Mosquito Killer

The most common biting mosquitos we find in our homes, workplaces and gardens are the striped mosquito and the brown house mosquito. Female mosquitoes have a long, piercing mouthpiece, with which they pierce a hosts skin to consume their blood. We all know, that mozzies are noisy (zzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!) and their bites are painfil they can affect the quality of our sleep. Moreover, the bites are itching  because of mozzies' saliva, that contains proteins that prevent blood from clotting and activate a mild immune response in many people.

But what you possible dont know, is that these non-native mosquitos lay eggs in stagnant water and hatch within 2430 hours. Mosquitoes are breeding at a record rate due to the favorable conditions and combating these flying pests is vital to keeping your property hygienic and comfortable.

Mosquito bites are often just itchy and uncomfortable, but they arent just annoying and could lead to something much worse. Fortunatly chances of being infected with a disease through a mosquito bite are very small, unless you are in the epicentre of active epidemia. 

How to protect your home from mosquitoes. Checklist for the home or work premise:

  1. Remove any stagnant water that may be laying around the property; mosquitoes love to breed and lay eggs around water. Empty pots and trays, garden water features, buckets, pans, sandpits, boats.

  2. Clean out gutters annually – birds can drop grasses in the drains. Leaves and other debris can build up and become the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. 

  3. Trim large trees close to buildings – some trees with big leaves can hold enough water for mosquitos to lay their eggs.

  4. Spraying a barrier spray such as Ecomist Sniper in cracks and crevices is another way to eliminate mosquitoes while they are still at the egg and larvae stage.

  5. Establish an ongoing protection. Use an insect killer, that eliminates insects. And that means: flushes insects out of their hiding places, repels and kills them. The insect killer should provide the 24 hours protection and be safe to use arond people, food and pets. Ecomist developed the original  automatic insect control concept that has been proven time and again in the most demanding environments. It eliminates flying and crawling insects in indoor and semi-enclosed outdoor areas. 24 hour protection without you needing to do a thing: just set and forget. Your Ecomist Automatic Dispenser will target mosquitos in mid-air and prevent mozzies from entering indoors. The Ecomist Natural Insect Killer uses natural pyrethrins derived from the Chrysanthemum Daisy, sourced from Tasmania and East Africa and manufactured in New Zealand, so it's safe to use around people, pets and food. 

  6. Use a personal bug repellent with Deet to prevent bites. Bug Bullet with tropical strength formula will keep you protected when you’re out and about.
