Repel Mosquitoes

Summary: You can repel mosquitoes without applying smelly lotions and sprays. New developments have made controlling the pests easier. These products are affordable and claim to leave you mosquito free.

When the summer months roll around, we cherish the warm nights sitting around a fire surrounded by our friends. The least desirable outcome after one of those nights is to discover multiple, itchy, red bumps on our skin. Not only are mosquito bites annoying, but they can also potentially lead to serious health problems. To repel these pests, we usually rely on sprays and lotions that smell bad and taste worse. New products have been created to make repelling mosquitoes easier and hassle-free.

***image5***One such device is the ThermaCELL Compact Mosquito Repellant Appliance. The ThermaCELL possesses many favorable characteristics that can apply to any situation. The ThermaCELL is a pocket-sized device that protects the holder in a 15 feet x 15 feet area from mosquitoes and other insects. The ThermaCELL offers maximum portability, and can be taken to any outdoor occasion with ease. It is perfect for a lakeside party or the family camping trip. Enjoy hunting? Don't worry! The ThermaCELL cannot be detected by game. In addition, each unit comes with 12 hours of protection, and additional refill packets are available. Also, the ThermaCELL contains no DEET (the chemical in sprays that causes the smell). The ThermaCELL is also offers affordability, a necessity in these economic times.

Want to get to the root of the problem? Mosquito larvacides are your answer. A product like Altosid Pro G Granules is designed to kill the mosquito larvae before they mature into biting adults. Simply apply the granules into any accumulation of water around your house (water gardens, flower pots, bird baths, rain gutters, ponds) and the larvae of the mosquito will be exterminated before they mature. Treatment are effective for 30 days, and treat up to 100 feet of water. Altosid is made with the chemical Bt-israelensis (Bt-i), a biological pesticide that will not harm any people, fish, or wildlife.

Does the natural way to repel mosquitoes appeal to you more? If so, Mosquito Barrier is the product for you. Mosquito Barrier is most effectively used when sprayed on your yard. It kills adult mosquitoes immediately, suffocates the larvae, and coats the plants to prevent the pests from returning. Mosquito Barrier is 99.3% garlic juice with some food preservatives and contains no harmful chemicals, making it safe around children and pets. You may wonder if your yard will smell like garlic after application. Answer: No. You will not notice any smell, but the mosquitoes, possessing a 10,000 times greater sense of smell, sure will. In addition, only four applications of Mosquito Barrier will do the trick for the entire mosquito season. Each quart of Mosquito Barrier covers 1.25 acres, so only one bottle should suffice for your yard.

Repelling mosquitoes does not have to be through smelly lotions and spray. Take back your summer and enjoy your outdoor activities without the fear of a mosquito bite.
