832. Our Kitchens Drive Mosquitoes Insane

Traditional kitchen. Source: Curaçao Museum.

We lament our dry, arid climate and pray for rain… when we finally get some rain… we detest the seemingly ‘magical’ appearance of mosquitoes and flies. So our awesome problem-solving ancestors cooked up a plan to confuse the suckers, make their heads spin, keep them out of the kitchen for good: Polka Dots! White-on-Red.

Bonus: all-natural, no chemicals!

If you’re not committed to paint, you can simply get yourself some oven mittens. Source: Anthropologie(.com)
