Offended about mosquitos? Do you need to eliminate them? Comply with These Inexpensive Well being Information Steps
New Delhi: A 0.125 to 0.75 inch mosquito can ruin your night and you could wake up from home late for your morning work. The COVID-19 has already confined everyone to their homes, and in such a scenario, all you can do is look for ways to get rid of mosquitos.
A mosquito, with an average lifespan of 2 weeks to 6 months, needs water to reproduce, and mosquito population control usually involves removing standing water sources. There are also people who spray insecticides to kill adult mosquitoes.
However, according to National Geographic, global efforts to stop the spread of mosquitoes have had little impact, and many scientists believe that global warming is likely to increase their numbers and reach.
However, you can still take the inexpensive steps listed below and try to remove the carriers or vectors known to be responsible for some of the deadliest diseases known to man:
1. Garlic: Garlic is known to keep mosquitos away, largely due to its smell. To use this technique, you need to grind some garlic pods, one of the tiny vesicles that can be split off the axis of a larger garlic bulb, and then boil the pods in water. You can then sprinkle it on the area where you see mosquitos.
2. Indian lilac (to take): You can also use neem to get rid of mosquitoes. You need to mix equal proportions of neem oil and coconut oil first, and then apply them to your skin. Neem leaves are known to leave a smell on the skin that keeps mosquitos away.
3. Kapur: Kapur is known to keep mosquitos away, because whenever you burn it along with bay leaves, the smell and smoke will not let mosquitoes stay in this place.
There are reportedly more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes, but the three members are primarily responsible for the spread of human disease, and of these three species, the Anopheles mosquitoes are the only species known to transmit malaria.
Recently the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare had also said that malaria or dengue fever can coexist with other infections. Confirmation of these infections therefore does not rule out that the patient does not suffer from COVID-19.
Similarly, if a fever is diagnosed as COVID-19, a high suspicion index for malaria and dengue must be present, especially during rainy and post-rainy seasons in areas where these diseases are endemic.
