A wide choice of mosquito repelling means

Mosquito repellingMosquitoes are quite widespread almost in all continents, and each one has its own remedies for annoying insects. Their bites are not as painful, as dangerous because mosquitoes are carriers of dangerous diseases like dengue, malaria, yellow fever and many other. By biting people these tiny insects can cause aggressive allergic reaction.

Some mosquitoes prefer animals and birds instead of people, some use mixed diet, biting both humans and animals. The most of insects are attracted by the heat produces by human body, as well as by carbon dioxide produced by breathing lungs. This peculiarity was used for creating propane-powered mosquito repelling zappers that attract mosquitoes in the same way as people do, distracting them from the real victims. These devices are usually put near living houses and in the gardens, where there is a danger to be caught by a flight of biting insects.

Mosquito zappers send signals similar to human body, producing heat and carbon dioxide trails that are two major attractive features for blood-seeking bugs. However this trap makes them imprisoned in a net where they have nothing except dehydration. Sometimes the devices also contain some other chemicals that are used for attracting wider range of insects.

The effectiveness of such devices is rather high, however they are not enough to get rid of all mosquitoes around your house or in the courtyard. There are lots of insects flying around, and the zapper should be turned on constantly. Female mosquitoes can hide in shadowy garden even during the daytime.

It is far more efficient to use such mosquito repelling zeppers together with more commonly used repelling substances that are widely spread and available for everyone. Among such substances there are vitamin B-1, natural vanilla, marigolds, citrosa plant, garlic. These natural herbs and substances act as repellents. Some creams with real vanilla can be used as a repellent for skin, as well as marigold and citrosa plant oil. These traditional ingredients act less aggressively than chemical repelling substances, however they do not affect skin and body badly. For better effectiveness, you just need to re-use them more frequently.

According to specialists, one of the most effective mosquito repelling methods is physical barriers. If you like to spend the time outside, try to wear shirts with long sleeves, long pants, socks and closed shoes. Try to use light-toned clothes, it seems less attractive for bugs. Face still remains unprotected, however you can use herbal repelling cream on it.

The other physical barrier is a mosquito net. It is very popular in southern countries as a protection while sleeping. For a good effect the net should be pulled around the bed with some spare space on its sides, as while your body is close to the net, it is an achievable target for mosquitoes.

Besides mechanical, herbal and physical barriers there is one more method of fighting mosquitoes – a chemical method. Repellents make your body tasteless for bugs, tricking them by misleading them with the help of chemical substances. There are also chemical insecticides, poisons that kill mosquitoes after the contact with covered surface.
