Two Systems To Rid Your Home Of That Rouge Mosquito

October 4, 2017

Since Hurricane Irma the mosquito population has blossomed, with many communities adding extra spraying routes to kill those blood-sucking nuisances.  But as you know living in Florida, every once in a while a rouge mosquito find its way inside your home and trying to eliminate it can be a frustrating task.  So we found two systems to try that have a pretty good success rate. System #1, grab a flashlight and turn off all the lights if they’re not already off except for a table lamp or phone/tablet as the only light source (keep your flashlight off for now).  Now we play the waiting game as you hear it buzzing around.  After a few minutes, the mosquito will likely make its way toward the light source and land on the wall nearby.  Now turn on your flashlight and hold it flat against the wall with the beam of light shining along the wall. Eventually, the light will hit the mosquito and create a large shadow so you can find it and take care of it.  System #2 involves your bed, light-colored sheets and your tablet.  Lay on your back with your body under the sheets.  Adjust your tablet to the bright screen settings and place it on your chest.  Crook your knees up to where the light from the tablet can be seen on the sheets on top of your knees. Now take big deep breaths and exhale in the direction of the tablet on your chest. The carbon dioxide from your breath, in addition to the light, will draw the mosquito in.  here you play the waiting game too but eventually the mosquito will make its way to you, and might even land right on the tablet. At that point, you'll know what to do!
