Some home remedies to get rid of mosquitoes include burning Pinion wood in an outdoor fireplace, as the insects do not like the pungent type of wood. Also, the use of fan helps as the breeze makes it difficult for mosquitoes to fly.
Adding a few drops of lemon dishwashing detergent to paper plates keeps mosquitoes at bay as they are attracted to the lemon scent. Using a geranium-scented candle can help to keep mosquitoes away.
Sprinkling used coffee grounds in standing water where mosquitoes tend to breed is another home remedy as the grounds deprive the eggs of oxygen so they never hatch.
