During the summer BBQ season, the mosquitos are out and ready to chow down! You may be running to grab your citronella candles, but it’s important to know how these pests operate.
Here are a few tips to note:
Blow them away! Any wind or breeze makes it difficult for mosquitoes to fly. Using plug-in fans are a great way to keep them away. Usually these pests fly low to the ground to avoid wind. Keeping fans directed downward to the lower half of your body will help!
A common misconception is using citronella candles. Citronella candles and coils may have natural repellant properties but they only work if a mosquito flies straight through the smoke.
Wear lighter colours! Mosquitos are attracted to colours that contrast with the horizon. They are more attracted to darker colours.
Avoid peak mosquito hours – when the wind dies down at dawn/dusk.
