It’s difficult to get a good night’s sleep with mosquitoes constantly buzzing around you. Apart from the buzzing, their bites cause itching and red bumps. They also cause various dangerous diseases. These diseases include West Nile Virus, Eastern Encaphalis Equine (EEE), and Zika Virus. So, how can you keep mosquitoes at bay and enjoy a peaceful night's sleep? 

Here are some effective tips to help you combat mosquitoes and get the restful sleep you deserve.

1. Use Mosquito Repellent

One of the best ways to resist mosquitoes is to use a good mosquito repellent cream. Choose a repellent that contains ingredients like DEET or picaridin for maximum effectiveness. Apply it to exposed skin before going to bed to create a barrier against mosquitoes.

2. Install Mosquito Nets

Using mosquito nets in your bedroom is a great way to keep mosquitoes from biting you at night. Unlike the first option, this one is a physical barrier. Installing nets is especially useful if you have toddlers at home. Using mosquito repellent and installing nets offers double protection which will ensure a good night’s sleep for you and your family. 

3. Use Fans

Mosquitoes dislike moving air, so using a fan while you sleep can help keep them away. The airflow will make it difficult for mosquitoes to make a grip on you and bite you.

4. Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes reproduce in stagnant water. Therefore it's important to eliminate stagnant water in and around your house including bird baths, flower pots, or any other containers. Keeping your surroundings dry and clean will effectively keep mosquitoes away from you

Some more ways to keep mosquitoes away:

✔ Use citronella candles or incense sticks when spending time outdoors to create a mosquito-free zone
✔ Invest in electronic mosquito traps that attract and capture mosquitoes using UV light or CO2
✔ Create your natural repellent sprays using a mixture of essential oils, witch hazel, and distilled water
