The coils and mosquitoe repellents are very good but i am afraid of its smell may be its poison, and the room is filled with a peculiar odour, now I have switched to a new electronic mosquitoe destroyer it really works, What do you use?

i don't use anything ..i just go to sleep with the fan turn on at full speed. i think it is enough to keep the mosquitoes away from me and i make sure that i take a bath be4 going to bed coz i think mosquitoes love the sweat scene of our body.

well for me, i don't need any mosquito coil or any mosquito repellent because there are no mosquitoes in the place where i live.there are no mosquitoes in my house so i don't use any thing for keeping mosquitoes away. but still i know many techniques which are good and which do work.one of the best tricks that i liked is using a mosquitoes net, it is quit time taking to install it every night, but it is really a good idea.

We use mosquito repellents too like Off! Lotion. It's really effective and I can't help but smile whenever I see mosquitoes attempt to get near me and suddenly, they would just back off and stay away. We also use mosquito net. It's really effective too because mosquitoes can't get inside our mosquito nets at all times. It's the most effective mosquito repellent for me because it's sure to guide you from sickness like Dengue.

Hello, dhawanbm! Well, we must protect ourselves from mosquitoes because it will bring diseases but I haven't used those repellants, I just prefer to use a mosquito net in sleeping. It is the cheapest way of avoiding mosquitoes. It has no smoke and it does not consume electricity so I can save money. Happy mylotting and have a nice day!

Hello dhawanabm!!! Well in my country Nepal, this is the time we get the maximum mosquitoes in our home. We don't see them in other seasons and we are lucky for that. I don't like to use mosquito coils and mosquito repellants. Their smell cause headache to me, I can't resist. I think more than mosquito, it will faint me lol... But surely I have to keep the mosquitoes away before I sleep. I use mosquito net. And before sleeping I make sure that there is no mosquito inside the net. I shake the mosquito net for a while and if there are mosquitoes, they start flying and we can detect them. But I don't kill them, because I am always against killing any thing. I let them out from the net. That's all.... Good luck mylotting...

Hello,Dhawan! My city is famous for mosquitoes and we use the coils in rooms during the night to get rid of the mosquitoes.That is only the option with us to sleep peacefully.The Municipal authorities doing nothing to clear the garbage and maintain the drains properly for which their number is increasing day by day.thanx.

i have my window screened all over the house, including screen door, so mosquitoes can't be found inside the house, but when i feel that mosquitoes are coming in, i just spray inside the house, and make sure that no one is inside because the smell is not good for the health. then after spraying, the house is mosquito free.

Incense sticks work as an insect repellant! and they smell really nice too, and it helps you to be more relaxed so you sleep better. but of course, since you already have that electronic mosquito killer, you could use them together, like light up about 3 sticks on one side of your room, preferably near a fan, and let it relax you. yeah baby...

Yes,mosquitioes create a very big problem. My skin is very sensitive and the mosquito bites wil leave prominent marks on my skin. We have an electronic device whick keeps mosquitoes away. We also make sure to clost all the windows and doors of house properly so that no mosquito will get into the house.
