4 Things That Deter Mosquitoes From Biting You

Here are four things that mosquitoes don’t like, which can help in deterring them from biting you:

1 Citrus Plants and Other Natural Repellents: Mosquitoes are naturally repelled by certain plants like citrus fruits, lavender, basil, and catnip.

These plants contain oils that mosquitoes find unpleasant, thereby reducing their likelihood of biting.

2 Dry Environments: Mosquitoes thrive in damp or wet areas, particularly where stagnant water is present for breeding.

Keeping your surroundings dry by eliminating standing water sources such as birdbaths or pet dishes can significantly reduce mosquito attraction.

3 Cool Temperatures: Mosquitoes are sensitive to temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. They are less active and likely to bite in cooler environments.

Using air conditioning or staying in cooler areas can help deter mosquitoes.

4 Light-Colored Clothing: Mosquitoes are attracted to darker colors because they provide better contrast for them to see their targets.

Wearing light-colored clothing can make you less visible to mosquitoes, thereby reducing your chances of being bitten.

By incorporating these practices into your daily routine, you can effectively reduce your exposure to mosquitoes and their bites, potentially lowering the risk of mosquito-borne diseases like malaria.
