All Natural Mosquito Treatment

Mosquitos are such a bother. Sitting outdoors should be a pleasant time, enjoying nature and beautiful surroundings. Then you hear the tell tale buzzing sound. It comes and goes, but when you go inside, you’re covered in welts and itching for days. When the pests follow you inside, you’ve got a real, persistent problem. Mosquito prevention is important to you, but so is taking care of the environment you’re trying to enjoy. What kind of all natural mosquito treatment can you use?

Protective Plants

There are mosquito repelling plants that you can plant outside of your home to keep the pests away from the home. These plants are:

  • Lavender
  • Marigolds
  • Catnip
  • Citronella
  • Rosemary
  • Basil
  • Scented Geraniums
  • Floss Flower
  • Peppermint
  • Lemon Balm (Potted Only)

Planting or potting these near entrances will help to keep mosquitos at bay.

Personal Protection

You want to keep mosquitos off of your skin, but you also want to keep harsh chemicals such as DEET off of it as well. Certain essential oils, when blended with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, are highly effective at repelling mosquitos. Such oils include:

  • Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
  • Geranium Oil
  • Citronella
  • Patchouli Oil
  • Thyme Oil
  • Clove Oil
  • Peppermint Oil
  • Cedar Oil
  • Neem Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil

Lemon Eucalyptus oil, Geranium oil, and Citronella are the most effective of these oils, but every body interacts differently with oils and mosquito attraction, so try out different combinations to find out what works best for you.

Professional Protection

If mosquitos have invaded your home, it’s time to call in the pros. Some things are beyond DIY solutions.

When choosing a professional with green treatment in mind, be sure to find one who will do all natural mosquito treatment. These treatments aren’t quite as effective as traditional chemicals, but it comes with the great peace of mind that your treatment of choice is as kind to the environment as possible while still greatly reducing the pests in your home.

The natural treatment your professional uses will act like a signal jammer for mosquitos. They normal pick up on subtle scent indicators that food is present in the home. They can smell you and even your pets as tasty treats. The signal jammers will stuff up their noses, so to speak, so that they can’t tell that any food is nearby, and they’ll go to look elsewhere.
