6 Natural Ways To Win The Fight With Mosquitoes Once And For All

Did you know that mosquitos have blood standards? In a room full of people, without us knowing, based on our blood type, mosquitos select their favorite buddies to bite and bite and bite… Researchers back this up too, since recent studies prove that mosquitoes can rapidly learn and remember the smells of hosts. That’s what makes some people more preferable than others.

If you’re one of them, we’re on the same boat. In a room of 20 people, if you put 20 mosquitos in it, I’m going to get out of the room with 20 bites in my body. The moral of the story: I’m their favorite buddy. And that doesn’t flatter me. At all. But, that’s the way it is. They say you have a sweet blood if mosquitos bite you, but I don’t really care for that. What I care of, is for this phenomena to stop.

My body during summer is full of red marks which after me itching them like crazy turn violet. Then they turn blue. Then dark blue. And I’m left with a body as if I was in an abusive relationship with myself or God knows. However, I’ve learned some natural ways how to keep this away from happening. And that is keeping mosquitos away. Today we are sharing some natural ways to protect yourself from mosquitoes without using chemical repellents.

This is by far one of the best solution, because not it only it protects you, but your pets as well and also have a beautiful garden. These plants give an effective solution against mosquitos and at the same time add beauty to your yard. To avoid these unpleasant mosquitoes, you can sow herbs such as horsemint, basil, rosemary, garlic, catnip, lavender, citronella grass, or marigold.

 

2. Lavender

Another solution which excludes chemical sprays and creams, is lavender. Apply it in drops on your skin or make a body spray with essential body oil. Most people love lavender and mosquitos hate it.

Citronella is the great solution if you can’t have repellant plants at home or you’re allergic to them. This solution is also approved by research and doesn’t have any side effects.

 

4. Apple cider vinegar

Except for being known for weight loss, to reduce cholesterol and lower blood sugar,  apple cider vinegar can be one of the best solutions to make your own liquid against mosquito at home. For additional effect, add some citronella. Find the place in your house where the insects normally gather and apply this spray there. The magical results will happen.

 

5. Soapy water

Mosquitos are attracted to soapy water and that is where they become trapped. So, if you are spending time with friends or family members in your yard and those annoying mosquitos start to kick in; just place a plate with soapy water nearby and say bye-bye to suffering.

 

6. Garlic

You can boil garlic and spray the mixture in places where mosquitos gather. Eating garlic helps to keep the mosquitoes away so this is the best news for garlic lovers.
