5 Easy- Effective Hacks to keep Mosquitoes at Bay
By many measures, mosquitoes are the most dangerous animals in the world.Survey tells that mosquitoes are the main agent responsible for causing malaria each year. However, mosquitoes also transmit a main source of other diseases also like, dengue fever, Chikungunya, west nile virus, yellow fever etc. etc . There’s abundant reason to take every possible measure to avoid mosquito bites even without taking into account their terrible, stinging itchiness. For the best chance in beating these tiny killers you just have to know where mosquitoes live, how to repel them, and how to kill them.
Wear mosquito repellent
A variety of specially-formulated insect repellents are available for sale at camping or sporting goods stores. Apply insect repellent to uncovered skin surfaces when outdoors, especially during the day. When using sunscreen, apply it before insect repellent. Here are a few common chemical solutions effective at repelling mosquitoes:
Consider an all-natural solution.
Experiment with non chemical solutions such as Citronella (natural plant oil). Tea tree oil and vitamin B have reportedly helped some people repel mosquitoes. As with any product, their effectiveness depends on the situation, your own skin chemistry, and the exact type of mosquito you are dealing with. Note, however, that so-called “alternative” solutions sometimes aren’t held to the testing standards that mainstream commercial repellents are – research alternative solutions and read testimonials before spending any money.
Wear loose, long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors.
One of the best ways to keep mosquitoes from biting you is to simply cover your skin. Wear your sleeves and pant legs as long as possible to cover as much skin as possible. Also keep your clothing as loose as possible. This serves two purposes: first, it’s much more comfortable in the hot,humid weather where mosquitoes thrive. Second, mosquitoes can sometimes bite through clothing that’s held tight against the skin, especially if the fabric is thin.
Color game- Mosquitoes
are attracted to the colorsyellow and white. Conversely, they cannot see the color red. So, a great way to stay relatively invisible when you’re working or playing outdoors is to choose your wardrobe wisely. And the same goes with any overly smelly perfume — they’ll be attracted to it.
Sleep with a mosquito net over your bed.
The mosquito netting has fine holes big enough to allow breezes to easily pass through but small enough to keep mosquitoes and other biting insects out. Hang the netting over your bed, securing the top of the net to one or more surfaces. Support the net so that it’s tented without hanging down onto you. Make sure to sleep without touching the sides – mosquitoes can actually bite you through the netting if it’s tight against your skin. Check for holes regularly – patch them with duct tape for a quick fix..
