Mosquito Killer

Mosquitoes lay eggs in stagnant water and hatch within 24 to 30 hours. The most common mosquitoes we find in our homes, workplaces and gardens are the striped mosquito and the brown house mosquito. Female mosquitoes have a long, piercing mouthpiece, which they use to pierce a hosts skin to consume their blood.

We all know, that mozzies are noisy (zzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!), their bites are painful and they can affect the quality of our sleep. The bites are itchy which is due their saliva which contains proteins that prevent blood from clotting and causes a mild immune response in many people.

Mosquito bites arent just annoying and could lead to something much worse if you are in certain areas of the world 

How to protect your home from mosquitoes

  1. Remove any stagnant water that may be 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 – 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 mosquitoes to lay their eggs.

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

  5. Establish an ongoing protection. Use an insect killer, that eliminates insects: 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 around 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. Your Ecomist Automatic Dispenser will target mosquitoes in mid-air and prevent mozzies from entering. The Ecomist Natural Insect Killer uses natural pyrethrins derived from the Chrysanthemum Daisy, sourced from Tasmania and East Africa and manufactured in New Zealand. 

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