle. If storing water in containers could not be avoided, make sure that it is tightly sealed. So the next time you do your general cleaning, make sure you locate and eliminate breeding sites of these despicable pests.

DRESS APPROPRIATELY It is proven that mosquitoes use their vision to find their hosts and they rely on the color of your clothes. According to study, mosquitoes are most attracted to darker colors like black, blue, and red. Opt for a lighter color to wear and make sure you are comfortable because mosquitoes like sweat too. Once humidity increases in your body, the lactic acid that is secreted through your sweat attracts the mosquitoes.

BUILD YOUR OWN GARDEN Nothing beats a remedy that is made up of natural ingredients. Not only it is free from harmful chemicals, it also saves you a lot of money. Garlic, a staple cooking ingredient can do wonders and should not be underestimated. What you need to do is make a juice out of the garlic and mix it with five parts of water. Transfer the solution in a spray bottle and spray it to your skin as needed. If smelling like garlic is not your thing, then show off your gardening skills by planting these plants and herbs in your backyard. One of them is lemongrass; this plant has a subtle lemony scent that most people love, but that mosquitoes hate. It contains Citronella oil, which can be obtained from its leaves just by rolling them around your fingers. Rosemary, an herb used mainly for cooking is also good for keeping mosquitoes at bay. It can also be used as a repellent. Another plant that you might consider growing is Marigold, its pretty flowers can make your garden border beautiful, but it has a pungent smell that mosquitoes don’t like. There’s something about refreshing scents that mosquitoes dislike, and one of them is mint. Again, you can just rub the leaves on your skin as a repellent. Also from the mint family, another good repellent is the catnip plant. This perennial herb is irresistible to cats but loathed by mosquitoes. It is also proved to be more powerful and effective than DEET, a chemical found in insect repellents.

Just make sure that you try these alternatives first. Not only it will save you a couple of dollars but you are also helping the environment to make it greener.
