My Family Health Blog : Sun, Mar 15, 2009 – Mosquitos are a terrible nuisance. They bite us, cause us to itch, suck our blood and spread disease. Parasites are real, for those who think parasites are not a problem. I live in a tropical country so I’m telling you they are real. There are many ways to combat mosquitoes, and just like any TV zombie, we used to use those products advertised on television, toxic chemicals that poisoned the mosquitoes as well as the human beings.
When we developed our organic thinking, and read about the experiences of others and the dangers of insecticides poisoning us, especially our children, we had to change our ways.
We recently bought a mosquito trap that sucks in mosquitos. There is a light that attracts the mosquitoes, they come near, they are sucked in the chamber and die a dehydrating death.
I think altogether they work pretty well, especially when I kept the mosquito trap on 24 hours a day. You do spend a little on electricity, but at least we aren’t poisoning ourselves and our kids.
