Natural Pest Control For Mosquitoes
Go Natural With Citronella
Citronella is one of the most effective natural insect repellents. It’s derived from a plant that produces an oil that repels mosquitoes, flies, and fleas. The oil can be used in several ways: as a spray or candle. Simply spraying it on your exposed skin will help keep mosquitoes away for about two hours.
You can also burn citronella candles to keep mosquitoes at bay while you’re sitting outside in the evenings or spending time outdoors during the day. Citronella candles are available in many different scents so there’s sure to be one out there that will fit with your personal style!
Add Some Basil To Your Garden
Add some basil to your garden.
Basil is a natural mosquito repellent and can be planted around outdoor areas where you might spend time. You can also use it as a seasoning in cooking, making it more convenient than other natural repellents that require you to apply them directly to the skin or clothing. Basil grows well in containers, so if you have a small garden space, this would be an excellent choice!
Try Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus
You can also try using oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), also known as para-menthane-3,8-diol, which is derived from the lemon eucalyptus plant. This natural insect repellent has been proven effective against mosquitoes.
Catnip is not just a cat toy—it’s also an effective natural mosquito repellent. A 2001 study showed that catnip oil was 10 times more effective than DEET, the chemical in many commercial bug sprays. Catnip oil can be extracted from dried catnip leaves and added to candles, sprays and lotions. It can also be used in slightly larger doses as an infusion or tincture (a mixture of herbs steeped in alcohol).
Invest In A Bat House
Bats are great insect eaters, and they prefer mosquitoes. In fact, a single bat can consume up to 600 mosquitoes in just one hour! If you want to take advantage of their mosquito-slaughtering abilities, then you should consider investing in a bat house. Bat houses are available at most garden centers or hardware stores and they’re relatively easy to put up yourself. Here’s how:
- Choose an exposed location for your bat house like the side of your house or garage (they aren’t very tall). Make sure that it’s placed at least 8 feet off the ground and away from any trees or other obstacles that might obstruct the bats’ entrance into their new home.
- Drill holes about 1/4” wide along each side panel of your bat house using a drill bit designed for wood; these will be used by bats as passageways into their new lodgings once it has been installed correctly. It’s best if these holes face horizontal surfaces such as walls so that air circulation inside will be good enough for them without needing additional aeration systems such as fans running 24/7 year round which would cost quite a lot more money than just buying one pre-built wooden structure from Amazon priced around $30 USD currently (price subject matter changes over time). If possible make sure there won’t be any light shining through these openings when installed correctly because this could attract unwanted insects instead of those we want exterminated here!
- Mount your newly crafted shelter somewhere between seven feet high on walls facing eastwards so those flying insects will get lured inside by sunlight coming off mirrors inside structures built upon poles sticking into ground; place two boards against opposite sides where wall meets roof because this makes room
You can use some common herbs, plants and other items to naturally repel the pesky insects
In addition to DEET, there are other repellents you can use to naturally keep mosquitoes away.
These natural repellents may not work as well as DEET, or DEET-based products, but they are a good option if you don’t want to use chemical-based repellents.
Here’s a list of some common herbs and plants that repel mosquitoes:
- Catnip – Catnip is an herb that can be grown in your garden or purchased at the store. You can rub crushed catnip leaves on the skin or put them in boiling water and inhale the vapors to deter mosquitoes from biting you.
- Citronella – Citronella is another common ingredient found in many commercial insect repellants because it helps ward off insects including mosquitoes and fleas too! You can buy citronella candles online or make them yourself by putting dried citrus peels into tall jars with holes drilled into the lids for ventilation then lighting them when needed (make sure there isn’t any flammable materials nearby).
