Protect your home and loved ones from the dangers of the rainy season—mosquito infestation.

The rainy season, especially in the Philippines, brings a refreshing respite from the scorching heat, but it also brings a host of unwelcome guests—mosquitoes. These tiny insects are not just annoying; they can also be dangerous, transmitting diseases like dengue and malaria. But fear not! There are many ways you can prevent mosquito bites and keep your home and loved ones safe from mosquito danger.

Understanding the Threat

Mosquitoes thrive in the rainy season, laying eggs in stagnant water. The rainy season in the Philippines is particularly conducive to mosquito breeding due to the frequent and heavy rainfall. During this time, it is crucial to be proactive in protecting our loved ones from the potential health risks posed by mosquito bites.

How to Prevent Mosquito Bites

1. Wear clothing that covers the skin

Reduced exposed areas of the body mean fewer chances of being a target for mosquitoes! When you're going outside or to places that can possibly be infested by mosquitoes, make sure you are wearing clothes with enough skin protection.

2. Mosquito-proof your indoor and outdoor spaces

Mosquito-proofing may seem like a difficult task but, in reality, it’s not as complicated as it sounds! Here are simple ways that you can start doing today to help you through:

  • Eliminate Standing Water: Regularly check and remove stagnant water in pots, containers, and gutters.
  • Use Mosquito Nets: Install nets on windows and doors to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
  • Keep Your Surroundings Clean: Regular cleaning reduces the breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

3. Use natural pesticides

One way you can keep mosquitoes away from your home is by making natural mosquito pesticides. Pesticides are good for ridding your space of mosquitoes as it kills a variety of pests including, besides insects, rodents, fungi, and unwanted plants.

And you don't need to worry about how you can make your own pesticide at home, you can simply just look at your own kitchen or materials at home and find what you need already! Just prepare a spray bottle and put an essential oil of mosquito-repellent plants such as lavender, tea tree, peppermint, lemon, or eucalyptus oil, and you already have you can now make your home mosquito-free!

4. Set up mosquito traps

Mosquito traps are a sure way to rid your space of mosquitoes. You can either get yourself some nice mosquito traps such as killer lamps or make your own DIY traps. There are a bunch of tutorials available online, but here’s an easy one for you:

  • Prepare a water container or an empty water bottle and a soap or detergent and mix them together. Mosquitoes are attracted to stagnant water, and soaps/detergents are surfactants that lessen the surface tension of water, making mosquitoes drown when they try to lay their eggs.
  • Put the container away from the sun and the wind; remember that mosquitoes prefer dark and humid environments.

5. Use mosquito-repellent lotions

Sure, you’ve made your space mosquito-free but what about your outdoor trips and hangouts? That’s where mosquito-repellent lotions are best—keeping you free from mosquito bites wherever you go! You just need to apply it on exposed skin multiple times a day and you’re all good.
