Mosquitos, while painful and aggravating, are often considered a simple part of life. True, mosquitos are a type of pest that thrives throughout most of the world, and while almost everyone has to deal with them, nobody has to submit to them and their relentless quest for your blood. Here are some ways to keep these pests out of your house and your life.

Seal Your Windows and Doors

Your first objective is to close up any gaps or openings around your house. Mosquitoes are very small, and even the tiniest entry point will suffice for them to enter your home. Therefore, install window screens if you don’t have them, and if you do, fix any tears they might have. As for the space between the bottom of your doors and the floor, a good door strip or weather strip will keep mosquitoes outside where they belong.

Deterring Mosquitoes with Natural Repellents

After you’ve closed off any openings which mosquitoes may use to get inside, here is a couple of all-natural repellents you can use to keep mosquitoes at bay.

There are many other ways to get rid of these annoying pests, such as spraying yourself with tea tree oil, sprinkling basil around the house, and buying an ultrasonic bug repellant, so if mosquitos are giving you trouble, you have many options for expelling them.
