Spring is finally here in major parts of India, and slowly as days are getting warmer, it also means an increase in mosquitoes. In our previous blogs, we highlighted how to protect your kids from mosquitoes while they are outdoors. This blog is all about indoors and various ways to keep them safe.
There are tonnes of options available which can be used to keep the mosquitoes away. One of the most common things people use these days are mosquito coils. No matter how hard we try, some mosquitoes do sneak in our home during evening when they are at their peaking best. Including mosquito coils, there are many ways by which you can prevent the nasty mosquitoes.
The various places where I have seen the need for coils and other methods being used effectively are as follows:
1. PLAY SCHOOLS -
ost playschools have a mix of both open and closed areas. Therefore, it is required to incorporate ways which will keep bugs and mosquitoes away. A very effective way which I have observed in most playschools is using Goodknight’s mosquito coils. There are always nooks and corners, where mosquitoes could be hiding and might pose a risk to the kids. Hence, it is always a good idea to use mosquito repellent coils.
2. DOCTOR’S CLINIC-
A doctor’s clinic is always thronged with patients every now and then. That is one reason, you might have observed some plants at your doc’s clinic to ward off those mosquitoes. We don’t want to fall sick by getting a bite from the mosquito at the doctor’s clinic! Do we?
3. GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS WHICH REQUIRE WAITING IN QUEUES -
Often there are certain things which still require us to go to a government institute or office for doing certain tasks or getting something booked. Since these places often involve people going in and out of the office, it also means mosquitoes sneaking in and out. Mosquito coils are a very good option which can be used in such places and will prevent infestation of mosquitoes.
Goodknight has two very famous products which provide up to 12 hours of indoor protection from mosquitoes. These are:
The Goodknight Activ+ Low Smoke Coil ensures 12-hour protection. It comes with an active filter technology, which in turn ensures lesser smoke. The Activ+ Low Smoke Coil has 25% extra actives as compared to any ordinary Prallethrin 0.04% coils which mean better efficacy and faster repellency.
Just like the low smoke coil, the maha jumbo coil also provides a 12-hour protection. Jumbo power formula is effective against mosquitoes spreading diseases like malaria, dengue, chikungunya, and filariasis. This leaves a long lasting and soothing fragrance.
The time-tested way to drive away the mosquitoes is making sure you have the Goodknight Activ+ System switched on at all times. The double power Activ+ mode ensures mosquitoes don’t interrupt your family time.
Apart from these, you can also incorporate some DIYs at home to prevent mosquitoes from entering inside your house:
1. LAVENDER OIL
Lavender oil can be applied as such or can be used in the form of diffusers. The fragrance of lavender oil is such that it is very pleasing to a human’s nose, but at the same time extremely irritating for a mosquito. They just can’t stand its smell. So, jazz up your room quotient with lavender oil diffusers to keep away the mosquitoes.
2. BASIL PLANTS
Basil plant has a very religious purpose in many South-Asian homes. But do you know that it is also one of the most natural and safe mosquito repellent? It helps in driving mosquitoes away and has a pleasant aroma. It is also easily available these days.
As much as we think that we are safe indoors, but that is not the case most of the times. Even in the smallest of corners, mosquitoes can lay eggs and thrive. We are sure, just by following these simple tips you can be safe at your home as well.
