In Houston, countless mosquitoes are going around the city, especially during the summer season. It’s part of our lives whether we like it or not, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t do anything to combat these pests.

Life After Bugs is one of Houston’s leading pest control service providers, and we’re always looking for ways to educate our readers and clients when it comes to these things.

In this article, we’re going to share our favorite all-natural remedies for mosquito bites.

Surely we have all been bitten by mosquitoes in the past, right? So sit tight and read through these all-natural remedies because you don’t know when these will come in handy.

  1. Aloe Vera

If we could choose our favorite plant when it comes to combatting mosquito bites, then this will surely be aloe vera. This plant has a soothing effect and it has been helping with sunburns for years on end. Although did you know that the same properties that heal your sunburn can also soothe mosquito bites? This is all thanks to aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory properties.

  1. Basil

This garden herb is not only delicious, but it can also double as a mosquito bite remedy. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties, basil can help you fight against the itchiness and redness caused by mosquito bites. It’s a win.

  1. Ice

You might not think of ice that much, but this is really an all-around injury treatment. Once you receive a mosquito bite, this will sometimes feel uncomfortable and hot. So it’s best to use an ice pack and gently apply it to the bite.

This will provide an immediate relief from the itchiness that you’ve been feeling and it can also combat the swelling.
