I think you are right, buddy. The smoke is capable of killing the mosquitos so it must be hazardous to us while we inhale it every night. However, I find an alternative to it. I use 'kelambu' or sometimes I just switch on the electrical gadget.

yes buddy, I totally agree with you. This thing is capable to kill mosquito,and I don't think we can avoid from this coil bad effect if we still use it.Human also will kill by this coil if we using it for a long time.

Yes, mosquito's coil can give some bad effect to our health. The coil is made from a chemical thing which will makes the mosquito's eyes get pain when they enter the smoked area and will lead them to avoid the area. If you noticed that our eyes also sometimes will feel pain when there is too much smoke in the room. This is how it show that it gives the effect to us the human even. For the asthma peoples, they cannot stay in such room because the smoke will cause their breathing system not working properly and the asthma will come. It is better to use the electrical type as this is based on the sound produced by the repellent which makes the mosquito avoiding our room.

i agree with you, using electrical device is safer than mosquito coil. I argue so much with my mother about this, she feel more comfortable using coil rather than electrical device. Maybe it's kinda low in price and easy to get or maybe traditional mind...whatever it is, i do agree with mosquito coil does bad effect to our health...

In my opinion it harm our health because the smoke of the mosquitoes coil we take carbon gases when we are sleeping so that is may be harmfull for us .

I have been using it for several years. But, I think there are side effects. Such as smoke from the coils itself are much chemical inside. We have stopped using it. We are using the liquid form. :) The dangerous part is the coil can cause fire!

I have heard it's bad for our lungs and eyes and can harm us in the long run.I plug in liquid mosquito repellants while sleeping because I can't tolerate the smoke from the coils.

Logically , our health will be affected after a long period in such a condition . Mosquito coil is some kind of invention by human using chemical reaction isn't it ? Please correct me if i am wrong . So , after some time , as we breath in the air that contain these smokes , this chemical will go into our lung through our lung . My opinion is , as precaution , don't use mosquito coil too often as it may affect our health and we wouldn't notice it until the day we fall sick .

I don't know but I sure hope not. I was just thinking of buying some to burn. Those mosquitoes are getting too friendly..
