Mosquitoes 20 Home Remedies

Home Remedies



Aside from many of the already mentioned methods of dealing with ‘skeeters’ and the itchy bites such can impart…to wage battle against them, use of those battery powered bug zappers that look like a small tennis racket have proven useful, (easier to dispatch, and less bloody than swatting); along with purposely leaving buckets of water around, which are diligently checked every few days, and poured out on the ground at the first sight of skeeter larvae. (So that, what would in an unmonitored state become a suitable ‘breeding pool’ becomes a ‘dead end’ instead.

For itchy bites:

A thin paste made by dissolving an aspirin in a small amount of hydrogen peroxide has given good results.

Using water w/ aspirin may also work…if no peroxide available.


For mosquito bites I use amonia. Just apply some to a cotton ball or A-tip and dab where you were bit. The amonia stops the itching, takes away the swelling and redness instantaneously.


My Personal home remedies for mosquito repellent is.. Half vanilla extract and half H2O in a spritz bottle, If the mosquito’s are bad and my vanilla extract… I’ve learned it from my mother and its been past down since then..


skin so soft by avon,mix one part avon to same will keep away chiggers & mosquitoes away.


Found a recent remedy for mosquito bite itch and swelling. A friend gave me Pepti Rub and it worked like wonders.


To stop from getting bitten in the first place use Skin So Soft fromm Avon.


I had a science teacher in high school tell me that the best and cheapest remedy for mosquito bits is our own saliva (spit from your own mouth). The enzymes in our saliva kills the toxins from the mosquito bite. I know this sounds weird and nasty but you would not believe how well it works. After being bitten just dab a little spit on the red spot of the bite and do not scratch. Every time you feel the need to scratch just dab a little spit. Within a few minutes the bump and itching will be gone. I’m 35 now and I have using this remedy since high school. I promise it works and it is cheaper than anything else, it’s free because it comes from our own mouth. It can’t get any better than that!


aloe with lidocaine in it! banana boat sells it, it’s blue. just put a little bit on the one end of a q-tip put it on the bite and then rub it in with the other side of the q-tip! the lidocaine numbs the bite so you dont feel the itching! this is amazing!


When I was a kid, we camped a lot and my mother would use a bit of meat tenderizer with a few drops of water to make a paste to put on my mosquito bites! I don’t know how but it worked…took a few minutes but it worked non the less!


Place camphor tablets in a cup of water and keep in ur room, mosquitoes will keep away !!


I have 10 dryer sheets spread up and down and all around my 8×8′ deck. It has kept away several kinds of bugs, especially spiders, but has been completely ineffective against mosquitoes. I am going to try the mouthwash next. Will let you all know the outcome!!!


I find that smoking a big, fat bowl helps me take my mind off the itching. No joke. Try it.


You won’t believe this! Take a dryer sheet(New) and rub on your body. Mosquitoes won’t even come near you. You can also take the dryer sheet and tuck in your belt or tie it on your wrist and you’ll have the same effect. I tried this in hopes that it would also prevent chigger bites. For the most part, it worked. I did get a few bites but it may have been where I missed a spot.


To keep mosquitoes away spray listerine everywhere. Honestly, after a few minutes, the mosquitoes will stay away.


for mosquito bites: hot water – as hot as you can take it, for as long as you can stand it, and as soon after the bite as possible. if you scratch it first though all bets are off. ive lived in florida for 29 long summers and when my friend told me about this he literally changed my life.


to stop the itching try witch hazel (its made for insect bites too). That usually works, but you can also try hydrocortisone or antiprurtic (anti-itch cream) it is available at rite aid.


Clear nail enamel… As soon as you get bitten apply it over the bite… The itch will stop right away… It works as a seal of some source.


mosquitos hate banana trees plant them around the area where you hang out or sit outside. they will not come, also works for fleas.


mix water with baking soda apply on mosquitoe bite


Keep Mosquitoes away…..
Put Amber colored mouth wash in a spray bottle(generic brand will do)
