These methods will help you prevent that mosquito from aiming his wrath at you
With this warm weather, we spend a lot of time outside and we also like to throw open our windows at night to let the cool air in. The result: mosquitoes coming from far and wide to have a taste of our blood. To the mosquito, this is a nice meal, but to us, it just means having a bunch of itchy red bumps. What can you do about it? Well, there are quite a few methods to keep those nasty insects as far away from you as possible. Have you tried these five tricks before?
No more mosquito bites for you!
1. The fan
Mosquitoes aren’t able to fly very well when it’s windy. Even a light breeze is too much for them already. You can definitely use this weakness against them: just turn on the fan! Try aiming the fan downwards a little because the mosquitoes will try to fly a little lower to avoid the breeze.
2. Light clothes
These nasty insects most often strike when the sun is either just rising or just setting. They will look for colours that contrast with the horizon, like black and other dark colours. If you wear light colours, you will be less visible to them mosquito and therefore less appetizing. White clothes might not be handy when it comes to barbecue sauce and marinated meat, but it’s definitely a good trick if you don’t want to be bitten.
