Use a mosquito killer card in your home and send mosquitoes packing!
Mosquitoes are, quite seriously, one of the lousiest pests in the world. They have an unobtrusive bite, in that you don’t even feel them drawing on your blood – you only realise you’ve been bitten when a bump shows itself at the site! They bite at all times of the day or night, they lurk in corners of the house and they have the potential to spread diseases like malaria and dengue.
What’s more, mosquito bites can disrupt your sleep. Little children, especially, are greatly disturbed by the mosquito menace, and they tend to fall ill faster with infectious bites too. You try many tricks to get mosquitoes out of the house – you close the windows and try to smoke them out, you light neem incense sticks to repel them (but the odour drives you nearly insane instead!) and you even switch on the fans at full speed so that the mosquitoes are ‘blown away’. Nothing works!
So now you mull over using aerosol sprays to get rid of the mosquitoes. But you also worry – your children are too young and you don’t want them to be exposed to the sprays, even though they are totally safe. We recommend using a mosquito killer card – it is safe, completely effective and it takes just three minutes to get the mosquitoes zapped and dead. It is also available in a neem variant for herbal mosquito-killing action.
How the mosquito killer card works
Start by closing the doors and windows of the space you are in.
Place the mosquito killer card on a plate. Fold the paper in half before you place it.
Now light one end of the paper. Once the flame lights up, the paper will start to burn. Blow out the flame at once, making sure that the paper continues to smoulder.
Close the door and leave the room for at least 10 minutes.
When you return, the mosquitoes in the room will have been immobilised. They die soon after. The space is now safe for use.
Additional measures to remove mosquitoes
The best way to prevent a mosquito menace in the house is to ensure that they do not have access to any breeding spots. Mosquitoes lay eggs in fresh water or rainwater that has been standing for a long time. If you are in the habit of storing extra water in buckets, discontinue this practice for a few days till you are sure that the mosquito problem has reduced in intensity.
While the mosquito killer card is quite effective, you can also ensure a drastic reduction in mosquito numbers by spraying mosquito spray around the house. Or if you are not comfortable using aerosol sprays, you can use an electrical vaporiser that emits mosquito-killing vapour into the air to stop mosquitoes in their tracks.
