Because solutions and anti-mosquito sprays often contain pesticides that are dangerous to health, a better option is natural remedies and ingredients for the problem on how to get rid of mosquitoes.
Plants marigolds, mats grass, and rosemary in garden or in pots
These plants emit unpleasant odors for mosquitoes and will keep them at a distance. It is scientifically proven that thiophene, the insecticide compound contained by different species of marigold, can cause the death of mosquitoes. It is not guaranteed, however, that only a few marigolds will expose the insects to a level of pesticides high enough to kill them. But if you plant the marigold along with other plants, herbs, and flowers, a vegetation bloom corner will attract hummingbirds and other birds that can get rid of mosquitoes.
Apply eucalyptus oil with lemon on your skin
Put five drops of oil in a cup of water, then put the mixture in a plastic spray container and apply two or three “puffs” before leaving the house. The aroma of oil keeps mosquitoes at a distance.
Light candles with citronella oil
Mosquitoes hate citronella just as much as they hate and the smell of eucalyptus.
Get rid of any potential source of water status
Mosquitoes like water status and use it as a breeding medium. Even a smaller pot for plants that has been left in the air and filled with rainwater is a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Put anti-mosquito nets everywhere
According to entomologists, mosquitoes decrease in activity when wind gusts exceed 16 kilometers per hour. A high-speed fan should produce a sufficient gust to keep insects away. In addition, the fans help dissipate the carbon dioxide they exhale and reduce body heat, factors that attract mosquitoes, writes ehow.com.
Use lavender oil
To keep the mosquitoes away, you can sprinkle some bows, for example, with a drop of lavender oil, and hang them on the open windows. Lavender oil can also be applied to the skin, which will prevent insects from giving you starch.
Use rosemary when making the grill
Mosquitoes often come into action when you are at a barbecue, and this simple trick will help you stop them.
Apply neem oil
Neem oil has been used for hundreds of years both in medicine and for cosmetic purposes. Neem is a fast-growing, evergreen tree, originating in India, Pakistan, and Burma. Neem seed oil is cold pressed from tree nuts. It has a very strong odor, relatively repellent, dark color and medium viscosity.
