How
nice would it be to enjoy the cool breeze of the evenings in your yard without
being pestered by mosquitoes? Or better still, to swing your doors and windows
wide open knowing fully well that any mosquito that dares trespass would meet
its instant death?

Well,
if you have been ruminating about this, we’ve got good news and bad news. The
bad news is that mosquitoes aren’t respecter of persons – until you take
concrete actions to keep them off, they won’t stay away from your home. And
yes, the good news is that you can quickly kill them off as soon as they set
their feet on your home without breaking the bank or hurting yourself.

Wish
to know how? Here is how

1. Blow them away with fans

Mosquitoes
are equipped with wings only strong enough to carry them through free flowing
air torrents. Put strong air stream in their path and they would be blown away
for good. The key here is placing the fan at strategic points – windows, patio
and doors are excellent points. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes
to selecting the right size of fan. You just need to keep trying until you find
something that works.

2. Swat them to death

Probably
the oldest tactic for killing mosquitoes; it still works till today. All you
need is an object strong enough to deliver a strong force that would kill off
the annoying pest. A rolled newspaper, a book and even your palms will do the
job. If you have got the finances, you can go for fly swatter – it doesn’t cost
that much. Of course, this option will only work if mosquitoes visit once in a
while.

3. Kill them off with DEET spray

Pesticides,
particularly DEET work well on not just mosquitoes but other insect pests like
bug and flea. However, its repelling power only lasts for a short while, making
it ineffective for fighting mosquitoes when they come in large numbers. For
your safety, check to see if the pesticide you intend using has the approval of
regulatory agencies.

4. Kill them at larvae stage

In
life, the earlier we do certain things, the better – exterminating mosquitoes
is no exception. Believe it or not, it is a lot easier to kill off mosquitoes
at larvae stage (adolescent stage for humans) than fighting them off when they
have grown into full-on adult mosquitoes. The good news is that you don’t have
to break a sweat to do this – a little bit of consistency is all that is
needed. So, here are 4 tactics you can use right now to kill off larvae
mosquito

  • Use mosquito dunks: Mosquito dunks have been listed first for a good reason – it works real well and is inexpensive.
  • Use bleach:The bleach we mean here is the one you use for whitening your clothes when they get soiled. Do ensure that the bleach you use contains sodium hypochlorite up to 5.25%.
  • Use Cinnamon:Mosquito larvae are allergic to Cinnamon, making cinnamon an excellent mosquito killer.
