Home hacks to prevent mosquito bites

Mosquito bites can be both irritating and dangerous. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), mosquitoes are known to cause at least 1 million deaths a year due to the diseases that they spread. With statistics like this, it becomes important that you keep mosquitoes out of your home. So, how do you prevent mosquitoes from breeding in your home during the monsoons? There are various home hacks you can try. Here’s your go-to list! Camphor: This is a natural repellent that can be used liberally in your home. Start by closing all the doors and windows in your home and lighting some camphor. Keeping the doors and windows closed for a while will ensure that the fumes fill the air and remove all traces of mosquitoes. You can also choose to simply leave camphor balls around your home. Neem Oil: Another effective way to keep mosquitoes away is by using neem oil. It can be mixed with citronella oil or camphor oil, all of which are scents that repel mosquitoes. You can also mix a few drops of these oils in a bowl of water that can be kept in a corner of the room to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.–Agencies
