Mosquito Control Products
About Mosquito Products
Our mosquito products are designed to repel mosquitoes both as personal repellents as well as for area coverage. For example our mosquito repelling coils when spaced ten feet apart can create a larger area of repelling coverage. For personal repellents applied directly to the skin, like the Bugables™ mosquito repelling wipes and spray, essential oils like thyme and geraniol are used to repel. If killing mosquitoes is more of your goal, PIC features two bug zappers equipped with Octenol, an EPA-registered attractant for mosquitoes. By placing Octenol on or near the bug zapper using the universal clip provided, the effectiveness of the bug zapper is increased. Ongoing, daily use of this type of device could impact the mosquito population around your home. If repellents are preferred, PIC has several options that are not applied to the skin. With over 65 years of experience manufacturing and innovating mosquito pest products, PIC has plenty of solutions that fit your individual needs.
Caring for Mosquito Bites | Treatment
According to WebMD, saliva from a mosquito triggers an allergic reaction that causes the area of the bite to become red, itchy, and swollen. Since only female mosquitoes bite, the first reaction can be a sting or nothing at all. Each person responds to mosquito bites differently. The reactions vary from person-to-person ranging from itchy bumps to hives and to even blisters.
Once bitten, medical experts strongly suggest to leave the bite alone and resist scratching. Scratching can disturb or open the skin causing an infection or bacteria to enter the area.
To relieve the itch and lower your chances of an infection:
- Wash the area with soap and water.
- Apply calamine lotion or anti-itch cream.
- Put an ice pack on the bite.
- Take an over-the-counter antihistamine.
- Raise the area of the bite to reduce and prevent swelling.
- If a bite causes fever, vomiting, or shortness of breath, call 911 or go to an emergency room immediately.
