hey folks, is it me or is it like super warm and swarmping with them mosquitos? I'm outta citronella candles and back to the electric bygone emitter. don't want to smoke my aircon room with the coils or it'll stain my clothes with the smell and then it comes a people repellant.
anyhow, went to the provision shop and guess what? da boss told me TODAY all the coils are snapped up. I'm staying in Simei, anyone else in this area that has a damn mosquito problem?

One solution that has worked for me is to use an aromatherapy set with lemon grass (serai) oil. That has definitely kept the mozzies away for me.

so you mean lemon flavoured one? are mosquitos afraid of lemon?

if mosquites don't kill you, your energy consumption bills will...

My method of mosquite bites prevention, keep our place clean.

mossie coil, mossie mats, mossie liquid, mossie patch, mossie UV lamp, citronella candle, nothing WORKS!
only way is to KILL KILL KILL. its the only species i have no mercy for.. cuz it gave me dengue and causes loss of sleep fo rme..

Boy what a relief! I thought that I was the only one suffering. I never had this problem before until about a month ago. Now whenever I am on the pc those mozzies will start attacking my legs.
25th February 2005, 05:33 PM
yeah, they are attracted to heat. So i'm going to buy those zappers to zap them when they start flying ard my PC!

hey! i am suffering the same Sxix here also.. but recently a colleague taught me something..not sure if it already mentioned here..but here is..
1. call the town council and complaint and get them to do the fogging (if u are like me, stay in HDB and no aircon at home)
2. get some medication oils (those lu yi oils or axe brand type), not to drink or apply on ur body, but to dip some at the 4 corners on ur bed..the insects are supposed to hate the smell..and bingo, after 1 wks of being attacks, the moment i try this, it works wonder!!!!!
let me know if this works for u..got to patent this method..ahhaha
