What makes the killer mosquito so dangerous?
Mosquito world's deadliest animalNotwithstanding their harmless-sounding name—Spanish for “little fly”—they carry life-ravaging diseases. The news is full of the Zika Virus scare. The worst disease by the numbers is malaria, which kills more than 600,000 people every year; another 200 million cases incapacitate people are sick for days at a time. It threatens half of the world’s population and causes billions of dollars in lost productivity annually. Other mosquito-borne diseases include dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis.
There are more than 2,500 species of mosquito, and mosquitoes are found in every region of the world except Antarctica. During the peak breeding seasons, they outnumber every other animal on Earth, except termites and ants. And they affect population patterns on a grand scale: In many malarial zones, the disease drives people inland and away from the coast, where the climate is more welcoming to mosquitoes. Live near the water or have standing water on your property – beware!
Natural Mosquito Repellent for Yard Area
An all-natural mosquito repellent for your yard should contain only natural ingredients that are laboratory proven to work. It should not contain any dangerous chemicals. It must be safe for the entire family, pets, and the environment including waterways. It should work at any altitude and in windy regions. And, it MUST KILL mosquitoes and other biting insects and REPEL (not attract) mosquitoes creating a dome of protection over the area where it is sprayed, ideally for up to 2 weeks.
Of course, this is our top recommendation as is exactly what Mosquito Magician – our Mosquito Killer Spray does for your lawn and garden.
Pest Control Candles
Citronella Candles bug repellingScented candles that contain citronella oil for repelling mosquitos in your yard may repel a certain number of mosquitoes in close range. Usually, citronella oil blocks the scents from human bodies that mosquito radar detects making us invisible to them.
To be effective, you need to be close to the citronella oil candle with very little wind or breeze so the candle does not blow out. Stepping outside the safe zone could result in more bites.
How to get rid of mosquito bites on your skin
You can’t get rid of mosquito bites once you have them, of course—but there are things you can do to minimize the itching and irritation that come with them.
As soon as you realize you have a mosquito bite, wash it with soap and warm water right away.
Some of the natural home remedies that can help you get rid of the annoying symptoms of a mosquito bite are:
Rubbing alcohol: Dab a small amount of isopropyl rubbing alcohol on the mosquito bite to dry it out.
Hydrocortisone cream: Rub a bit of hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion on the bite to reduce itchiness.
Witch hazel: The witch hazel plant contains both anti-itch and anti-inflammatory properties. Dab some on the mosquito bite and surrounding area.
Epsom salts: Take an Epsom salt bath or soak a washcloth in very warm water and Epsom salts, then apply it to the affected area.
Ice compress: Fill a plastic bag with crushed ice and apply the compress to the mosquito bite to curb swelling.
Antihistamines: Take an oral antihistamine to reduce swelling and itching.
Of course, it’s best to avoid mosquito bites in the first place by effectively repelling them—ideally, without harming the environment.
Our nontoxic mosquito repellent helps keep the mosquitoes that can transmit Zika and West Nile virus away from your property and your family without endangering your children, pets or other wildlife.
