1. Steam the house with orange peels
After enjoying dessert, instead of throwing away the peels of oranges and tangerines, dry them and use them to create a pleasant aroma in your house. In the evening, burn the dried orange peels around the house to release the orange scent and repel mosquitoes. The limonene in orange essential oil is effective in keeping mosquitoes away. You can also rub orange peel directly on areas of the skin that are often bitten by mosquitoes to prevent mosquito bites.
2. Using essential oils
Crush garlic and place it in areas where mosquitoes often congregate, such as bathrooms, under beds, and inside cabinets. You can also repel mosquitoes by using grapefruit, garlic, lemongrass, mint, and other essential oils. Simply mix these oils with soap or dishwashing liquid and apply them in the desired areas. Spraying these oils around the walls of your house not only eliminates odors but also repels mosquitoes.
3. House cleaner + essential oil
When cleaning your house, you can enhance its cleanliness by adding a few drops of lemongrass, licorice, eucalyptus, or mint essential oil to the floor cleaning water. These oils not only leave your house smelling fresh but also repel mosquitoes. Essential oils contain nepetalactone, a substance that deters mosquitoes from entering your living space.
4. Mosquito incense + wind oil
If you want to maximize the effectiveness of mosquito incense, soak it in a few drops of wind oil. The peppermint essence in wind oil is known to be a powerful enemy of mosquitoes. This simple trick can help eliminate mosquitoes ten times more effectively than using mosquito incense alone.
In addition to the above tips, it is important to regularly clean and sanitize your home, especially in humid areas where mosquitoes tend to hide. Planting anti-mosquito plants such as rosemary, pine needles, marigolds, lemongrass, and mint can also contribute to a mosquito-free and beautiful environment. Good luck!
