What Naturally Repels Mosquitoes?

Absolutely no one enjoys being bitten by mosquitoes, and neither do animals. After all, few things are as disruptive as an insect that seems to specialize in annoying almost all of the animal kingdom, except for those creatures that like to feed on mosquitoes. With a sharp, itch inducing bite, and a supremely irritating wingbeat, mosquitoes are universally hated. However, mosquitoes also have a darker reputation that extends beyond small irritants. These flying pests are the deadliest animal on the planet to humans, killing nearly one million people every year. This staggering figure explains why mosquitoes need to be treated with caution – they are deadly. In the United States, warming temperatures are beginning to expand the traditional habitat of disease-carrying mosquitoes northward, which spell bad news for the country and the continent. With such a threat on the horizon, it is important that you consider preventative measures. If you’re worried that you can’t defend yourself against mosquitoes while remaining environmentally conscious, think again.

Where did Brentwood natural mosquito control start?

Since ancient times, all-natural mosquito repellant has been used to keep mosquitoes and their diseases away from human populations. Most commonly, burning herbs and plants with particularly strong scents was often practiced to stave off exposure to swarms of mosquitoes. For example, Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian, documented the use of a horrible-smelling oil in lamps to create refuge from mosquitoes in Egypt. Since the dawn of humanity, mosquitoes have played a devastating role in killing humans, and countermeasures have been important ever since. So, what modern-day all natural mosquito repellants are available nowadays?

In modern times, oils are often used as an all-natural alternative to harsher mosquito control methods. Citronella is a great example of an effective, natural treatment, and its smell is one that you probably recognize. An essential oil, citronella is made using a mixture of herbs, and it is frequently used in outdoor candles that create a smokey barrier around your outdoor living area. In addition, you can also use lavender, lemon eucalyptus oil, cinnamon oil, thyme oil, and others as an all-natural mosquito repellant. You’re getting the gist at this point. Essential oils are a very effective mosquito control treatment, but certain mixtures are more effective than others.
