Effective tips to repel mosquitoes

Back when I was still in the UK, I didn’t even experience having these annoying creatures around, until I went to a different country. Anyway, nothing is more annoying than the buzzing of a mosquito in your bedroom. Keep mosquitoes away with these tips!

  1. Water

Did you know that mosquitoes are attracted to water? Mosquitoes lay eggs in water and these eggs develop into new mosquitoes. You can break this circle by emptying all containers, flower pots, buckets, and vases with water in it.

2. Body products with perfume

That body lotion with coconut scent is wonderful, but unfortunately, mosquitoes think so too. Too bad about all those nice perfume smells, but if you really want to keep mosquitoes out, it’s better to avoid them. Especially during night hours, when mosquitoes are very active, it’s better not to use perfume.

3. Lemon eucalyptus oil

An oil such as lemon eucalyptus oil would help against mosquitoes, according to experts. The fresh oil contains PMD (paramenthane diol) and works as an insecticide. This means that the oil overloads the mosquitoes’ smell and taste sensors.

4. Light-coloured clothing

Mosquitoes are most attracted to dark clothing. If mosquitoes often find you, it may help to wear lighter clothing. Weather permitting, it’s recommended to wear long clothing.
