    Default Mosquito control

    How do you control and deal with the mozzies in your house and more specifically your children's rooms??

    We seem to be getting a crazy amount in this house and we have no idea how they are getting in.

    The last 2 nights one has bitten DS despite us checking the room before bed (sneaky buggers) and they are nasty on his sensitive skin.

    We headed to bunnings this morning and got the raid plug in mozzie repellant for his bedroom and some citronella candles to burn near the back door when we are in and out of an evening.

    Is there something better out there that you're using??

    I use the raid plug ins - the ones that are gel. I'm a mozzie magnet and they work for me - I just turn them on about 1hr before bed then turn it off in the morning.

    I use the raid plug ins. I leave them on day and night to stop mozzies coming in during the day

    Could you give some more info on this please... My DD reacts terribly to mozzies/midgies and I normally use the moo goo spray but need something for around the home.

    No, you aren't hijacking at all! I'm sure I'm not the only one looking for solutions!

    Default Mosquito control

    It's an essential oil. Lemongrass essential oil also works well. You can dilute it in a roller bottle or have in a diffuser. I diffuse to keep them out of the bedroom. When playing outside I roll it on in roller bottle. You can use terrashield on bites itself to help them go down. Terrashield is an essential oil blend by doTERRA.

    We use an external bug zapper inside the house. Has the added bonus of being the hallway night light.

    Been using them for years with little problems except for replacing the globes every 1-2yrs
