What should be used as a mosquito repellent?


#1

Should we use all-out or mortein available in markets as mosquito repellent?

Do they kill mosquitos? If they can’t be used, then what can be used instead of it?


#2

As per many of the advertisements shown in the television, mosquitoes do die if mortein or just mosquito repellent are used. I searched on the internet and found this -

Its job is to repel mosquitoes, but in higher concentrations of its smoke, it paralyses the mosquito and ultimately kills it. Mosquito coils were typically made from a dried paste of pyrethrum powder but now a days, they’re made of synthetically produced Pyrethrin.

We being jain should not take any risk in terms of violence. So I think it’s better to not use any such repellent.
The best thing to use is mosquito net (saying it by my personal experience).

Cover yourself from a blanket.
Secondly you can close all your windows by 6:00 in evening and then open them at 10:00 at night because this is the time when most mosquitoes find their temporary stay(as I have observed)


#4

I have read somewhere instead of mortin or such equipment you can use “kapoor” in your home. Its smell makes mosquitoes away.


#5

Make fan fast is ultimately make “jeevhinsha”

Yes, it is jeev hinsa but if on a regular day you freely use fan at full speed then I don’t think there is any difference. But if you do not use Fan at high speed at all then there is always a second option. :slight_smile: still since the question talks in minute details I’ll edit that part. :smile:

Cut a lemon in half. Insert 7-8 cloves in the half lemon and keep it in the corner of the room. I have heard this helps. Do try and let us know as well :stuck_out_tongue:

Cleanliness in your home and surroundings is also a solution many of times…:grimacing::grimacing:
