December holidays can be an exciting time to spend time with family and friends and relax, but leaving home to go relax at your holiday destination means that you might not be able to book a pest control service for all the pesky summer pests. Here are 3 tips for pest-proofing your holiday destination from mosquitoes without needing to spend a lot of money or needing to call someone:
Use Citronella for defence:
Citronella oil is the key ingredient in citronella candles that produces a strong scent that interferes with mosquitoes’ ability to locate their prey. Citronella candles repel mosquitoes with their citronella oil scent, providing an effective and pleasant solution for a mosquito-free holiday atmosphere.
Camouflage with Coconut Oil:
While coconut oil can be deeply nourishing for your skin, it also has fatty acids that make it a great pest-proofing repellent, especially for mosquitoes. Apply a thin layer to your skin to keep those pesky insects at bay this holiday.
Fan the Breeze:
Mosquitoes are not strong fliers. Having a fan on can create enough airflow to keep them away from you, and we all know how valuable a fan can be during the December heat of South African weather.
Whether you’re traveling across the country, going to the beach, camping along a river, or simply resting at home, you can use these simple DIY mosquito repellent remedies. These are excellent, environmentally friendly alternatives to chemical sprays.
