No matter how you look at it, and no matter what these manufacturers put on the label, the safest and best insect killers are ones that are made from natural ingredients. Nature has its own way of balancing itself. When there are pests, there are also natural pesticides that can be found in nature. The key however is finding out about them, and utilizing their natural potential for the benefit of your health and home.

Natural Mosquito Repellent

Some of the best mosquito repellents that are naturally found in the environment can be extracted from plants. Plants are sometimes the primary food source of certain insects. And because nature afforded plants a way to combat their natural prey, they are sometimes equipped with substances that act as natural repellents.

Your local botanical garden or shop will most likely be a great start for information about plants that act as natural mosquito repellents. Maybe they would be more than happy to even sell you the plants themselves. Books (and especially the internet) are also great sources of information regarding processes on how you can effectively extract essential oils from these plants to use as mosquito repellents.

The Benefits of Homemade Ingredients

Mosquito repellents can be made out of common household ingredients –things you probably already have lying around in your kitchen. Others however recommend using common plants you might find around the garden. But whichever recipe you use, using ingredients you know is safer than relying on a manufacturer’s labels on commercially made repellents.

Why Are Mosquito Repellents Necessary?

Mosquitoes are annoying, irritating, and carry various diseases with their bite. And because we care for our health and our family’s, it is only right to protect our bodies from mosquito bites. A bite from a mosquito puts you at risk at getting the West Nile Virus, or even Malaria. While these diseases have been totally eliminated in some countries, still the risk of contracting them from mosquitoes is still present.

How Does Mosquito Repellent Works

Mosquitoes are believed to be attracted to certain scents. Whether it is the scent of the skin, or the smell of the gasses we emit through breathing. Some even say that mosquitoes are attracted to the warm of the human body. But whichever the reason, mosquito repellents work not by repelling the mosquito. Rather, mosquito repellents masks us from mosquitoes. Rather than being attracted to us, they are unable to detect our bodies.
