These pesky biters can be found year-round, but are particularly prevalent during warmer months.
They are great at biting and stealing a human’s blood incognito, as they produce an anaesthetic when they bite.
Mosquitos are most active on warm evenings, so cover up any bare skin up to prevent getting bitten.
Instead of using chemical-based products to repel the nasty biters, opt for crushed lavender flowers.
Rub the mixture on areas that are particularly sensitive and susceptible to bites.
The fragrance and oils produced repel adult mosquitoes and lavender has analgesic, antifungal, and antiseptic qualities, meaning it will also calm and soothe the skin.
The Eucalyptus Gum Tree is also worth investing in. This plant is well known for its insect repelling qualities thanks to its pleasant menthol aroma.
