How To Eliminate Mosquitoes In This Summer

The World For Animals With You  Again In An Other Article About How To Eliminate Mosquitoes In This Summer , Many people suffer from mosquito bites especially in the summer
So That's why I wrote this article .

Did you know that there are about 3,500 types of mosquitoes in the world?
The majority of these insects are nothing but fish food as larvae in lakes and rivers and also annoying to animals and humans but about 40 species are know to be linked to be the carriers of the deadly decease called " Malaria ".
In around the world, they are three main types that are very dominant. Those three types are:
The " Culex pipiens, the Aedes albopictus ( also known as the tiger mosquito ) and the anopheles quadrimaculatus ".
The anopheles quadrimaculatus is the most dangerous of the three types because these mosquitoes are causing the spread of malaria where ever they can, around our planet. These are the shit spreaders, nasty flying machines. It is very important that we take precautions when mosquitoes are present,
not only there are annoying insects that get in your face and bite you but they It also can harm you and your family with decease.
Prepare yourself against them at all times. Using insecticides to kill them could harm you at the same time, we have to look for other methods, practices or alternatives.
Build these traps and control them season by season, getting the traps out around the first week in June will give you a head start for early protection.
Keep on patrol and top. Keep an eye in ponds around your area, take water samples and look for mosquito larva.

How Mosquitoes Hunt You

A mosquito can sense a person 20 feet away. Aedes mosquitoes are attracted to foot, sweat and skin odor more than CO2. They transmit dengue, yellow fever, encephalitis and West Nile virus and are more active during the day.

They can not survive very long during a period of low humidity. Anopheles mosquitoes are more attracted to adult foot, sweat and skin odor than CO2; they also are attracted to Limburger cheese; they prefer to feed indoors and they can transmit filariasis and are the primary transmitters of malaria. They are also more active at night. They are repelled by neem oils.
Culex mosquitoes are more attracted to CO2 than skin odor and can transmit St. Louis encephalitis, filariasis and West Nile virus. (Remember what attracts the different females when you make your mosquito baits.)

Mosquitoes that feed at night are more active during a full moon and are attracted to light traps. Carbon dioxide (from your expired breath) will attract most mosquitoes and other biting flies up to a range of about 50 feet. The one thing that all mosquitoes require to complete their life cycle is water. If people could manage all standing water, we would also manage all

Steps To Build Your Mosquito Trap


1. Take your sharp scissors and cut the top off your bottle making the funnel
for the trap.

2. Punch two matching sets of holes on the funnel piece and body so we can
put the wire through and make a handle.

3. Now that we have the holes done it's time to make our bait recipes - So go
ahead and make your batch. Pour your liquid or bait recipes into the body, line up the handle holes and seal with tape or use the stapler.

4. Insert the wire and using your wire cutter bend the wire as to make you
hanging handle.

You are done a great job.

How To Win The War Against Mosquitoes 


The very best mosquito control is defensive. The idea is to prevent them from invading your space in the first place. Here’s how:

1) Use exterior lighting that does not attract mosquitoes.

2) Put the proper screens on your windows, doors, vents and other openings.

3) Try to minimize or eliminate any areas of open water in your garden that might be placed for mosquitoes to lay and grow their eggs (they will either lay them on the water surface or the ground next to it.)

4) Plant mosquito repellent herbs and plants. There are many garden plants that naturally repel mosquitoes:

Rose–scented geraniums contain the natural insect repellents citronellal and geraniol—some gardeners report just stirring the leaves is enough to repel mosquitoes. Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), which is easy to grow from seed, contains the repellents citronellal, geraniol, and geranial.

Catnip: In August 2010, entomologists at Iowa State University reported to the American Chemical Society that catnip is ten times more effective than DEET, the chemical found in most commercial insect repellents. According to Iowa State researcher Chris Peterson, the reason for its effectiveness is still unknown. “It might simply be acting as an irritant or they don’t like the smell. But nobody knows why insect repellents work.”

Basil: If you crush a handful of basil (Ocimum basilicum), lemon thyme (Thymus x citriodorus) and/or lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) you also can repel mosquitoes for short periods. You can crush a handful of these leaves in your hand and rub them on any exposed skin. (Use any herb with
caution until you know how your skin will react.)

While citronella is used to repel mosquitoes in scented candles and torches, the living plants (Cymbopogon nardus or Citronella winterianus) are more effective because they have a stronger smell. Citronella is a perennial ‘clumping’ grass that grows to a height of 5 – 6 feet. It can be grown
directly in the ground in climate zones where frost does not occur. If grown in the garden or near the patio, it should be planted in the ‘background’, behind small decorative flowers and shrubs. In northern climate zones, citronella can be grown in a large pot or planter, ideally with casters, so it can be rolled indoors during winter. Once established, new plants can be propagated in early spring by splitting large clumps into smaller sections and replanting the new ‘starts’ in pots or other areas of the garden. Citronella plants are considered low maintenance, like most grasses, and they do best in full sun and well-drained locations. Periodic applications of nitrogen-richfertilizers will ensure vigorous growth, but this treatment only needs to beapplied once a year, preferably in early spring.

Horsemint, also known as Beebalm: Horsemint is an adaptable perennial plant that repels mosquitoes almost as well as citronella. It gives off a strong incense-like odor which confuses mosquitoes by masking the smell of its usual hosts. Horsemint is a fast-growing, shade-tolerant and drought-resistant plant that reaches a height and width of 2 – 3 feet. It does well in dry, sandy soil and can tolerate salty conditions, which is why it is often found in coastal and beach areas. Horsemint seeds can be sown indoors in trays for later transplanting, or sown directly into the ground in late summer in colder climate zones. Midwest and Eastern growing zones are preferred for growing horsemint.

Mature horsemint plants can be divided in spring and fall by dividing into small sections and transplanting into permanent locations.Horsemint can also be planted in pots for moving indoors in cold climate zones.

Rosemary: Another good herb to repel mosquitoes is rosemary. Rosemary is a common cooking herb that is known for its mosquito repellent properties when planted in the garden. Rosemary is an attractive plant that had a tropical origin, and it produces an essential oil that naturally deters mosquitoes. It does not do well in colder environments, but the beautiful flowers it produces
and its natural mosquito repellent properties make it a great addition to any
summer garden.

Ageratum aka "Flossflowers": Ageratum emits an odor which mosquitoes find particularly offensive. Ageratum secretes coumarin, which is widely used in commercial mosquito repellents. Ageratum is a low–lying annual ornamental plant that reaches heights of 8 – 18 inches, and is easily recognized by its blue flowers, although there are varieties with pink, white and violet blooms. This plant will thrive in full or partial sun and does not require rich soil. It is often displayed in rock gardens where low–lying plants are preferred. Although the leaves of Ageratum can be crushed to increase the emitted odor, it is not advisable to rub the crushed leaves directly on the skin.

Marigolds are hardy annual plants that have a distinctive smell which mosquitoes, and some gardeners, find particularly offensive. Marigolds contain Pyrethrum, a compound used in many insect repellents. Marigolds prefer full sunlight and reasonably fertile soil. Although marigolds can be
planted from seed, starter plants are inexpensive and readily available at most garden centers. Although an annual, marigold will often reseed itself in favorable conditions, or the gardener can easily collect seeds for future germination.
