How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes Inside Your Florida Home
When the mosquitoes are too much outdoors, you and your family run for cover inside the home. But, just as you start to relax, you hear that familiar, haunting buzz and you know that a mosquito (or several) has followed you inside. Suddenly your sanctuary no longer feels safe and you’re on high alert again. Here are a few tips that will help you get rid of mosquitoes inside your Florida home and how to keep them from getting in, to begin with.
How to Deal With a Few Mosquitoes Indoors
The majority of Florida’s mosquito population spends all its time outdoors, but they aren’t opposed to following a potential meal inside. Luckily, an indoor mosquito infestation is usually small and fairly easy to manage if you just follow a few simple steps:
- Seal up any openings that mosquitoes can use to enter your home. Remember, they’re tiny so you have to be careful of any potential entry. Make sure your window screens are in place and that you’ve got a tight seal around doors and other openings to make it harder for mosquitoes to enter.
- Light a lavender or citronella candle. Mosquitoes are repelled by strong scents like lavender, so burning a candle can help keep them away. Be very careful, however, to only use a candle under strict supervision and be mindful of children and pets.
- Use essential oils to repel mosquitoes. Much like the lavender candle mentioned above, essential oils such as Lemon Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Catnip, and Tea Tree are commonly used to repel fleas. Do keep in mind that essential oils are safer than chemicals but may require more applications to work.
- Turn on an oscillating fan. Ever notice that on a breezy night there are fewer mosquitoes buzzing around? Since they’re so tiny, a breeze blows them off course and makes it difficult for them to get to you. Apply the same principle inside by running an oscillating fan in the room.
How to Make Your Home Repel Mosquitoes
