Mosquitos love warm, damp conditions, so with the UK’s variable weather during the summer months, the annoying bug can be prevalent from warm spring showers in April through to damp, but mild conditions in October. For anyone getting bitten, there are a few ways to repel mosquitos without stinking the house out with overpowering chemical repellents. 

Generally speaking, mosquitos come out to feed around sunrise, sunset, and nighttime. 

They’re rarely active during the middle of the day when the sun is out since direct sunlight and high midday temperatures can quickly dehydrate them. 

There are a variety of factors as to why you might attract mosquitos; high contrast colours are enticing to the bugs, as well as body heat. 

But the greatest attraction for mosquitos is odour; a female mosquito can smell body odour and exhaled carbon dioxide from up to 170 feet away.

Add to a spray bottle, shake and use. 

You can also use beauty products with mint fragrance – shampoo and conditioner, body washes.
