Most mosquitoes are highly active during dusk and dawn. Thus it is imperative that you protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquitoes all-round the clock and it doesn’t even matter if you are on the ground floor or high up on the tenth floor.

How to maintain a safe environment around house?

While you are using Mortein Mosquito Repellent to get rid of these bug versions of vampires, you also need to keep in mind how you can maintain a mosquito free zone around your house.

  1. Puddle Free Surroundings – Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, remove stagnant water around the house so that mosquitoes don’t have place to breed in.
  2. Change water in collection pots – It is a misconception that mosquito breeds only in drain water or dirty water. Stagnant fresh water is equally a favorable place for mosquitoes so change bird baths, clean water collection pots and pans, maintain swimming pool well with disinfectant
  3. Plant mosquito repelling plants and herbs like citronella, garlic, basil, rosemary, peppermint – near areas which are prone to collect water.
  4. Clean your house frequently – A clean house is a difficult place for mosquitoes to be. Clean your house and surroundings, the garden, the lawns often so that you are destroying the potential breeding grounds

If you are a mosquito magnet, don’t worry, you can always use the varied Mortein Mosquito Repellent products and protect your family and loved ones.

    I’m originally from Malaysia and we had a ridiculous amount of mosquitoes! But now ever since I moved to the US I never get bit. The whole puddle/water thing was definitely why I always got bit (monsoons!)

    I’ve searched high and low for a product that wards off mosquitoes and finally came across a product that works so well. Before using it I didn’t want to be in my backyard because the mosquitos were eating me alive.

    Never heard of this brand, but ANYTHING to keep mosquitoes at bay is great in my book! I’m from originally from Florida where mosquitos bites are as prevalent as palm trees!

    Such great tips! They are not as bad around my house but around my parents house since they live closer to the coast. They were always the worst after it rained.

    So true, the mosquito net fitted in all our windows and doors still don’t stop them from swarming in. The fear of catching the diseases is always there. Thanks for sharing the information, we simply can’t make do without a mosquito repellent these days.

    Such Pesky monsters ! Yet I prefer to use minimal chemicals and natural methods of avoiding mosquitoes .

    My way of looking at them is little different from others. For me, they aren’t the bloody blood suckers but the females who are ready to sacrifice their lives to cherish the feeling of motherhood. Only female mosquitoes bite. They need blood to produce their offspring.

    Well, it’s really a kind of Dharma-sankat but when there’s a choice between my children and mosquitoes, I’ll prefer the lives of mine over theirs.

    And thanks for suggesting the names of mosquito repelling plants along with Mortein description. Liked the mosquito pic as well. 🙂

    I didn`t know that there are so many products to fight the mosquitoes. The mosquitoes that we have here are not so dangerous but they are so annoying in the morning and they always wake me up.
