Even while sleeping in the night, these mosquitoes disturb us and make our sleep uncomfortable. This forces us to use mosquitoes repellent spray, creams or liquids which work on electricity.
There are many mosquitoes repellent creams in the market, which we can use on our skin but those will harm us more.
