The strongest insecticide against mosquitoes is in the kitchen: you make them disappear for free.


Whole Cinnamon Sticks

In Chinese medicine, it is often used as a pain reliever and to combat intestinal viruses. Additionally, cinnamon contains large amounts of iron and calcium, making it a natural mineral supplement.

Cinnamon not only makes sweets more appetizing with its scent, but it is also a smell that many insects find unpleasant. This makes it a useful ally in combating insects, especially mosquitoes. It is a spice that is extremely effective as an insecticide. You can use sticks, powder, or essential oil to make your own insecticide spray.

Goodbye, Bugs!

To make an insect spray safe for pets, fill a spray bottle halfway with vinegar and halfway with water.

To make the mixture more effective, you can add 20 drops of essential oil or four cinnamon sticks. If you use essential oil, you don't have to wait for the mixture to settle. However, if you use cinnamon, you may have to wait a few days for the spice to release the essential oil into the liquid.

Essential Oil

The value of cinnamon lies in its ability to repel mosquitoes, making it a natural repellent that can be sprayed on skin and clothing, as well as around plants, to prevent eggs from settling in saucers.

The mixture of water, vinegar, and cinnamon can also be used as an insecticide spray to protect homes and gardens from pests. However, caution should be exercised when applying it to the skin, as cinnamon can cause irritation.
