How to drive away mosquitoes

I am sure most of us have been stung by mosquitoes before. The itchiness will only go away after quite some time. Here are a few tips to drive mosquitoes away.

1 As mosquitoes do not like the smell of garlic, you can place garlic around your plants or places where you do not want mosquitoes to gather.

2 Dissove a few tablets of Vitamin C and Vitamin B2 into water. Then coat your skin with a thin layer of this solution. The mosquitoes will not dare to go near you because of its smell. If you have sensitive skin, don't try this.

3 Hang orange-coloured curtain at your windows. Mosquitoes do not like this colour and will not go near the room. Alternatively you can cover your table lamp with orange-coloured plastic paper to produce orange light to drive away mosquitoes.

So much for ways to drive away mosquitoes.
