this is perhaps simplest way to get rid of mosquitoes .
Item required:
1. camphor. 50 grams .(as shown in photo)
It should last for a month or more.

take any small bowl , put one camphor tablet in it. fill it with water . 
normal water will do.
put an any corner of your room.
you can see immediate effect .if there were any mosquitoes they will go away.

to make more effective,crush camphor slightly.
if room is big, use two bowls with same process.
you can change water after 2 days. use old water it to wipe floor .

I hope this project reaches poor people in asia and africa.

If you don't get in small sizes, try breaking it in capsule size to avoid wastage .

This trick worked for me; no more !&curren;#~|`^&uml; mosquitoes in da house!! <br>thank you very much for sharing this !!
welcome and please spread word so as maximum people can be benifitted from it.<br>
Looks good! I've always stuck with citronella, but this is a nice alternative.
ya, go on ,<br>try it and spread the word.
I have camphor trees, but they don't seem to do much outside, still have mosquito. Would leaves or branch work indoors, instead of pills?
leaves should help. I think the main component is smell.it should smell to draw mosquitoes &amp; flies away.
yeah! i try this this process work instant and also you can burn camphor. Thanks for sharing.
Anyone who cares about their pets do not use this where they can access it. If ingested as with any essential oil can cause seizures liver damage and death. There are safe home remedies; this isnt one of them
Not working here in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.. I am trying in closed room
<p>I'm going to surely try this and see if it works. I've read that burning neem leaves can also be helpful.</p>
Its useless
<p>Thank you for providing such useful information @jignesh. But the method worked when the no. of mosquitoes were at minimal level , during peak hours when there no. is plenty on ordinary days this method fails. Please provide solution to it if any . I added 60 g of camphor in about 200 ml of water.</p>
<p>not working in balcony</p>
it will work in closed spaces . not in balcony.<br>
<p>trying it today, let me see what happens</p><p>What is </p><p>Citronella</p><p>where can i get it</p>
<p>It is not working in balcony .</p>
Hw much camphor needs to be put in water. Is it 50 gm tablet which needs to be put in water?
hi it should initially be 100 grams and then you can add about 5 to 10 grams daily.<br>
Thank you for sharing this information on getting rid of mosquitoes. I hate mosquitoes and I have called a <a href="http://www.outdooraccentslighting.com/mosquito-abatement/" rel="nofollow">mosquito control in chicago</a>, but that did nothing. I will give this a try. Thank you for your help!
I will try this next summer. I am in southern hemisphere.
Yeah, I am in Florida (The Panhandle) and we have them the size of small RC helicopters hahah. Thanks for the info!
In recent years the mosquitoes here are much smaller, and more aggressive. Sometimes I hurt ankles from scratching, and I have to apply myself white vinegar in quantity to relieve itching.
yea if your really sick and tired of Black fly's, Mosquitoes, and any thing else that like to take you blood all you need to do is take 2 odorless garlic capsules once a day and those pesky little bitters won't bother you at all
In the tropical jungle, we frequently find ourselves in camping group. Since this kind of smorgasbord is exactly what mozzies look for, the best thing you can hope for is to make yourself a less attractive target. <br><br>1. INgest lots of garlic. Raw. 5 cloves a day a week before is potent. <br>2. Take frequent showers. <br>3. Stay off any scents. This includes shower gels cologne after shave and the like. <br>4. Wear light coloured clothing. <br>5. Have a little citronella on you, or a ciggie. <br>6. Sit beside a person who does not observe hints 1,2,3,4 and 5. <br><br>It never fails.
zazenergy : Citronella works better than camphor. I use both. Bear in mind, camphor and kids can not mix. And it burns quite nicely.........<br>
I do not believe that I would use this camphor in an enclosed places. I'm checking but I believe that this could be allergenic to some people,Especially if the have lung problems.. <br><br> I am checking the toxicity of this vapor :<br>It can also be synthetically produced from oil of turpentine. It is used for its scent, as an ingredient in cooking (mainly in India), as an embalming fluid, for medicinal purposes, and in religious ceremonies. A major source of camphor in Asia is camphor basil.
i have instructed to dilute in water. so no direct contact. it should not have ill effect on your health.
