Insect repellent with lemon and cloves


Lemon and clove insect repellent is a natural, non-toxic solution to keep mosquitoes at bay. This method is popular because it is easy to prepare and requires only a few common ingredients.

How to make your own mosquito repellent with lemon and cloves:


1 lemon
10 to 15 cloves


Take the lemon and cut it in half.
Insert the cloves into the lemon flesh. You can push them directly into the flesh or insert them into the skin.
Once the cloves are inserted into the lemon, place the two halves of the lemon in strategic places in your home or garden where you want to keep mosquitoes away. Recommended places are near windows, doors or on the table if you are outside.
The scent of lemon and cloves acts as a natural repellent against mosquitoes and helps keep them at bay.
You can also prepare several lemons this way and place them in different rooms or outdoor areas of your home.
Keep in mind that this method is most effective in relatively small spaces, such as in a room or on a balcony. Outdoors, especially in a large garden, effectiveness may be limited because the odors are more diffused.

It is important to note that while this solution helps keep mosquitoes away, it does not eliminate them completely. If you are in an area where mosquitoes transmit diseases, it is always advisable to use insect repellents approved by health authorities or to wear covering clothing to protect yourself from bites.
