The coming of summer means that the mosquito season begins. This annoying bug damages humans from common symptoms such as scratching and skin irritation to deadly diseases such as dengue fever and chika virus.
To prevent bites on mosquitoes, you must first prevent the worms from coming outdoors to your home, such as trails and parks. Things that have water, such as planters, tires, swimming pools, toys, pollen, bird floats, and trash cans, can be mosquito breeding sites around the residence. So you have to clean it every week.
Although we have taken action to reduce the number of mosquitoes around us, the worm is still thriving. The next act is a way to keep mosquitoes from biting people. One option is to use a mosquito repellent registered with EPA. This mosquito repellent should contain ingredients such as lemon eucalyptus oil, DEET chemicals, paranthanide, picardidine, 2-undecanone and IR3535. If you are using sunscreen, you should use an insecticide first and apply sunscreen.
When you go out, wrapping your body with clothes is another way. If you wear brightly colored clothing, you should wear long sleeved shirts and ankle-length pants as much as possible. Clothes treated with permethrin are also on the market and can be followed by mosquitoes after several washes. Permethrin is a chemical that combats mosquitoes and ticks and can also be used in other products, such as tents, pants, boots, and socks. However, the use of permethrin should be regulated because it can cause skin irritation if it is contained too much.
If you do not have an insect screen when you are indoors, it is better to close the windows or doors. Use available air conditioning. When sleeping at night, mosquitoes can be blocked with permethrin-treated mosquito nets.
Mosquitoes are annoying, but we should not spoil our summer. We should go a step ahead of them and enjoy a lot of activity during the summer season.
