How To Deal With Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are insects we all want to avoid and not deal with.  However, there are going to be situations where you have no choice but to deal with them because you have entered their environment.  If you go camping, live near water or in areas that have hot sticky nights, the odds are that you have encountered and dealt with mosquitoes.  If you have, then you know how valuable a mosquito control company in Belleville can be.

Candles and fire

The first thing and possibly the easiest is to use candles and some type of fire.  Now, of course if you are going to be using any type of flame, you want to make sure that you are doing it correctly and safely.  If not, then you could cause a lot of damage.

Candles and fire create smoke that mosquitoes don’t like.  When you have these items lit, they throw smoke and chemicals into the air that creates a barrier between you and them.  This is possibly the most effective if you don’t want to use an exterminator route.

Stay inside

The next thing you can do is just stay inside or create a barrier between you and the mosquitoes.  If you have a porch you can create a screened in area that will prevent the mosquitoes from entering.  These porches will allow you to experience the nice cool air of the night while avoiding these insects.


Finally, if you want to get rid of the problem all together, you will want to hire a professional company to come in and kill them.  They will typically spray a poison that will either kill them directly, their eggs or the environment so they leave.  When using poisons make sure that they are ecologically friendly.  This means, that they don’t run off into the water or soil and if they do, their primary components burn off ensuing if what was left over is ingested will be safe.
