Best Ways to Keep Mosquitoes Away This Summer

Summers bring with it the swarm of blood thirsty mosquitoes. Annoying buzzes and itchy bites are not the only things that make mosquitoes our uninvited guests. These mosquitoes are responsible for carrying some of humanity’s greatest diseases like Malaria, Dengue and Chikungunya. Mosquitoes can be anything from consistent nuisance to an enemy with whom you are at a war. But, the good news is that there are several natural ways through which you can keep mosquitoes away and not let them harm you.

Ways to Keep Mosquitoes Away

Here is a list of things that you should follow to keep mosquitoes away and save yourself from getting bitten by deadly mosquitoes:

  1. Use mosquito repellent :

    Mosquito repellent is the best way to keep mosquitoes away and stay out of the reach of mosquitoes. Apply a good quality and natural mosquito repellent cream like Odomos. It provides 99.9% protection against mosquito bites, has no side effect on your skin and makes its effect stay on you for more than 8 hours. Because it contains natural ingredients; it is safe for children, gets easily absorbed by skin and smells great too. It is easy to carry in your travel kit as it is available in the form of spray, gel, cream, roll on, wrist band and patches.

  2. Apply repellents during outside activity at peak mosquito hours :

    It’s not easy to avoid mosquitoes during the day, which is when mosquitoes are most active or stop kids from stepping out to play. During summer time, these creatures are everywhere you go but you need to understand when different types of mosquitoes are active according to your geographical region. Like Dengue mosquitoes are active during the day time. While stepping outinthe day, wear mosquito repellent patches or mosquito repellent wristband like Odomos and make it a habit. Applying a good quality mosquito repellent is one of the most effective ways to stay protected from these mosquitoes even when you are out of the house.

  3. Drain standing water around the home :

    Mosquitoes need stagnant, still water to breed and for baby mosquitoes to successfully hatch and mature. The best way to keep mosquitoes away is to regularly clean the gutters, empty the pools and buckets, change the water in birdbaths, and cover the trash cans. This will deprive mosquitoes from breeding in your surroundings and protect you from harmful diseases. You can also opt for Odomos mosquito repellent spray to get rid of these mosquitoes.

  4. Check your screens :

    Placing a proper netted sheet (Jaali) on the doors and windows of your house will help keep mosquitoes at bay and keep you protected from the deadly diseases they carry with themselves. Check for any tears and holes in the screen through which mosquitoes can enter your house and get them repaired too.

  5. Cover up with clothing :

    The best way to keep mosquitoes away is to cover yourself with long sleeves and pants. The best protection is to cover exposed skin. Mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors like black and blue, so avoid wearing them. Rather, wearing light colored clothes is always a great option to protect yourself from mosquito bites.

  6. Natural plants :

    Some plants work effectively in keeping away mosquitoes. Their fragrance is repelled by these creatures and they don’t come in the area where those plants are grown. Some of the best natural plants are Marigold, Lavender, Rosemary, and Catnip.
