Protecting businesses and homes in South Africa from Pests for 50 Years
Mosquitoes are synonymous with the summer season, but that doesn’t mean we like it! There are a few things you can do around your home or business to prevent these biting pests.
Keep windows closed - After dark, keep windows and doors closed or block out the light with curtains.
Insect screens - Fit fly screens to windows.
Clear up - Clear up dead mosquitoes, as they provide a tasty snack for other pests such as carpet beetles.
Cover water - Cover water butts with well fitted lids to prevent mosquito larvae in the water.
Eliminate standing water - Do not leave standing water (in watering cans for example) as this gives mosquitoes a good place to breed.
Encourage natural predators - If you have a garden pond, think about getting some goldfish as they will eat mosquito larvae.
Natural repellents - Try natural repellents such as citronella, neem oil, peppermint oil, lemon eucalyptus oil, witch hazel, garlic, lavender and vanilla extract.
