8 Natural Ways to Keep Mosquitos Away!

+ + +

1) Avoid Beer & Spicy Food Before Sleep

Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide we exhale. Beer and spicy foods promote increased exhalation, therefore avoid them many hours before bedtime.

2) Drink Grapefruit Juice

Grapefruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, and a substance known as nutecton. Studies demonstrate that nutecton is highly effective at repelling mosquitoes and ticks.

3) Drink Cold Tea

The major element in mosquito repellent is citronella oil, which is derived from lemongrass. Therefore, Lemongrass can be added to iced tea, a delightful summer beverage.

4) Wear White Clothes

Mosquitoes choose prey with their eyes, and their ability to identify and evaluate plays a significant role in this process. Therefore, wear lighter clothing.

5) Avoid Scratching 

Stretching induces bleeding, and the presence of blood attracts insects. Icing the bite is more helpful than scratching at reducing the itching sensation and cooling the bite.

6) Cool Yourself

We excrete lactic acid, uric acid, ammonia, and other compounds when we perspire. These odors are attractive to mosquitoes. So, cool down after perspiring.

7) Choose the right scent

Don't buy bouquets during mosquito season since flowers attract insects. Replace it with the correct smells, such as lemonella, citronella, and the likes.

8) Sit under fan or strong wind

As with all little flies, the female mosquito has trouble flying in severe gusts. Any breeze above 2 km/h will make it difficult for them to reach you and bite you.
