2. Install screens for windows 

Screens can prevent mosquitoes while still ensuring your home remains ventilated. You can install screens over your windows and balcony area. There are many types of screens available, including permanent and removable ones.

4. Pick lighter shades for your home

Mosquitoes are attracted to the heat retained by dark colors. Lighter colors are more likely to reflect heat, so mosquitoes are less likely to notice it. Incorporate light colors into furniture, walls, curtains & carpentry.

 

5. Use surface materials that are cool to the touch

Mosquitos are attracted to warmth and thrive under humidity. To keep your home cool, select other stylish materials like natural stone, marble, cement or porcelain tiles.
