If there's one thing that will annoy you this summer, it has to be itchy, red, and swollen mosquito bites.

In the video above by ModaMob, we learn five natural ways to treat those pesky little mosquito bites that show up (often in the most awkward of places to scratch). The best part? You can find all five ingredients right in your kitchen. While you can't fully escape mosquitoes all summer long, these tips will ensure an easy fix if you're spending a lot of time outdoors.

And if you feel like mosquitoes only love feeding off your skin, it could potentially be true. Some studies have shown people with type O blood, people who drink beer or who are pregnant are more likely to be bitten by this insect, IFL Science reports.

You can also prevent being bitten in the first place by avoiding open water or wearing light-coloured clothing, and avoid further irritation by not scratching. Unfortunately, this one is probably the hardest rule to follow.
