Are you tired of dealing with mosquitos? Well, dry ice can help keep these annoying pests at bay. Mosquitos are notoriously known for biting anything with a pulse, which may cause you to have red itchy bumps. Now, purchasing mosquito traps can be pricey, and let’s be honest, most of them don’t even work. However, dry ice can, and you can follow a few easy steps to creating your mosquito repellent by doing the following.
Make Sure To Purchase Dry Ice
The first step is to buy dry ice, which can be purchased at your local grocery store. You didn’t know dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide, which releases carbon dioxide when it melts. Mosquitos can be tricked into believing there is someone or anything worth biting.
It’s important to note that you want to handle dry ice with care because it can burn your hand without wearing gloves. So, it’s critical to always make sure you’re wearing gloves or avoid making contact with the dry ice itself.
Purchase A Mosquito Trap
If you’re in an area with tons of mosquitos, you most likely have the ultraviolet trap used for mosquitos. And if you don’t already have the ultraviolet trap, you should definitely consider buying one. Whichever trap you decide to buy won’t matter because you’ll have the dry ice doing all the work to attract the mosquitoes. Therefore, once the dry ice tricks the mosquitos, the trap you bought will do its job of killing them.
Location of The Traps
You’ll want to take some time thinking about where you want to set up the mosquito traps. Typically, you want to put them far away from the common arrears of your home. To make the ultraviolet trap or traps you purchased more effective, you may put dry ice around or inside the traps.
Make sure to keep the dry ice far away from children. To make it easier on yourself, you can put the dry ice inside cloth bags and hang them up inside. Doing so will help to ensure the safety of everyone in the home.
