MB HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, January 24, 2012 5 PEST PREVENTION SMOKING THEM OUT PLENTY OF PEST REPELLENTS Janita Singh THE GOOD OIL FOR YOU Candles and oils are all favourites in our fight to repel insects in and around the house. Oil of citronella has been used for centuries as an insect repellent. It is found in many familiar insect repellent products such as candles and even sprays. Coils, chalks, torches and vaporisers are also popular and simple options to use Citrolella oil is an option to keep you bite-free outdoors. WARMER weather signals the return of biting insects. As you enjoy more time outdoors, be prepared for these nasties. Effec- tive insect repellents can protect you from serious mosquito and tick-borne diseases. Key points to remember when selecting an in- sect repellent include: Which insects you want you or your house protected from; The length of time you need protection; The ingredients listed in the product and if there are any allergy issues. There are numerous insect repel- lents to choose from for the house. From sprays and creams to elec- tric zappers, there is a deterrent out there to combat every type of pesky problem. Most people opt for sprays from the supermarket as an easy option. There are many varieties available but sprays and plug- ins are common. For those that don't mind paying extra for peace of mind, get a professional to spray your house for insects and even termites at this time of the year. Then there are electronic pest controls. As the name suggests, these are electrical devices plug- ged in to repel or eliminate pests. Hardware stores and garden cen- tres usually stock them. Although these have been around for a long time, recent technology has seen many of them modified to be more effective and environmentally friendly.
