Clever ways to defend from mosquitoe bites
Be clever, know their dislikes
- Wind – they don’t like wind, so turn on your air condition or fan. If you are outside, be clever and pick a place that is slightly windy, that will keep them away.
- Essential oils – lemongrass, cinnamon, rosemary, cedar, clove or geranium are usually used in homemade remedies for fighting mosquitoes. Light the aromatic lamp, couple of drops of these oils or their combination should do the trick.
- Garlic – some say that mosquitoes are repelled by the smell of garlic, so be clever and feast on this magnificent plant. Garlic has such an extraordinary aroma that goes great in various dishes. If you don’t approve garlic breath, just squeeze couple of garlic cloves and mix it with water to create a odorous spray that will keep mosquitoes away.
- Marigold – the scent of marigold keeps little beasts away. Just rub a marigold flower on your skin or plant it on your balcony or yard to keep you safe. Marigold balsam also works after you have been bitten to release the irritation.
- Apple vinegar – if you are horrified by the idea of rubbing vinegar into your skin, have no fear, the scent of vinegar vaporizes quickly, but mosquitoes still won’t bite. Vinegar will also keep you cold so you can enjoy long summer nights. Another clever way to defend your self.
- Herbs – keep the herbs you planted near your windows. Mosquitoes particularly don’t like herbs such as parsley, basil, lavender, mint, lemongrass. If you are clever, they will be too, and will avoid your windows.
- Window nets – if all other means fail, physical force is the way to go! Install nets on your windows and ensure, at least, your interior.
