Mosquitoes grow and develop in a temperature range of 20-25oC. Especially in Vietnam where the hot and humid climate is an ideal environment for mosquitoes to breed. Besides, the temperature in our house will usually be warmer and more comfortable, not subject to the harsh influence of nature. So mosquitoes always like to “settle” in houses. They easily find food in homes, especially those that are not cleaned daily. Please clean your house regularly to prevent mosquitoes.

Regular house cleaning is the best way to effectively repel mosquitoes
When mosquitoes attack, they will put saliva into the human body, making them feel no pain. Makes mosquitoes can suck blood until full. The redness and itchiness of the skin at the site of a mosquito bite is caused by the body activating the immune system’s response to the mosquito’s saliva. The body will release a number of substances to “deal” with the protein in the mosquito’s saliva that has just been introduced. Depending on the location of each person, the red and itchy swelling caused by mosquitoes may last longer than usual.
Not only that, scratching the mosquito bites is also one of the reasons why they stay red and swollen for longer because the wound may have been infected. Mosquito bites in children will often be red, swollen and itchy for longer than adults due to the sensitive young skin as well as the immature immune system.

Sound waves below the threshold of 20Hz are infrasound, above 20,000Hz (20KHz) are called ultrasound. The human ear can hear in the frequency range of 20-20,000Hz (20KHz). Meanwhile, effective sonar mosquito repellent devices are advertised as using waves with a frequency range of 16-65KHz, although they may not affect hearing and ear structure, but they can. to health.

Accordingly, advertising for this product line is often used in terms that seem very scientific, but are actually a hoax. Electromagnetic waves can repel insects, but only in an environment with a certain wave strength. In the normal human environment, electromagnetic waves usually do not have much impact on insects. Moreover, electromagnetic waves are inherently not beneficial to human health.”
“There is no research or scientific basis to prove these mosquito repellent software works. In principle, the sounds in biological communication can attract or repel insects, but for which types of mosquitoes, how much frequency must be calculated specifically. Electronic ultrasonic mosquito repellent devices are not effective in preventing mosquito bites. Sometimes advertising is only based on principles, but reality is not.”
