How to Repel Mosquitoes on Holiday

How to Repel Mosquitoes on Holiday

When you booked your holiday abroad, you were dreaming of sun, beaches, bars and fun. No one warned you about the mosquitoes. In the small hours of the night, their relentless buzzing keeps you awake. Frustrated, you turn on the light, grab the fly swatter, and embark on a mission to eradicate the miniature tormentors. Is there a way to rid your hotel room of these bloodthirsty intruders once and for all? Discover the secrets to defeating mosquitoes with our handy tips!

Why do they choose you over your partner? Science can't answer that yet, but it's known that mosquitoes are attracted to body odour, heat, and light. Showering with a strongly scented soap or using a perfume spray may offer some protection in the short term but not all night. Citronella candles or diffusers are ineffective against these little nuisances. So what works to deter mosquitoes while you sleep? This is how you chase away mosquitoes...

Tip 1: Repel mosquitoes with plants. Mosquitoes don’t like the smell of lavender, lemon, rosemary, mint, or catnip. The advantage of lavender is that not only does it help repel mosquitoes, but it also ensures that you sleep better.

Tip 2: Choose a room with window and door screens to keep mosquitoes out while maintaining ventilation.

Tip 3: Use a mosquito net that covers your bed completely, including your feet, with small holes to prevent mosquito entry.

Tip 4: There are anecdotal reports from Thailand and other Asian countries that mosquitoes don't like the smell of menthol, so it may help to use a body dusting powder with a strong menthol content before you sleep. Snake Brand Prickly Heat Cooling Powder uses a formula containing menthol and is easy to apply to your skin. It comes in a dry powder form, so won't leave your skin feeling sticky as it would with insect repellent creams or lotions. Best of all, its fragrance lasts for hours!

Snake Brand body powder is available in original minty Classic fragrance and Relaxing Lavender fragrance.
