1. Mosquito eggs can be laid on the water's surface, near the water, or in three different locations depending on the species. Aedes mosquitoes mainly breed in stagnant water. Aedes mosquitoes hatch from eggs; the fastest is seven days, and the longest is 26 days. It usually lasts about 12 days. We need to remove all stagnant water. The indoor flowerpot trays should be cleared of water in time, the water storage containers should be covered, and the water of household aquatic plants should be changed regularly every week in summer. It is necessary to clean up water in sinks, waste tires, tree holes and bamboo joints outdoors, discarded bottles and barrels, puddles, and dredge sewers and rainwater wells. Household garbage should be cleaned up at any time to keep the environment inside and outside the city clean and tidy.
2. Install window screens, screen doors, and mosquito nets. Close the windows and doors to prevent mosquitoes from taking advantage of them. Mosquitoes usually like people with high body temperature, sweat easily and wear black clothes. Wipe off sweat in time, take a bath as soon as possible after exercise, and maintain personal hygiene. Aedes mosquitoes like to stop on black clothes and try to avoid wearing dark clothes. Electric mosquito-repellent incense has the best mosquito-repellent effect. When using electric mosquito-repellent incense, keep the indoor air circulation, and the best time to use it is half an hour before bed.
3. When using DEET and picaridin mosquito repellent aerosols at home, they are suitable for use during the day and can be sprayed in damp and dark places such as kitchens, bathroom sinks, cabinets, table corners, stairwells, and balconies. After spraying the aerosol, you need to leave the room, close the doors and windows for half an hour to an hour, and then enter the room and open the windows for ventilation. When spraying, try not to spray directly on the surfaces of clothing, bed sheets, and furniture to prevent infants and young children from being exposed to mosquito-killing aerosols.
4. If the mosquito bite is very itchy, you can flick it with your fingers and apply floral water or essential oils evenly on the itchy area. At the same time, smear or soak the itchy area with salt water, which can soften the swelling, reduce swelling, and effectively relieve itching. Alkaline substances can also relieve itching, such as soap to scrub the itchy area. Plant mosquito-repellent grass, lilac, marigold, jasmine, mint and other plants in the home. Their pungent smell has the effect of repelling mosquitoes. When itching, you can also cut a small piece of aloe vera leaf, wash it and break it, and rub it on the red and swollen area a few times, reducing swelling and relieving itching.
