Will this work to keep the mosquitoes away or kill them?The mosquitoes are the deadliest of human creatures that make us so afraid of many diseases. They are deadly and now the dengue menace is real. Various "natural" remedies are also being talked about.
Look at this for example. This remedy comes from a Youtube video in Tamil. It is somewhat simple, but the larger question is whether can be an electric shock or short circuit if we attempt the remedy.
The lady in the video advocates taking a fairly large quantity of neam leaves and getting it first crushed in a mixie and then adding that to burning coconut oil or the oil that is sold as most suitable for pooja lamps in the market. The powdered leaves should be heated up on low flame for some twenty minutes. After this, the remedy becomes even more interesting. We need to filter the oil, cool it completely, and store it in the same empty container that we get the chemical-based "All out" or similar products that are supposed to kill mosquitos.
We can safely plug into the socket and use it like we normally use the "All out" range or products. Is it safe? Will the oil be heated up beyond the normal range and create a nuisance at night? Will be it safe from the electrical angle?
Someone like Dr. Rao, who is an expert on these matters may please tell us about this remedy.
