    Unhappy How to fight mosquitos?

    Lately, there's been too many mosquitos flying around sucking me dry. Do you guys have any good recipe to fight them?

    I bought the electrical Mortien insect repellent but it didn't work. Help!

    I dun like insect repellent so i apply tiger balm lightly, especially the ear area.

    either that, drink some alcoholic stuff before you sleep, e.g. beer... cos the alcohol vapour will be release by your skin. but dun drink too much =)

    1: Don't open the window. Use fan. Air-con better still.
    2: Check your house (inside and outside) to make sure there isn't a breeding place for them.
    3: Use a combination of the mosquito-repellent
    - Mortien insect repellent
    - Mosquito repellent stickers
    - Sound based repellent (emulate male mosquito, dragonflies)
    4. Wear a shirt (if u're not wearing one... )

    Me kana dengue virus last month. Stayed 9 days at hospital.
    Dun play play.....

    Here's a tip, given by my colleague (when I was working in Maldives). Put some water in a white dinner plate and add a few drops of Lemon Fresh dish detergent. I normally squeeze a little bit more. Set the dish wherever you want. The mosquitoes will flock to it and die soon after drinking the detergent/water mixture.

    It works in the Maldives & Sri Lanka, haven't try in Singapore yet though. You can give it a try and let me know if it works.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    i heard there's a plant called 'mosquito buster' ... hey, it's true, saw it at the plants nursery some time ago, the nursery owner claimed that you can pluck some of the leaves and put at corners of your home where mosquitoes like to come in from, like near the window ... i never try before, maybe you'll like to see if it works

    Breed frogs.

    Green tree frogs are cute.

    Instead of getting bitten whilst trying to sleep; listen to ribbit,ribbit,ribbit.
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    buy those UV lamps with electroshock circuits in them or those badminton racquet-like thingies with the same electroshock stuffs. seem them at work in thailand. quite effective in clearing out the room
    sigh.

    take NEEM tablets, oils or put some NEEM leaves in your room. Ward off the buzzers. With NEEM in ur system, those little buggers and insects would
    stay off u as well.
    Ya mosquito repellent plants are nice. Candles too. Spraying would only keep them away temporarily, hmm if those mosquito mats, liquid doesn't help.
    Well mosquitoes seldom bug me anyway, they'll only get trapped by my hairy leg hair and die.

    3) instead of mosquito repellent, use essential oil (tea tree)
    4) get some puffs..haha
