Many studies have shown that mosquitoes hate the aroma of certain plants, mainly ones that produce strong scents. These include cooking herbs, such as basil, lemon balm, rosemary, mint, and many more.

If there is a small garden in your backyard, try to put some of those plants in it. We can guarantee that as long as those herbages are well-maintained, the mosquito population will definitely decrease, bit by bit. Also, you can harvest them whenever you need some cooking ingredients!

Try the Fragrances

As we mentioned earlier, mosquitoes are afraid of strong scents. So, if you are living in a place that doesn’t have room garden plants, utilizing aromatherapy candles and essential oils can be a great second option.

Also, it’s far simpler to apply the candles and oils rather than maintaining the plants. You only need to burn the candle’s incense to get rid of the insects. For oils, just spray them on your body every few hours, and our annoying little friends will definitely avoid you.

Beware of the Water Puddle

Yes, a water puddle is a perfect place for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Our attempts to eradicate these creatures will go in vain if they successfully manage to breed in our lovely home. So, what should we do?

Easy, one only needs some patience and diligence. Every person in the house has to patrol around the yard and check for a small crate with water. Then, bury them with the soil – that’s it!

Mosquito Nets, Why Not?

Before the pesticides were invented, people tried their best to get rid of the mosquitoes using a trawl-like net. Well, we can bring this old-but-gold technology back to life once again!

Well, it’s quite simple, right? However, we must remind you of something. These tricks may be effective for most people, yet some exceptional cases require more extreme countermeasures concerning mosquito invasion. So, don’t be afraid to seek the help of professional insect killers!
