How to prevent mosquito bites

1. Screens and bed nets should be installed in summer. No matter repellent water or fumigating vinegar, it is not as safe and reliable as physical mosquito control.

2. You can put some orange peel, star anise, anise, etc. in the room to drive away mosquitoes, because mosquitoes don't like the special smell of these things.

3. In the house, those places that are easy to accumulate water, such as pots and pans, floor drains, sewers, flowerpots, etc., should be cleaned in time, and those with lids should be covered, and those who can change water should change water frequently.

4. If the use of screens and nets will still bring in some mosquitoes, you can use some mosquito repellent products, such as mosquito repellent incense and liquid.

5. It's best to wear light colored clothes when going out in summer. Mosquitoes like to wear dark clothes. Because mosquitoes generally live in the dark environment, dark clothes are just in line with their visual habits. Moreover, dark clothes absorb more heat in summer, which will raise people's temperature and attract mosquitoes easily.

6, after sports sweat, wash immediately, do not use perfume, moisturizing lotion and other cosmetics, because mosquitoes love high temperature, sweating easily.
