Summer time: How to get rid of annoying insects

Summer, sunshine, insects! We’re not the only ones who like to enjoy the warm temperatures outside. So do flies, mosquitos and wasps. Mosquitos love summer rain, wasps are attracted by BBQ meat and flies will sit on anything and leave stains on your windows. Let’s have a look at a few products that will let you chill out on your balcony, in your garden or in your kitchen without insect guests.

Against wasps

The hotter the weather, the more wasps will be around. In late summer, you’ll definitely need to protect yourself against annoying wasps. Until mid-August, they live on protein, which they get from other insect or your BBQ meat. In September, when the temperatures drop, they have trouble finding enough food and can be quite aggressive.

The friendly way of dealing with insects is getting the right plants. Wasps avoid essential oils; they can’t stand mint, lemon balm and lavender. Get one of these, put it in a nice pot and it will also make for great garden decoration. If you’re having a garden BBQ, make sure not to leave food standing around before and after you’ve eaten. Use a drinking straw for sweet drinks and cover your glass if you’re not drinking.

Keep calm when there’s a wasp near you and don’t try to hit it or blow it away. This makes them feel threatened and they get aggressive.

If this still doesn’t keep them away, here are a few traps and sprays that will help.

Against flies

The warm weather supports the development of flies. They can reach their reproductive age as early as seven days after hatching. Female flies live for about a month, which gives them enough time to lay up to 500 eggs.

Attaching fly screens to your windows and doors is an ideal way of keeping flies from entering your four walls. If you want to get rid of flies on your balcony or in your garden, traps, fly screens and swatters will help.

Against mosquitos

Mosquito’s love a rainy summer. Warm and damp climate makes them feel at home. Mosquitos hatch from their eggs on the ground. After about two weeks, they’re fully developed and start hunting for blood within a radius of 10 km. They do so by following carbon dioxide, which is in our breath. Once they’re within 5 to 15 metres of us, they recognize us as a potential hosts and follow our silhouette. Within about one metre from our skin, they can feel our body heat and find a place to land.

These products will help you keep mosquitos away.

Massnahmen die verletzen oder töten sind immer vermeidbar... Schön haben sie auch alternativen aufgzeigt. Das is nun mal Natur und man kann gut im Einklang mit diesen so wichtigen Tieren leben.
