    Default Help! Get rid of mozzies inside!!

    Help! Every night for the last week or so I have found mozzies inside... especially in my bedroom where I keep getting woken up by them buzzing around my ears! They're so annoying and waking up with itchy bites is so irritating! To top it off my 3 month old dd sleeps in the main bedroom and has also had a few bites We have fly screens on all our doors/windows....I don't understand how they are coming inside!
    Anyone have any advice or tips on how to prevent or eliminate them indoors without resorting to wearing Aeroguard to bed!??

    We had this same problem in our last house. I bought something from woolies that you plug into the PowerPoint. I'm no sure what brand it was - Moretien maybe? But it did the trick!

    We had this exact same problem, they were driving me crazy. We bought this spray thing I think it's also mortein brand as well. It has a battery in it and when you turn it on it sprays a natural mosquito repellent at regular intervals. It really works and have had no Mosquitos since.

    Good luck getting rid of the pesky things

    I would opt for a plug in, over an automatic sprayer (we have both). The sprayer smells and makes an annoying "shoosh" noise, I always feel like I'm breathing in chemicals when it's on. The plug in doesn't smell and lasts a month if you only have it on at night (but you can get combined day/night that do flies as well). Check for buckets of water etc outside your house too, and empty them, that's where they breed.

    I can recommend the plug in thingy too, no smell or mess like those horrible coils my mum used to burn every night when we were kids.

    Just out of curiosity what is the difference between the battery operated one and the plug in one?
