The summer season brings with it the most pleasant things – sun, heat, sea, holiday, beach – and odious things like mosquitoes. Their bites leave little reddish-red pinches on the skin, and that would be nothing if they did not make you scratch. But let’s see some simple and effective tricks for you to get rid of mosquitoes right away.
And you do not have to use toxic solutions. You do not have to spray in the room and you will not enter until after more than 2 hours when you will not feel the bad smell. Let’s discover the best way to control and prevent the invasion of mosquitoes.
1. Anti-mosquito net on windows
The simplest and lasting way to keep mosquitoes away from you is to put an anti-mosquito net on the windows. In this way, no insect can enter your comfortable home. The mesh is very simple to apply, either directly to the window frame or to a separate frame that gets caught by the glass.
2. Get rid of mosquitoes with lemon
Buy some lemons and cut them into quarters. Put the lemon pieces on the window sill beside the bed or on the table. The astringent smell emanating from the lemons keeps the mosquitoes at a distance, so you can enjoy a quiet sleep at night or a pleasant evening in the company of your lover, without paying attention to the mosquitoes.
3. Use garlic
In the old days, garlic was used to banish the bats, today you can use it to keep away some more palpable insects, such as mosquitoes. In a blender, mix 4 cloves of garlic with a few tablespoons of water.
Pass the mixture through a strainer. All you need is garlic oil, not pulp. Mix the liquid with 1 gallon of water and pour it into a spray bottle.
Spread garlic in areas where you know it’s multiplying. It is not advisable to use this method of mosquito removal if you stay in the apartment because your rooms will smell … quite ugly.
4. Do not let the water gather near the house
The water is the perfect mosquito development environment, so if you want to have a quiet, mosquito-free summer, get rid of any container where rain water has been collected, for example.
5. Be ingenious: make a canopy
The canopy is an Oriental inspirational element that you can use for at least two purposes. First of all, as a bedroom decoration element and secondly, the vaporous material will keep mosquitoes, or other small insects away from the window.
6. Light a scented candle
Do you realize the romantic atmosphere you can create? First the canopy, now the fragrant candle. It is good to know that the colorless odor of the candle is not at all at the pleasure of the mosquitoes, so they will stay away from the place where you are kneeling. Buy a scented candle, something bigger to keep all night.
Place it beside the bed. It goes without saying that you have to be careful not to fire anything. We want you a sensational summer without mosquitoes around!
