How to keep Mosquitoes away this Summer

How to keep Mosquitoes away this Summer

With Summer right around the corner, we are all spending more time outside enjoying the sunshine and warm weather.  One of the downfalls of being outside are the bugs.  But there are things we can do to keep the mosquitoes away.

Wear light colored clothes

A little-known fact is that mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors. This may be because of the contrasting dark colored clothes provide against the horizon during dusk when mosquitoes are most active.

Use Bug Spray

It’s a good idea to apply insect repellent before going outdoors, especially in late afternoon and evening.

Avoid certain times of day

Generally, mosquitoes are more active at dusk and dawn, although this may differ depending on the species.

Wear the right clothes

If you are going to be doing yard work, or working in the garden, you may want to wear long sleeves and pants to protect your skin. Exposed skin can be an invitation to that pesky bug.

Remove standing water

Most mosquito’s eggs need water in order to hatch. Make your yard less appealing to mosquitoes by remembering to empty water out of glasses, mugs, cups, buckets and spades if being left outside.

Keep air circulated

Mosquitoes aren’t strong fliers (that’s why they are more active during dusk and dawn when there is little wind).

What to eat to avoid mosquito bites

There are many discussions online around eating certain types of food such as garlic can help repel mosquitoes. For some people it may seem to work, but the majority of the time it has little to no effect.

Plant Mosquito Repelling Plants

There are quite a few plants that Mosquitoes do not like or avoid.  They can add color and style while keeping your yard a bite free zone.

Try some of these plants:

Marigolds
Citronella
Basil
Lemon Balm
Catnip
Lavender
Peppermint
Citrosum (Mosquito Plant)
Sage
Rosemary
