You know. You’re trying to finally fall asleep after a hard day and suddenly you hear that annoying mosquito buzz. Catching a mosquito is often not easy. The mosquito may be buzzing next to your head, but as soon as you turn on the light to chase it away, it’s like the ground has fallen away. And not only can’t you see it, you can’t even hear it. Fortunately, there’s a solution, and that’s a simple flashlight. With this simple trick, you can quickly track down the pesky creature and return it to bed.
Prevention above all
But before you run around your bedroom at night with a flashlight catching pesky insects, prevent it. Just place a mesh in one window and you can happily ventilate on hot days and during the night without being bothered by mosquitoes or anyone else from the insect kingdom. Another great solution is certain plants that mosquitoes hate. Their smell will be so unpleasant that they will avoid your window. Examples of such plants include:
However, if you already happen to have a mosquito hold in your bedroom. It’s good to have a flashlight handy, and ideally a working one. If it fails you and you find you forgot to charge it, your cell phone can still save the day. A flashlight, however, will be better. Follow these steps. First of all, turn off all light sources, absolute darkness in the room is necessary. Then turn on the torch and hold it close to you. Now we’re going to let you in on a secret. It’s not the light that attracts mosquitoes, it’s your breath and smell. So breathe deeply to attract it faster.
Shadow is a traitor
When a mosquito flies through a flashlight beam, you will see its large shadow on the wall. This will give it away and you will be able to observe it beautifully, right up until the moment it approaches you. If he starts to land, prepare to be hit. The moment he’s out of sight, it’s time to finish the fight and say goodbye in one fell swoop. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to return to bed and drift off to an undisturbed sleep. Always keep a flashlight handy, though, in case an unwelcome guest wanders in.
