All you need to keep those pesky bugs out of your way is a little peppermint oil. Mosquitoes, flies and all other insects don’t like the strong peppermint smell. Place a container of peppermint oil by the window and you will notice that you’ll no longer suffer from mosquitoes. You can also mix some peppermint oil with water and spray it around the house. This also allows you to quickly get rid of all other insects in the house.

2. Garlic

Mosquitoes don’t like garlic at all! That’s why you should prepare your dishes with a lot of garlic. Eating garlic releases oils through the pores of your skin and believe us, mosquitoes absolutely hate it! This simple trick makes it super easy to keep them at bay!

3. Lemon Eucalyptus Oil

We often use anti-insect spray to protect ourselves from mosquito bites. However, anti-insect sprays can be dangerous to your health because it uses a chemical that enters your bloodstream. Fortunately, lemon eucalyptus oil is a purely natural remedy that you can use as often as you want. It works even better and keeps mosquitoes away for up to 8 hours!
