Nothing beats a warm summer evening outdoors, grilling burgers, swimming, or just enjoying the company of friends and family. But there is one thing that can ruin even the best of times: mosquitoes.
Not only are they irritating when they swarm, but their bites can leave you itching for hours. For people with allergies or weakened immune systems, a mosquito bite can cause even more complications.
Even worse, a mosquito bite can cause serious and deadly diseases, like malaria, Zika virus, yellow fever, and West Nile virus. If you have pets outdoors, mosquito bites can lead to heartworms.
Luckily, there’s a product on the market that you can use to keep mosquitoes away from yard, pool, garden, patio, deck, or barbecue: citronella candles. Best of all, they don’t contain any harmful pesticides.
Burning citronella candles in your outdoor space can help make mosquitoes a thing of the past. Let’s take a look at how they work, what you should know about them, and some of the best ones on the market.
