Defences against mosquitos

 Six hot tips on how to keep the mosquitos away for good! 

1. Insect Repellant 

Mosquitos will scatter in fear when they detect insect repellent. It creates a barrier on the skin that prevents mosquitoes from landing on or biting exposed skin. Active ingredients work by interfering with the insect’s smell receptors, making it difficult for them to detect the presence of humans. Some repellents may also affect the insect’s taste receptors, making human skin less appealing to them.

2. Kiss The Boo-Boos

Neuroscience and psychotherapy believe the act of kissing a wound can help the loved one feel better. The release of feel-good hormones and the act of the warm positive interaction bring a sense of comfort. A humble band aid stands ready to mend our wound and heal the affected area that deserves attention and care. Mosquito patches can be applied to soothe  and relieve the itchy sensation of a mosquito bite. Grid-patterned patches stretch across  the bite increasing lymphatic flow, which  drains the nasty insect saliva away.

3. Remove Watery Wastelands

Mosquitos love to breed in moist, stagnant water. The watery wasteland of the backyard is an oasis for eggs to hatch. Reuse the leftover water and feed the garden, wash the socks left in the rain and reclaim victory. Trim overgrown vegetation and remove debris from your yard to eliminate potential mosquito resting and breeding sites. Think outside the box, and consider where water might pool and become stagnant.


4. Vip Wrist Band

Having a VIP pass is like a badge of honour and a conversation starter all rolled into one. Slip on a mosquito wristband and they will diffuse natural, non-toxic essential oils that repel mosquitos and bugs. Wrist bands are great companions on camping trips, hikes, or paddles on lakes. They are also refillable, so they won’t go to waste. The natural oils’ active ingredients are released into the air around you; they help to mask the scents of your body, making it harder for mosquitoes to find you.

Ahhh the irresistible itch of scratching a mosquito bite, a classic tale as old as time. We know we shouldn’t scratch, but sometimes the temptation is just too strong to resist. It’s a battle of self-control, but in the end, the itch always wins. A gel or cream can provide fast, temporary relief from pain and itching of an insect bite. The cooling sensation will take away the urge to scratch and calm the area.

A fortress of fine mesh or a layer of clothing can stand guard against tiny invaders. A protective layer serves as a simple yet effective solution for keeping mosquitoes and other flying insects away, providing protection and peace of mind. By preventing mosquito bites, it helps reduce the transmission of mosquito-borne diseases within communities.
