Mosquito bites are not only an extremely unpleasant occurrence, but also a real test for comfortable spending time in the fresh air. They seem to deliberately select moments of family gatherings and work on the site in order to create additional inconvenience. Although not significantly painful, mosquito bites do cause an unpleasant itch, especially for allergy sufferers whose experience is complicated by swelling and long-term marks on the skin. Moreover, in rare cases, mosquitoes can transmit various infections, including malaria, encephalitis, and yellow fever.

There are many folk and household methods of mosquito control. “Aromatherapy” using the scents of coniferous plants, lemon, mint and herbs can repel mosquitoes. Sticky traps containing sugar or yeast attract mosquitoes, which either get stuck in the glue or suffocate.

There are also many products on the market in the form of repellents - lotions, sprays, tablets, plates, spirals, aerosols. They are effective in repelling mosquitoes, but their effect is limited in time and they are not a permanent solution to the problem.

There are more technologically advanced options such as electric repellers and fumigators, but these are also temporary measures. According to the experience of many, such purchases do not always bring the expected results.

However, it is encouraging that there is professional treatment of areas for mosquitoes. Pest control professionals can identify sources of mosquitoes and effectively eliminate insects using proven products. This treatment method appears to be significantly more effective than temporary measures such as aerosols, repellents and scarers.
