Was going to sleep peacefully or do something … like workout in the bedroom but mosquitoes are not leaving you alone?

Top 5 best mosquito killer for bedroom


  1. Bayer Solfac 050 EW For Control of Mosquitoes 
  2. Mangalam Camphor Tablet
  3. Citronella Anti Mosquito 11″ 12 Incense Sticks
  4. All Out Ultra Mosquito Repellant Refill
  5. FORKLS Mosquito Net Double Bed Nets 
  6. HIT Mosquito and Fly Killer Spray

We are not talking about just repelling them but we want to make sure that they do not come back or just get killed. I know I sound violent but I do not want them to ruin my sleep and give me diseases like dengue, malaria, chikungunya etc. 

I am not considering insect killer light since in my experience these do not work but only work as a night lamp. So stay away from mosquito light trap or mosquito suction traps.

All these are just another variant of mosquito killer lamp and do work the best for indoor and bedroom usages.

Not considering mosquito zapper/electric mosquito killer since these will need active participation to work. And you will not wake up to kill some mosquitoes at night.

But to get that relief burning camphor is the best bet. And for that you might need to do a refill during night time.

But if you do not have a severe mosquito problem then this herbal insect repellent will do just fine.

Camphor tablets can be used to keep mosquitoes away from the bedroom by two ways.

  1. You burn them on a plate.
  2. You put them on a plate with some water.

Burning them is a much faster way to do it but you have to keep pouring camphor to get relief from mosquito bites quickly.

Best Characteristics of best mosquito killer for bedroom

Odorless: Strong odors are a big no for a bedroom. You can consider the mild smell of eucalyptus, lavender and citronella for the bedroom. These smells are really good for rest and also will repel mosquitoes.

But for best effect you should use chemical insecticides like solfac which repels and kills adult mosquitoes. This does not leave a strong smell this works great for the bedroom.

But keep away from children and pets.

Easy to Use: Although chemical mosquito killer for bedrooms works the best but you need to follow strict rules of wearing gloves, cap, mask etc to be safe. Thus from time to time you have to rely on easy to use, low toxic methods of repelling or killing mosquitoes for bedroom.

You can use HIT spray, goodnight/allout vapor, camphor, citronella sticks etc. These are easy to use and do an average job of keeping your bedroom free from mosquitoes.

Long Effect: Most mosquito killer for bedrooms in India provide temporary effect. For long ger relief time you have to spray TATA sentry, Solfac etx chemical based mosquito killers. These can keep the bedroom mosquito free for a few days.

You should also use a safer, easy to use mosquito killer in your bedroom so that mosquitoes are unable to hide in the bedroom. For this you should use popular mosquito sprays and vapors.

Not harmful: To get rid of mosquitoes from the bedroom in India you might need to use chemical mosquito killers but these are harmful if not taken special care for it. Thus I recommend using strong chemical based solution once a week and keep using popular easy to use mosquito killers once a day to keep mosquitoes in check.

These all suggestions are mostly based on my experience in India with mosquitoes which are related to the bedroom.
