Warm Weather = Mosquito Season

Posted By on August 2, 2023

What can you do?

Good weather and warm summer nights brings only one downside: the pests. Nothing can ruin a balcony like the nagging buzz of mosquitoes.

Standing/stagnant water can be a large contribution to this issue. A large cause of mosquitoes forming around patios and balconies is potted plants.

Here are some ideas to help keep mosquitoes off your balcony:

1.    Eliminate standing water around your balcony.

2.    Remove all standing water in your potted plants and catch basins.

3.    Move potted plants indoors.

4.    Place herbs and scented oils around your balcony.

5.    Scatter coffee grounds in your plants.

6.    Grow insect-repellent plants.

Mosquito Repellent Products:

1. Citronella Candle Set

These chic candles are tougher than they look. They have a 50-hour burning time, plenty to protect your outdoors.

2. Mosquito Dunks

While mosquito dunks don’t repel mosquitoes, they can prevent them from invading your balcony to begin with. Place them in standing water like catch basins (aka the insect’s favorite hangouts) to kill larvae for at least 30 days.

3. OFF! Clip-On Mosquito Repellent

The battery-operated fan emits mosquito repellant, providing up to 12 hours of protection. It’ll even keep you cool on those sticky summer nights.

4. Badger Anti-Bug Balm

Badger’s all-natural balm protects skin from annoying pests, thanks to its blend of organic citronella, cedar, and lemon grass essential oils. It’s completely free of DEET and other toxic ingredients, making it safe for the little ones to use.

5. Burt’s Bees Herbal Insect Repellant

No outdoor bash would be complete without a trusty bug spray. We like Burt’s Bee herbal version, which boasts rosemary, lemongrass and citronella oils and a light, refreshing scent.

6. Off! Mosquito Lamp

Perfect for any outdoor gathering, this candle and diffuser combo will keep your party mosquito-free for up to six hours. Simply light the candle to release the repellant from the diffuser.

7. Cutter All Family Mosquito Wipes

Offer your guest bug wipes to ward off airborne attackers (trust us, they’ll appreciate it). These are gentle on the skin and don’t include any stinky chemicals.
