Buzz Off! Keep Mosquitos at Bay This Summer

We all hate to hear that fateful high-pitched humming noise that means a mosquito is nearby. They always seem to bother you when you’re sleeping, bouncing right next to your ear. Swatting them away, or swatting them in general, only does the trick once in a while. Many a camping trip has become an unbearable event because of the little critters. So, let’s take a look at what we can do for mosquito treatment and control.

Bug Spray
This is a great option for when you’re going camping or out into the deep woods for any reason. The downside is the chemical smell that’s no more attractive to humans than it is to mosquitos. It usually does the trick, especially when you start using the serious stuff like Deep Woods Off! or similar brands. This is a good plan if you’re just looking for personal coverage or you’re already going camping or hunting so you really won’t mind the smell.

Mosquito Coils
These can be very effective if you are planning on hosting an outdoor event, or even when sitting around a campfire with your friends and family. Mosquito coils keep the insects away if you place them strategically around the seating area. These can be lifesavers and make sure that your outdoor event is spectacular.

Citronella Candles
These candles are useful if you enjoy sitting outside in your backyard at home. Mosquitos don’t like the citronella scent and will stay away. The candles are the most useful if you’re only trying to cover a small space. These can also be used indoors to keep the bugs at bay if they slip in through the screen door or follow you in from outside.

Professional Services
If you happen to live in an area with a lot of still water and swampland, you’ll find yourself with a mosquito problem that most of the usual suspects won’t help. Mosquito bites are annoying, but mosquitos also carry disease like West Nile virus and malaria. It’s important to make sure you aren’t unfortunate enough to experience an infestation. Professionals can help in this endeavour, and help make sure your property stays relatively mosquito-free.

Summertime is a favorite time of year for many of us, but mosquitos can really ruin a good time. Remember these tips and tricks to make sure your summer memories will survive intact, and you can enjoy all that glorious sunshine.
