Have you ever wondered how dangerous mosquitos are and how numerous the solutions for making them gone exist? Well, such insects often cause a lot of trouble for the human body, from aesthetics problems to annoying itching and pain. Diseases are not something that you can avoid by simply doing nothing and taking some measures when you want to remain healthy and with a clear skin is the right decision for you and your family.

Mosquitos are considered one of the most dangerous insects flying around the world, due to the risk of getting sick they carry around. These insects are responsible for more deaths that the animals you see on television looking so devious and wild like sharks or bears. A simple bite from a mosquito can cause incurable diseases and permanent damage to the human body. Mosquitos drain almost 2 million gallons of blood from humans each and every year. Doesn’t that sound scary? Here’s what you might want to know about possible effects of mosquito bites and how to prevent them:

They need to be attracted and killed

The first thing you need to have in mind when talking about mosquitos is how you are going to get rid of them. There are a lot of methods on the market that could save you from the dangerous bites of such creatures and one of these options is bug zappers. These are electronic devices that attract the unwanted insects and kill them instantly. Having one of these in your backyard will allow you to say goodbye to the uninvited guests. This way, you can enjoy your outside barbeque without worrying about all the diseases you can catch because of bug bites. As you can see here, there are many reviews on the Internet regarding this type of product.

Blowing them away rather than slapping your skin

Slapping a mosquito dead on your skin will spread all the blood inside them on yourself. This is exactly what you want to avoid. Infested blood can transmit diseases that will alter your body in time. Some of the diseases transmitted by mosquitos do not even have symptoms to show you something is wrong. Bacteria and viruses can live dormant inside your body for up to 30 years. You didn’t expect that, right? Try gently blowing the mosquitos away from your body and rub the bite with sanitary alcohol. It is ideal to avoid this kind of situation rather than dealing with it afterwards.

Candles, coils and certain plants

There are specific scented candles, coils or plants that you can place around your garden in order to make unwanted insects fly around. Repelling mosquitos with natural plants never been easier. All you have to do is plant around herbs like lemon balm, catnip (if you have a cat or cats usually spend time around your garden avoid this method), basil, lavender or peppermint. Some of them actually kill the mosquitos and the larvae they leave behind, so it is a very efficient method if you do not have any other option you could stick to. Coils that once they burn produce a smoke which is mosquito-repellent are also efficient. All you have to do is buy one of those and place it strategically outside, where you are planning to spend the next couple of hours.


Eating certain foods can make mosquitos avoid your skin. Although it mostly depends on your blood type, attracting mosquitos can be highly dependent on what you are eating. Aliments like garlic, milk, salt, apple cider vinegar and many other can help with bug bites. Also, rubbing orange or lemon peels on the exposed areas of skin in order to repel insects can also be an option. Even if it sounds sticky, it does not have the same uncomfortable smell as body bug repellent sprays do.

Ultrasonic devices

Ultrasonic devices are recommended especially indoors where you cannot stand the smell of anti-bug sprays and other products. There are actual apps for your mobile phones that promise to make every mosquito in your range go away, although it is not tested. Every solution is to be tried after all. In addition to that, there are ultrasonic devices that actually work and their effect is proven. Again, bug zappers will do the job if placed properly. Try searching online for how they work and how efficient they are.

Don’t scratch

If you eventually got bitten and you have nothing else to do, at least make sure you do not abusively scratch the affected area. This could lead to infections and further irritation, not to mention the development of rashes.
