Mozzies are annoyingly common in NZ, particularly in the summer months. There are a few things you can do around your home or business to prevent these pesky 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.
No standing water - Do not leave standing water (in watering cans for example) as this gives mosquitoes a good place to breed.
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.
