How to get rid of mosquitos?

  • why don't you try citronella oil. its natural and it's proven to drve away mosquitos. merong mga citronella candles available but if you can get your hands on citronella oil, the better for you. mix it with some water then put it in an aroma therapy oil burner. you can also mix a few drops of citronella oil with virgin coconut oil. you now have an mosquito repellant you can apply on your skin. pangsubstitute sa off lotion.
  • thanks thanks! citronella candles it is! =D

    korei, have you tried it?

    hindi pa. di pa kasi nakabili ng yeast esmi ko. pero plan ko talaga subukan. pwede karin magtanim ng mga plants na insect repellant*okay*

    Dude you better clean out areas where water collect, or otherwise, put used cooking oil on those recurrent ones. That's the only way to do it in the long run.
  • does citronella really work?
    where can we buy the oil?

    i heard about trees that can also help repel mosquitos...not sure about the spelling, it's called "nimph"? some also say eucalyptus trees
  • the suggestions were good but the best solution is to destroy their breeding places. Stagnant water, dark places, storage room, pusali, basurahan, gardens (yes, gardens) etc.

    Also, your effort will be futile if di mo ka-cooperate ang kapitbahay sa effort.

    citronella really works! on time i left my sliding door open the whole night, no screen doors. meron lang akong nilagay na essential oil burner na may citronella sa may sliding door. no mosquitos not even ipis hehehehe.

    neem is okay but planting neem trees are not enough. you actually have to process the oil kasi yung oil ang effective vs. mosquitoes

    pero tama si joma, yung breeding places nila kelangang alisin. yung mga usual hiding places nila kelangang linisin. at dapat talaga community effort.
  • Hmm.. matry nga weapons of mass destruction.
  • the citronella wax from SM doesn't work at all . i bought 3 with the purpose of using them one at a time. meron pa din mosquitoes. then i ended up opening all 3 . meron pa din lamok. useless. yung baygon na liquid na kinakabit sa sockets are far more effective
  • @buzzkill, perhaps you can share with us kung anong klaseng citronella yung ginamit mo? at saan mabibili ito? TIA

    ganun ba, hirap pala gumawa ng homemade citronella oil, for now content muna ko mag tanim ng citronella sa garden and linis ng mabuti sa mga possible areas na pwede magkaroon ng stagnant water:)
