Mosquitoes are tough pests to avoid. They are abundant, aggressive, and have several abilities that allow them to detect human presence. To neutralize these pests and protect your property, Mosquito Hunters™ offers mosquito prevention services in the Edwardsville area. We provide barrier treatments, property inspections, and friendly support from our expert Technicians.
While we believe strongly that our expert prevention is the best way to overcome mosquitoes, we also encourage our Clients to seek as much protection as possible. This is particularly true when you’re away from home, as we cannot control the mosquito situation in your local park or nature reserve.
To protect yourself from bites, there are two great options. First, chemical repellents containing DEET or picaridin work very well. If you would prefer to go with a botanical option, lemon eucalyptus oil can produce similar results. For enhanced home protection, well-placed mosquito traps will certainly help.
Now that we’ve covered what works, let’s take a look at some products to avoid.
Mosquito Products That Don’t Work
Beware of gimmicks and too-good-to-be-true solutions when it comes to mosquito control. Since there’s a huge demand for protection, there are many over-hyped products that try to take advantage of your desperation. Here are some common products that will not protect you from mosquito bites:
- Smartphone Apps. You’ll find several options in the app store, all claiming to use predator noises (dragonflies) to repel mosquitoes through your phone. To understand why these don’t work, all you have to do is go to a local pond and see mosquitoes and dragonflies living side by side.
- Anti-Mosquito Bands. These are meant to be worn around your wrist. They usually give off mosquito repellent or sonic frequencies, but this will do next to nothing to repel mosquitoes.
- Citronella Candles. While these aren’t completely useless, the point is, that they don’t do anything that an ordinary candle can’t do.
