Get mosquitoes away from the garden: more effective remedies
In Italy there are several species of mosquitoes, some dangerous both for humans and pets. Their bites can cause swelling, redness and intense itching, but in the most serious cases they cause dangerous diseases, such as Yellow Fever or filariasis, a disease that can become lethal for dogs and cats.
How to fight them? The first step is to make the garden an inhospitable place for mosquitoes. These insects tend to lay their eggs in warm and humid spaces. Stagnant water sources, such as saucers, are the ideal habitat in which to reproduce. For this reason, it is essential to empty any bowls or other containers daily, in addition to choosing specific plants, such as lemongrass or geranium, which in addition to decorating also manage to keep away mosquitoes.
Often choosing these repellents is not enough: a mosquito needs only a few millimeters of water to proliferate and it is not always possible to keep a garden completely dry. Many people rely on mosquito lotions to be sprinkled on the body: these are only a temporary remedy and do not eliminate the problem at the root. Mosquitoes will continue to live undisturbed, still managing to sting that patch of skin that has not been properly sprinkled.
A possible solution could be the famous zampirone composed of compressed pyrethrum powders that, burning slowly, produce a smoke capable of driving away the insects. However, it is precisely those clouds of smoke that create an additional problem: the smoke is breathed, creates discomfort, invades the environment. Not to mention that all these products, in the long run, are translated into important expenses, but unable to solve the problem definitively.
Pyrethrum and its derivatives represent an excellent solution to fight mosquitoes. Pyrethrum is obtained from a sort of large daisy, called Tanacetum cinerariifoliume, pyrethroids have a similar synthetic molecule. They can be used in a non-invasive and environmentally friendly and yet effective against mosquitoes. There is a technology that allows it. Forget about mosquitoes, stoves and the like so, there are alternatives to use these insecticides effectively and in respect of health and the environment.
