    Default Solutions to keep Mosquitos at bay

    Anyone?

    I've been under attack for the past 4 days!

    Bought the Baygon Electric Mat but i don't like the smell. No coil for me as I've got sinus and can't take the smell.

    Spraying is no use because they come back.

    Do the electronic sound-emitting devices work? How about UV lights?
    I need a permenant solution as I can barely get a good night rest.

    The sound emitting device worked - for 1 type of mosquitos only.

    I had being using it and able to keep Mosquitos at bay. But if another species come, time to take out the mosquito repellant.

    IMHO, the UV light for flies, not for mosquito (or it might attract even more into your home!)

    There's a product called Antimos. It comes in the form of small cans that you can place around in different corners of your house. The fragrance it emits drives the mosquito away. So far it seems to be working...

    Mosquito repellant is useless to those super fierce mosquitos.
    For normal ones is ok, so far I think I'm used to the smell, doesn't irritate me anymore.

    Coil is still ok, but doesnt work everytime.
