Bug Off! Natural Ways To Repel Mosquitoes

by on

Mosquitoes are things people always try to avoid, and with good reason. Not only are they a nuisance when they bite, they also leave you with an itchy sore for a few days. To repel mosquitoes there are lots of products to assist with that, but in the majority of cases, that would mean using chemicals and products harmful to them and us as well.

One of the best ways to repel mosquitoes is to use Citronella candles. They are very easy to be made, are natural, and will release a scent that will keep the mosquitoes away. Place these candles in any outdoor area that you would like to enjoy to create a barrier that will keep mosquitoes away.

An alternative to Citronella candles is lavender. It is lovely and beautiful to humans but mosquitoes hate it. Add lavender to windows and door to help repel mosquitoes.

Another way to prevent mosquitoes is to make sure that there is no standing water on your property. This is where mosquitoes breed, so emptying any pots or buckets around your house will reduce their numbers.

You can also buy or create a mosquito trap. This trap will attract mosquitoes by using CO2. The trap is built in a way that bugs and mosquitoes can enter it but cannot leave it.

Follow these given natural repellants and it is guaranteed mosquitoes will not even think about crossing you or your property!
