Mosquitoes are the worst, those tiny creatures bring dangerous diseases such as malaria, yellow-fever, and chikungunya, and they also make your skin itchy. To battle mosquitoes, you could use mosquito repellents; you can get those on the stores but usually they are chemical-laden that are dangerous for environment as well as for humans. Then why don’t you use mosquito repellents which are natural and eco-friendly that will do better for you and the environment around; so here are several examples of them you can use.
*1. Dry Ice*
Two fun facts: mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide which we exhale everyday while dry ice releases plenty of carbon dioxide; from here you probably have figured out the following instructions. Get a container, put some dry ice inside it, then place the container on a spot where the mosquitoes in your neighborhood usually hang around. When a bunch of mosquitoes are bamboozled and trapped inside the container, hurry up to close the lid. The downside of this method: it’s a bit of time-consuming, and you need to check the container regularly, but it’s a quite effective way to get rid of mosquitoes in your room.
*2. Coffee Grounds*
Another easy-to-use home remedy can be used to keep mosquitoes at bay is coffee grounds; it’s very simple, just sprinkle it on any stagnant water in or near your home. Small mosquito eggs laid by their mothers in the water are forced to surface (thanks to the coffee ground) and will be suffered from oxygen. This unfortunate situation (for mosquitoes) will kill the eggs even before the eggs are hatched and furthermore will kill the breeding process chain.
*3. Mosquito Traps*
This remedy is pretty self-explanatory, get a mosquito trap ready from the store or if you are confident with your skill ala Ron Swanson, you can make it by yourself. To build a DIY mosquito-trap, first you get a plastic bottle and then cut it in half, next boil some water and add some brown sugar, then mix them well. Wait for the mixture to cool down, then fill it to the bottle until half-full and then add to the mixture some yeast. Cut the funnel part of the bottle and turn it upside down, then wrap up the bottle minus the top part, and boom, you got yourself a mosquito trap. Place the trap in the area in or near your house where mosquitoes are like to hang out, and don’t forget to change the mixture every two weeks.
Another eco-friendly remedy that is easy to use to get rid of mosquitoes is camphor. It’s very simple, close the windows and doors in your room, next light the camphor and just leave it in the room for half an hour. After half an hour have passed, go back and check your room for mosquitoes, guaranteed they are not in your room anymore.
Beside can be used for vampiricide, garlic can be used for larvicide, a kind of insecticide used to kill larvae, in this case mosquito larvae. Take out several cloves of fresh garlic from your kitchen, then crush them good, and boil the crushed garlic in hot water for several minutes. After the garlic water cold, fill it into a spray bottle, and boom, now you have home-made mosquito repellent in your hand, just spray it around your room to kill some mosquitoes. Bonus tip: eat garlic daily can repell mosquito bites, but if you’re not a garlic fan, you can rub some garlic cloves on your skin.
