Are you worried about illnesses that are carried by insects? With the influx of West Nile Virus, people are starting to be a lot more cautious about mosquitoes and the possibility of illness.
One of the best ways to feel a little better about being outside is with the use of insect repellents. Unlike insect repellents, which actually kill the insects, repellents keep insects away. The insect repellant confuses the insect’s natural senses to look for a new location.
Insect repellents are available in products that are applied to the skin, or you can find repellants to use around your home. Some items, such as citronella candles or coils, will keep mosquitoes away from your patio and outdoor spaces. There are other essential oils that will repel a variety of insects and are useful when burnt as candles or added to diffusers around the home.
Lotions or sprays that are applied to the skin often contain chemicals such as DEET or Picardin. These chemicals disguise the skin odor of the wearer, making them unappealing to mosquitoes.
